When you ask someone how to potty train your dog, you might get an answer you don't want to hear. The reality of it is that everyone will have a different answer for you. I am sure that many of them work, but which one is the right one for you and your dog?
Some dog breeds react better to certain strategies where other dogs really do not at all. Also, some dogs will take much longer to potty train than others. This may require you to use wee wee pads in the house if you are not there all the time.
