My family has never had issues with potty training. Plain and simple, when you have a new puppy, take him/her out at least every 2 hours. Even if they don't look like they need to go. Even in the middle of the night. If you give them enough potty breaks at a young age they learn quickly where they are supposed to do their business. Of course, accidents do happen, but given plenty of opportunity and lots of praise when they go in the right spot, accidents will be kept to a minimum and the training will be quick. If puppy won't poop, but then does as soon as he's back in the house, try a little more play time outside before coming in. Play seems to help encourage bowel movements and gives them more time to realize that they need to pee.

I thought I had my Shih Tzu (9 mo old female)
housetrained
she would go out - go potty - I would reward her - two days ago - she did not want to go out - and rewarding her - she could have cared less. I have caught her going in the house twice - pee and boob by the door - What am I doing wrong????

This is a good article, but my problem is... I have a neighbor that has about 5 dogs and every time I take my 2 pups out her dogs bark and scare mine. They are in a fenced in yard, but my dogs don't realize that. They scare mine so bad, that they just run back to the door and come inside and poop. Any suggestions. Feel free to email me too. st0ner_ch1ck84@yahoo.com

Those are all great tips but for a lhasa apso none of those work and trust me i have tried them all! IF someone were to choose one for a lhasa apso i would choose a crate and after a few weeks or unil the dog is going in the crate then i would put the crate outside and after they are going to the door i would put in a doggy door and dump the crate in a spot in the yard where it is easily cleanable so the lhasa picks up the scent of the crate and will go outside in the same spot to go potty this can take up to 8 or 9 weeks to train a normal lhasa for a stubborn 10 to 12 and for a smart lhasa (all lhasas are pretty intellegent but if you get lucky with a smarter one...) 5 to 6 weeks. Your lhasa is probably average though. this method will work for puppies and adults. Your adult may not have used this method when it was younger so as an adult (for a lhasa is 2 and a half years)the lhasa might be able to pick up this habit of going outside even if it is older. This method is different for any other breed. Do NOT USE IF YOUR DOG IS NOT A LHASA. The routine can work for a stubborn lhasa better than the crate.
