Cat scratching the couch, climbing on counters, drinking from puddles are all bad behavior. You can learn your cats or dogs that it’s bad behavior to do so. When you something like this happen, click your pet and you can lecture them about their misbehavior.
While the change won’t be immediate you should see your pets misbehaving less after reprimanding them, and with enough reinforcement they will learn not to misbehave in such a way.
If you find it cute or amusing your pets climb on counters for example, you don’t have to lecture them about their behavior and they will continue to do so.
When a dog has to go potty he will walk to the front door and start whining about it. When you see this happen you can command them to go potty and they will walk outside to do so. If you repeat this a few times they will eventually go by themselves.
Only a Sim can learn the training skill that will help dogs to learn tricks. This will help your Sim to train their pets faster. You can also unlock new tricks when you level up. If you aren’t very fond of leveling things you can also use a cheat.

The problem with apartments is that they aren’t conventional residential lots. As a result, dogs can’t go potty by themselves. Your Sim needs to take them out on a leash.
