1 month should be more than sufficient.
most dogs will probably get it within 2 weeks

Agree, but more importantly, use the right method to teach and train your dog!
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

do u have any ideal technique or method to train dogs or cats for potty training?
especially in singapore hdb flats, it is quite important for dogs and cats to pee and poot at the designated places... easier for us owners :)

Hmm, I’m not sure about cats because I don’t own any cats. But I have a mix-breed dog adopted from a shelter years ago. I had her paper trained.

Start off by deciding which area in the house you want to designate as your dog’s toilet, mine was the back of the kitchen. Give enough space and let your dog be comfortable in that area so that she is not scared to stand over the papers. Also, try not to change the designated spot.

Initially when I got my dog, the first time she peed was some random spot in the house. I took newspaper and stain it with her pee, then put the bundle of newspaper at the designated potty area. Cleaned the area she initially peed at with a mix of water and white vinegar to remove her pee odor so she wouldn’t go back to the same spot for potty. Then I use treats to entice her into the potty area then she’ll take in the smell of her own pee. I did this cycle everytime she peed at a random spot in the house and she was paper trained within the first week of adopting her. Another important thing is to be patient, when she pees at the wrong spot, have to let the dog know its not right. I basically just says “no” to her everytime she does something wrong. She eventually learns the meaning of “no”.

Anyway, i learned this from the person who founded the shelter i adopted my dog from. Not sure if others do the same but it definitely worked very well with my dog and I do live in a hdb flat. Hope this helps!   ;D
