Its impossible to say, some pups come nearly house trained already. And some take awhile to catch on. It kinda depends what method your using, and how the breeders kept the puppy. Do you plan on crate training your puppy? i think thats the easiest way to house train a puppy.

The key is to always set them up to be successful, basically the amount of months old they are is the number of hours they can hold it minus one. So a 4 month old pup can last about 3 hours. When getting a new puppy take them out after they wake up, after they play, about 20-30 mins after they eat.

I was lucky with Noah since I was able to be at home with him for his first month. We went outside every couple of hours. There has only been 2 mispoops and some trial and error with tinkles. I would say that he was trained within a few weeks.

He picked up on using the bells fairly quick. I should not have made mine with so many jingle bells as it's loud! He also seems to know that when he jingles it make me magically appear from the back of the house. So, I'm not sure who is training who.

My dog was trained in a few weeks. She got the idea after awhile, that there would be no pottying in the house, because we took her outside after her meals and every couple hours.

Well..i guess it depends on the breed and how much time you are home with them.

Smaller breeds like chi's and my mom's cavvy, don't seem to ever become housetrained. Puppy pads are great though,so they learn to at least contain the mess in a particular area.

I have 2 cockers, 5 and 9 months old. They would be less trusted in the house for longer periods of time. I use a crate if I am gone. I think crate training works the greatest.

It depends on the age of the dog you already got too,the younger they are,the more they go.The more trips outside you will have to make.

I only work on weekends,so I have time all week to maintain consistant outings.My husband on weekends.If you work many hours and don't have someone to help with your dog, they may even slip in the cage. They will get better as they get older where they can hold it. I just think it takes months to really ensure housetraining. Alot of grown dogs have been known to lose that training too.

I wish you luck!

We used the bell system, and then we would take her out on a leash while saying 'go potty' over and over and over until she went. When she did we would giver her lots of treats with 'good go potty!'s. Its great because now we can tell her to go potty before going on a long car ride and such. It was really tedious and annoying, but the benefits really pay off.

Crate training never really worked for my dog, she hated it and would pee in her crate every night, even though we would take her out every 2-3 hours. She just wasn't a crate-trained kind of dog.
