I have an 8 week old female great dane (Delilah)and I have had her for a week now and potty training has been horrible. She is not getting it at all and I would love some tips on potty training my dane!

When I first got Suka, I had the same problem. But eventually she will get it. I took Suka out every half hour to an hour on a leash and if she went potty outside, she got a treat. If she is going in the house, try hanging a bell by the door that she hits if she has to go out to go potty. I taught Suka that and now she tells me when she has to go out by just hitting the bell. After she eats or drinks, take her outside. And at night, limit her water intake so she doesnt have to go in the middle of the night.

Have you tried crate training?
