He shows absolutely NO interest and ive tried to let him see his stuffed animals go on it and i tried to make it so fun and he just doesnt care. I know u have to let them want to do it before you really can make things happen but some helpful tips would be nice!!!

I'm not done with the whole process, but I have found something that seems to work. My husband and I use a timer, set it for 30 minutes and when it dings ask him if he needs to go. If he says no, we reset it again for another 30 minutes and insist he goes when it dings again. I used this in the very beginning starting with 10 minutes and then spreading it out to 15 then 20 until he started to hold it. Of course I put him in underwear instead of pull-up because pull-up don't let him really know when he's wet himself. Also I don't use a kid potty. I use a seat that fits the real thing so he feels like a big kid. After he did it the first time I rewarded him with a penny instead of a treat. He loves to put them in his piggy bank. I'm still having trouble with him going #2, but I hear that's totally normal with boys. At least he's going #1 all the time in the potty and he's beginning to tell me when he has to go.
