We use kennel or crate training (with out potty pads) for this and we usually accomplish this in 3 to5 weeks. Night time is the worst since you have to take them out a few times for the first few weeks.

DO NOT USE THE CRATE FOR PUNISHMENT. If through out the night if your dog barks allot, try putting the dog in the crate a few minutes at a time through out the day. Using a reward to get them in helps. We trained our dogs to go in when we said night night using the reward training.

You need to pay close attention to your dog and only let them eat when you say it's time, I believe this works hand in hand. A rule of thumb is for every week old the dog is they should be able to hold it for 1 hour but don't make they try to hold it while training. When you feed or water them give, them about 5 to 15 minutes at first and take them outside. When you see that this is working you can increase the time span.

This all makes a difference to what time of the year it is also, if it's winter and you live in a snowy region and it's a pup they're not going to want to go outside when it's time. Your persistence is the number one factor, if you're not consistent neither will the dog. If this is a family thing and it shold be everyone has to use the same commands.

AnswerIt depends on how persistent and patient YOU are. I have the best luck with only letting my puppies outside to potty for the first 4-5 weeks of training. That way they get the hint that outside is for relieving themselves. Use a potty pad indoors and move it close to the door so you can at least tell if your dog is getting the hint to go to the door and you just missed it. Never, never push their noses in it. This tactic teaches the dog nothing. Look most puppies eat their own poop, do you really think shoving their nose in it will teach them anything new? The only thing they possibly learn is to fear you. If you do catch them beginning to go, yell no loudly and walk towards them. Do not snatch them up in anger, lift them up and say no very strongly, take them to the door and outside. Watch them go out there and take them in when done. Dogs don't understand punishment like we would like them to. As much as we would like them to be people, they are not and can't be expected to learn like children. They must be punished at the time of the infraction, not hours later. They won't remember what they are being punished for. Time, love, and patience it what it takes. And it takes as long as it takes. AnswerIt really depends on your dog and its breed. Dogs such as Labradors can take as little as a couple days or as long as a couple weeks. My Labrador learned in a week.

It really depends on how patient the owner is. If you are really patient then it could take 2-7 days. If your not that patient then it could take several weeks. I am really patient and I have a peekapoo puppy and it only took her 2 days.

AnswerA Few benefits of training your dog on your own are: save money, have a better behaved dog, have a stronger bond with your pet, and have fun. Learn how you can accomplish all these by training your dog at the comfort of your own home. These dog training success tips are legendary in their own way, don't miss out on learning about them and apply them on your dog training effort. You will be glad you did. So it all depends on how long it will take you on how much training you have. I used this course below cause it was cheap and effective.

You do not potty train dogs. You train them to defecate in appropriate places. It should take 2 to 4 weeks.

It might take 2-4 weeks to potty train your dog or more but you must be patient

It depends on the methods used, and on the huskies personality. Otherwise huskies are extremely smart dogs, and learn very fast. It only takes us about a month to potty train our pups.

Yes, but it will take a lot of work.

Take the pad (IT HAS TO HAVE URINE ON IT) so it can sense where it last did it and move it inside so it can potty. This may take a while to train, but it will get the hang of it.

User Avatar

yes you can it will take awhile though.

You have to take him outside every 30 minutes to go potty until he finally runs to the door to do it.It will take several weeks until he accomplishes it.

Just take the dog or puppy out a lot of times until they learn, if it seems they will never learn you should potty-pad train them. If you crate train them, potty training goes a lot quicker.

While every breed of dog is different and each dog itself different, there isn't a set standard of time. If I had to wager a guess from past experience, at least a month or so.Dedpends on the breed. For example, chihuahuas are not easy to potty train. Many chihuahuas i met never got potty trained. But for dogs like collies and other herding dogs are easily potty trained.

To help potty train a puppy you need patience. Make sure when you leave he has a crate. Take him out in the morning, after meals and before bed. If he makes a mistake scold him but do not hit him. Get a can with pennies and shake at him if you see him start to go in the wrong place then put him out.

Take the distance and divide by the speed of the train. That is how long it took for the train to travel.
