All of mine where house trained before they turned 3 month old, it helped that we had a doggy door and the older ones showed the little ones how to do it.

Holly was 4 months..I slowed the process by not crating right away, then by trying to use the puppy pads in the crate...had I not messed up it probably would have been a few weeks sooner Memphis was 7 months when we got him, and he was housetrained. Matter of fact, I wonder if he wasn't trained with a bell on the door, cause now when he has to go, he goes to the door knob and noses it. If we don't see him then he comes and paws our feet, as if to say "uh excuse me, I gotta go mom"

Lucky was about 6 months before I was really comfortable. We didn't have a crate at first and he got a little too used to peeing on the floor especially during the night. So even at four months I had to watch him like a hawk.

Shen just turned 5 months and we are fairly confident he is house-trained by now. He has lots of extra freedom now - used to be in the kitchen - and so far so good. I take him out often for a quick pee and he has been running to the door (I guess that is his new way of learning how to ask to go out) and looking at us to go out, too. We give him lots of praise when he does this with, "Wanna go outside?" It's really nice trusting him more and having him in our main living area hanging out with us most the time!!

Sparky was almost a year old. He kept getting a UTI everytime he started to get the hang of it. I was diligent, but the UTI's really held hime back. Thankfully he hasn't had a UTI in the last several months. I think it is because he doesn't squat so low to the ground now, he pees like a big boy!

My puppy caught on very quickly. Only about a couple of weeks. She only had 2 accidents in the house that were our fault because we forgot to take her out right away one morning and she never soiled her crate!

Both Sam and Ike were 9 weeks when they were house broken...they would have the rare accident until they were 4-5 months old. The accidents were always urinating while excited by 1 certain person, which became a family joke. The Vet said their bladder muscles are not completely mature until around 5 months old.
