Take it outside every 20-30 minutes. Praise it when it pees/poos outside, give a little treat when they come back in the house.


I dunno why people freak out about potty training dogs. It's easer than potty training kids. lol

My mom has a shi-poo (shih tzu/poodle mix) and she bought her when she was 8 weeks old, so all she did was buy some puppy pads and place 2 downstairs in different places and 3 upstairs and she told her to pee/poop,for the first few days she would carry her to the puppy pads after she ate or when she thought she had to go until she got the hang of it on her own. She did have a mistake on the carpet a few times but my mom popped her with a rolled newspaper about 3 times and she didn't use  it on the carpet anymore. hope this helps

When we got our poodle we crate treaned him. It was very easy. You put a pad dpwn in there with him. I wouldalso take him out ever hour. Give him lots of love when he dose good, but don't give him a treat he will want ont one every time.

Potty Training little dogs can be such a hassel because a lot of them do not like to go outside, more so when it is cold outside. I am a Pet Care technician so I get asked about potty training alot. I would take the puppy out every 1-1 1/2 hours, have treats with you, and when you get outside, tell the puppy to potty outside or whatever command you are going to use for potty but add outside to it. And when the puppy goes to the bathroom praise him/her a lot and give a treat. Also if the puppy has an accident inside, tell him/her no potty inside. I wouldn't use puppy pads unless you want the puppy to use the bathroom in the house on those all the time. And I do not agree with crate training but that is just me. I hope my advice helps.

Patience...I have a purebred shih-tzu, they take a little longer to potty train then other breeds. I gave her treats when she would make it outside.....but after she was trained, she could go all day and not have an accident in the house which she has free reign over...we do not kennel her when we leave the house.
