Here are the breeds she lists as either small or tiny
and either Medium High or High in Ease of Training.
The ease of training means all training, but she lists in a paragraph if they are known to have housetraining difficulties or take longer. These did not.

As another poster has mentioned, within the breeds there will be individual differences. Like I mentioned, my Pug was very easy to housetrain. She writes in the paragraph about pugs that they can be difficult to housetrain.

For what it's worth, here are the tiny to small breeds listed with Medium high or High ease of training with no noted housebreaking issues:
American Eskimo (Miniature and Toy)
Australian Terrier
Border Terrier
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Miniatrue Schnauzer
Poodle (Miniature and Toy)
Welsh Corgi (Cardigan and Pembroke)

It's not just the individual dog, it's also the owner. You have to be very aware of where your dog is and what it's doing, while you're house training. Tiny dogs can sneak off and find tiny awkward places to pee that you won't know about until you smell it.
So just keep that in mind too. Persistance really pays off. Jesse (Chihuahua) was very easy to house train when I first got him (although he was an adult already). In his golden years he's not so great however. Poor old fella. lol

Say NO to animals in pet shops! Rescue a friend instead.

Hi to all and thanks so much for the response.

Your dogs are all so sweet too.

Thanks mjb for your support all along since I gave Zoe up and the list of breeds and the dog book. I will try and find it or a similar book. A couple I know loaned me a book but it is old and limited in the breeds for some reason.They have a Bichon.

I have always read and heard that the chihuahua is a very hard breed to train and here there are people who have one and didnt have that problem so I guess it is right as said on here that it is the individual dog not the whole breed.

I miss haveing a dog and it is sooooooo quiet around here. We live in the middle of nowhere and I am alone a lot when hubby is in the city working.

We have cats and love them but I miss the companionship,the walks and the many kisses. Hopefully I will have a little friend in the near future
