who has shih tzu's?

my aunt says it took her 2 yrs to train hers. at first i was really persistant with ours and she was doing good. then i got super busy looking for a new car and now really concentrating on potty training my daugther. so she has been neglected in her potty training. i tried the crate training but she won't go inside to stay just to get her toys or biscuit out. so my question is how long did it take to train yours? i'm really scared it's going to be a long time. as they are not very smart dogs.

  • I had one a few years ago. She was cute, but probably the dumbest dog I've ever been around. After a full year of consistency, she was still having accidents in the house. I finally gave her away. I couldnt handle it anymore.

  • I think dumb dogsare easier to train. Smart dogs think of ways to get out of doing what they are told to do.

  • i have 2 maltipoo x shihtzus..theyre 6 month old brothers..one of them is a whooole lot better in that department than the other..but they still both have accidents in the house..they are getting bettter, but..yaa its frustrating!!! whereas my golden retriever that ive had since he was a pup, and is now 1.5 has NEVER peed or pooped in he house..go figure!! lol i dont use crates for my dogs because in my house theres a lil room thats like 6x6 feet, with linoleum for flooring, so i use that as the dogs room..so they are in there when i go out, but all day and night they have free roam of the house, and i just put a puppy pad in the kitchen, and in the middle of the night, if need be, they use that..so i would try buying some of those..for my 2 theyre wonderfull!! hopefully by the end of summer they will be fully potty trained!! good luck!!
