Yes! Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs do take much longer in general to potty train but with patience and crate training and no free-choice water they do come around! Dr. Donna Ragona

I had very few problems with housebreaking my swissy. He is VERY eager to please, and when he sees that we are happy with his behavior, he thrives. I cannot say say for sure, but I would estimate that it took about a month, month-and-a-half to train him--- we brought him home at 7 weeks. I believe that the success of training is based on the personalities and wills of the individual dog and owner much more than the breed.
