I know it depends on the dog and the consistancy etc. but in general how long does it take? Hes about 7 weeks old, healthy, and a great eater. Also, would it be easier to train him to the puppy pads then outside, or just straight to the outdoors?

Generally, the larger the breed, the longer it takes, every dog is different. Some breeds are really tough, Yorkies are the top on my list. Labs are incredibly quick to house train..again GENERALLY speaking. Most dogs really have the idea of not having an accident in the crate, and going when you take them outside by 12-16 weeks, but that is with training, using a crate and being consistent...and only about 4-5 hours. 7-11 weeks they really need to go out every 2 hours, their bladders just aren't developed...usually. Putting your dog on a feeding and watering schedule will also help. You can go to this great training website and find a superbly written house training document. Ha ha.. Anyway, good luck and here you go!
