I've had a few experiences with housebreaking a dog. I remember that Sierra was the quickest learner. She was 9 weeks old when we got her. I started her on Saturday and by Monday she had it all figured out. The only time she had accidents indoors was when a human was at fault.\n \nMisha was the slow learner. She was four months old before she could go all night without an accident. It took over six months before she was fully housebroken. Part of the problem was she had such a tiny bladder. I had to start rationing her water because she would gorge on water if the bowl was full. Her bowl was small, but still too much for her. She peed when she was excited, too. Every time some came over I had to rush her outside first.\n \nWhen my Dad died and we moved, she lapsed for about two months. The new surrounding confused her. Finally, at about a year and a half, she was fully trained. I was beginning to worry that it would never happen.\n \nHow long did your dog take to be housebroken?
