I must say, that both of our dogs were generally easy to potty train. It took both of them about 3 to 4 days to 'get it'. We took them out every 20 minutes...we praised and treated with this 'chicken jerky' that is all natural. We then went from every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes and so on. you get the picture. They are both very affectionate and courteous gentlemen.
