I have house trained two basset hounds. For both it took about a year before they were completely house trained. In my experience it has not so much with training the dog, but more about being patient and just hang in there until the dog matures enough. Another thing that I have noticed is that before they become "safe" they have long periods where they have no accidents at all, but then suddenly they might have a kind of flash back and pee inside frequently. It passes though.

My first basset had to be fed after the same schedule each day, and I had to experiment with when to feed him. This was crucial for him in order to not have to go during the day. Mr. Runcible on the other hand does not care so much for the schedule and is able to endure the day anyway, regardless of meal times
