I think I asked a question about a shih tzu earlier in this forum. Also, I have a few more questions if you don't mind

1.) I see a lot of..well, say for example, instead of "shih tzu" it's "shih poo?" But some toy dog breeds with "poo" I'm not sure what it's really supposed to be haha, so if someone could clarify.

2.) I am planning on litterbox training my shih tzu when and if I get it. Does anyone else litterbox train your small dog, how efficient do you find it to be, and if you have any tips for it to be successful?

Thanks muchos!

Ok, I can only answer the first question. a "shih-poo" is a shih tzu - poodle mix. poo=poodle.

poo means they are a mix with poodle in them. Say Shipoo's are most often Shitzu and Poodle, Pomapoos, are pomaranians and poodle , ect...

I don't know about litter training, other than I've hear alot of static about it...dogs eating the litter and so on....

as far as the shi-poo thing goes, im pretty sure its a shit tzu poodle cross- but check with someone who owns one on the board, im not a mixed breed expert.

as far as littler training Sasmintentions is quite right about the dogs eating the litter.
My old dog at some at a young age and got VERY sick, also many pups think its a place to play and therefore start to play and eat there feces.
i woul recomend, paper training, or use a "puppy pad" or "wee pad" and when ever you see your furchild start to sniff you tell him/her "on the paper" and when the dog pees on the paper PRAISE, tell it GOOD GO PEE. but make sure your dog knows how to pee on a leacsh and off a leash outside, becasue what happens when you got spend a vacation at "great aunt flossies", something tells me she might not like the idea of a dog using her kitchen or living room as an area to be associated with going to the bathroom

Yes, a ShihPoo/Shih-Poo/ShiPoo/Shiztu-Poodle/ShihaPoo (whatever way it is spelled) is the result of a shih-tzu bred with a poodle (or vice versa). Just a quick note, I have two shih-poos and they are both GREAT dogs!

I haven't done the whole litter box training thing, so I can't help you out on that one. Sorry!

All the best!
