I need help with potty training my Imperial Shih Tzu

by Margaux

Hi,

I am the proud Mommy of a ten month old Imperial Shih Tzu. I have had her since she was about 14 weeks old. She is mostly potty trained, but not 100%.

I have had two regular sized Shih Tzu's previously, and while stubborn they were both totally trained by about 6-7 months. With this little baby the issue seems to be that she gets it when I am right in front of her, she will ask to go out, but if she is on her own sometimes for a few minutes, there might be a pooping accident.

This is not happening often, but it is happening, and I am struggling to know how to teach her to ask me to go out.
