    I own two Staffords,my boy was really easy to train but my bitch was a nightmare,I think it's down to the individual dog not breed ;)

    Hahaha Sal, I wish it were, all my Bulldogs were a nightmare (most on the rescue site you see are grown up dogs and still not housetrained) maybe it's their stubborness and the fact they can be idle buggers when they set their mind to it :D

    American Bulldogs, totally different kettle of fish, very easy to pick things up :)

    Been told Shar-Pei are very clean dogs, don't like making a mess and puppies as young as four weeks old try to get outside as they don't like soiling their beds or indoors - maybe next breed for me haha! :D

    Shih tzu... about 2 weeks (had him at 10 weeks and he was housetrained by 12 weeks). He is now 17 weeks and has had one accident in the house and that was our fault not his.

    Labrador.
    4 months.
    But he was doing really well after one week, it's just that we had the occasional accident up until he was 4 months old.

    I don't think it has anything to do with breed. It's just how you go about doing it.

    With Dixie she had hardly any accidents by the time I'd had her a couple of weeks. As I just made sure I gave her more than enough oppurtunities to get out to pee.

    With Dave, once most of his brothers and sisters had left it was easier to get him out, so again, only a few weeks.

    But you do have to stick to a schedule and keep taking them out often.

    A dog will never be house trained unless you give him the right times available to toilet.

    Our male Bichon was 8 months before he was fully housetrained but has been very clean ever since (except for a bit where he went through seperation anxiety) Our puppy Bichon who is 17 weeks old tomorrow seems to be getting there although she still has accidents in the house. Sometimes she will ask to go out and other times she won't bother.:rolleyes:

    It is well known that Bichons are meant to be a hard breed to housetrain and some people don't manage to do it.

    I voted average which the whippets were they quickly learned to go out for a wee but didn't always ask to be let out if they needed to go.

    The greyhounds were quite hard but both had lived in kennel William until he was 8 months and Button until she was 2 years. Neither are completely house trained we still have accidents but then greyhounds are not the most inteligent dogs in the world. Some one will not doubt say different on this one.

    Zoe the setter was easy to house train but then seemed to forget. She still sometime slips up if I am late getting up in the morning which isn't often with the greyhounds who need to go out at 5.30 every morning.

    I've got 2 miniature poodles and Cheeko only took a week or so. I've only had Blu a day and already he's started coming up and crying when he needs. Only had 1 accident since we got him so hoping it won't take too long either!!

    Buster and Silas were the only ones we had to train and they were completely trained in about 2 months. Basset hounds from experience are hell to house train it took about 6-7 months to train my friends dog
