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!
