    I wouldn't expect any problems... just give him plenty of opportunities to go out at first, he'll understand quickly what your asking of him.

    He should be OK....maybe the first few day he might get a little confused with new surroundings, but he really should be fine.

    Might depend if the previous owners had pets. Some dogs like to mark their territory. Hubby and I started out in a townhouse and got our little Boston..I couldn't house break him for over 1 1/2 years! We moved to a house and he instantly stopped peeing in the house! Thinking back someone at the townhouse had cats before us. Here they never had a pet. Like @Telly03 said, just give him lots of opportunities to go out.

    Congratulations on buying a home. I am a firm believer in pet doors as a way to prevent accidents in the house. @Angelgirl is right, if previous owners had pets he may want to mark his territory!

    Yay! I missed this post..sorry..a new home..so great. I think as long as he knows how to get outside where you want him to go..he will be fine. I would try and use same potty place and way to get outside for awhile. Just like when you were initially training him. I was going to ask what you meant about Samson likes new place in pm..duh..all very exciting. May I suggest you don't give him large stuffed animals right away!! Lol

    I would think that he'd be fine! Just like the others said, make sure to take him out more at first.

    My parents are divorced and I still go to both houses, and Delilah comes with me. She has no problem at all with her potty training when I take her back and forth between houses, or if I take her to completely new surroundings to visit.
