My Shih Tzu is about 14 weeks old and want to let you know it does get better with the potty training. He has accidents if we miss seeing him sniff around but never has a #2 in the house. It takes lots of patience and if your pet does not have accidents while you are holding him and most of the accidents happen taking him to the door my suggestion is hold and love them all the way to the door. These puppies are sooooo lovable and I never thought of me as a dog person but I definkeately am totally in love with this puppy. :)

If your puppy is soiling his crate, then the crate is too big.

I have a precious 8 week old femail Shih Tzu puppy. She is doing pretty well with the potty training but when we put her in the crate for 2 hours a day she almost always urinates in the crate. I dont want her to get in that habit. Is 8 weeks too young to crate train?

There is no mention what to do if you do have a puppy that does go potty in it's crate. I have a 3 month old shih tzu that we put in bed @ 10-11:00pm, & take him out in the morning between 7-8:00am. He more often than not goes #1 or #2 in his kennel over night. I don't know what to do, & can't find any advice on the subject. I spoke w/ a trainer who said hopefully he doesn't get in the habit of doing it or he won't stop. Well that doesn't help me very much!

Hi - I am the owner of a beautiful little girl Shih Tzu. She just turned 2 years old in October. She potty trained on Pee-Pee Pads as soon as we brought her home at 9 weeks. This was never a problem. The problem is that is we are not at home (we live in a Condo) and she relieves herself, she will eat it. I have tried everything that has been recommended and nothing seems to work. Do you have any suggestions???? This can not be a healthy thing for her.
