Choosing the Best Crate for Your Shihpoo
Are you trying to decide on a crate for your furbaby Shihpoo? Perhaps you’ve seen a “puppy apartment” and think that is the way to go. Or maybe you are worried that your baby might need more room than a cramped little crate. Should you go with wire or plastic?

Todd explains why their Shihpoos never use their outdoor dog house, why they have different sized plastic crates, and how they used an “apartment” their sweet neighbor lent them.
How to Train a Shihpoo to Ring a Bell before Going Outside to Go Potty
Description. Based on the best advice I ever received about training a puppy, from my coworker Mark, here are the full 4 Steps to Potty Training Your Puppy.
- Introduce your new puppy to one room at a time for at least two to three days at a time, helping them to understand it is a living area, like a den, where instincts tell them they are not supposed to pee or poop
- Every hour or two, whenever they eat or drink or whenever you can encourage them to drink and eat, stay VERY vigilant because they are about to pee or poop
- Take them to the back door where you have hung a bell from the knob or installed bells along the floorboards. Ring the bell with their paw and take them outside to the lawn or other potty area
- Take a training treat (like the two we prefer at this link) outside with the puppy and give it to them AS SOON AS he or she pees or poops. Do not wait to give them the treat until they go inside or even leave the lawn. Otherwise, the positive association will be gone.
