it took about 2 weeks before he went to the door all the time..but I had to be consistant with him.
Well, we had a dachshund and it took something like 2 months (but, really never since they pretty much do what they want
I was lucky. I have a female golden retriever, when she was 3 years old we got another dog, and she housebroke the new puppy for us.
Took a couple of months. Still makes mistakes here and there.
From what we here from other Basset Hound owners that is not uncommon.
With one of them it was easy cause we got him in the summer and he just got used to doing it outdoors. really like a couple of days, the newspaper method and the drops with another also worked pretty well.
I highly suggest using peepads. i wrote about the ones that work well in one of my hubs.
It took about a month before she was totally trustworthy in the house. Crate training was the method I used. Got her when she was about 8 weeks old and it was the easiest house-breaking cycle I have ever been through. It's kind of tough to put your baby in a "cage", but it becomes their den and they learn to love it. She's 7 years old and to this day she will go into her crate, curl up and take a nap or sleep through the night without prompting. The crate is her refuge from the world!
Yeah i agree, a couple of months is normal, but i do believe it depends on the dog. Some dogs can get it right within weeks whereas some take ages if they are really excitable.
3 days 1 pup 1 crate and insta poddy trained. Trick is you leave him in the crate all day and only let him out to pee and you take it outside then directly back in the cage after eating , walking and affection time. Make sure that the crate is small animals dont like to pee where they sleep. This will in turn make you have to take the dog out ever 1-3 hours depending on the size. Stick with this stategy and within 3 days the dog will be whinning at the door
He managed to break the house within a few weeks. Carnage. That's the trouble with terriers.
one day, I tied my dog's leash around my waist for two weeks except for the time he was in his crate for naps and bed time. He started to pee on the floor once, i said " no, outside to potty" and he has gone outside since then. He is a Rhodesian ridgeback, six months old now. Phrases like that's not yours and you don't belong there have worked wonders.
We have a stubborn Parson Russell that still isn't completely housebroken and she's 8. Our German Shepard learned the first day.
It took about 2 wks give or take a few days, but I followed the exact same time frame everyday as far as when he ate and when I let him out. Only had one accident and that was my fault, I didn't go straight to the door to let him out.
Using the crate method, my pit-bull puppy, while she was only 7 weeks old, learned to hold herself in a matter of days, took about 2 week to get to the point i can release her in the house and she would signal me that she needed to pee, at that point it was just a matter of being aware of her and letting her out the door in time.
If done properly there is no reason a 3 months old puppy won't know that it needs to hold its business while in the house, and signal you that it needs to go out for pee.
