how long did it take to potty train your pup? We got Niko just over a week ago and he is doing so well. not one accident at all. we have left him in the house alone for 4+ hours just to see, (mind you we wont get mad if he does have an accident) but he hasnt had one. of course hes going nuts to go out but he holds it. Niko is only 4 months old. also once we knew he understood to go outside to go potty, 2 days ago we started to make him go to the kennel in the backyard to do his business. i woke up this morning and walked outside with him and sure enough he went right to his kennel and peed and pooped. i was so proud of him. the reason i ask is that i have heard it take quite some time to potty train i was just wondering if he is reall learning that fast or is it some type of fluke. like i said we have only had him for 1.5 weeks and he knows "sit", "off", almost "down", is leash trained, and knows to go in his crate at night when i lay down. the lady i got him from never even started training him so im a bit bewildered at how good hes been. oh yeah and he hasnt tried to chew anything but his toys.
