I am new here, have been lurking for a little while but this is my first post. We just bought our very first GSD Puppy from Adam Kuhn so the puppy is Haus Kuhn. We have only had the puppy for 2 weeks and I am totally in love with him. He is however a handful but he is a puppy so that's expected plus he seems to be a working line dog so double that energy.
My question is how long does it take to train a puppy to be completely house broke? Its been awhile since I had a puppy so its sort of a blur to me now. This little guy seems to be super smart. I already manged to train him sit, come, retrieve the ball, and he is almost trained for down commend. He does all but down commend without a treat now but I still give him treats for doing those things just not every time as I used to. He is now able to hold his pee pretty much entire night when in his create and he knows as soon as I let him out of the create we go outside to potty. However he is still having accidents and not asking to go while he is playing. I am super patient with him and just try to catch him in the act which I do for the most part and we go outside right away. The little guy is only 10 weeks old so very young. I just want to have an idea from those of you who have had to train a GSD puppy and find out how quickly do they catch on to the house breaking part.
Thanks in advance
