My 3 month old pup came from the breeder at 9 weeks pretty much litter box trained. The breeder used the litter box with a puppy pad in it, not litter, and that's what we've continued with. Nico goes outside as well (and much prefers the outside to poop!), but he uses the litter box when he needs to, such as when no one is there to let him out. Within the past week he's started playing with the puppy pad. He hasn't gotten to the point of shredding it, but he gets it pretty bunched up in the litter box. I'm wondering if we might do better with litter in the box instead of the pad, or if he'd just play with the litter and make a huge mess. Before I run out and buy a bag of dog litter to try, I thought I'd ask if anyone uses the litter and likes it (or could compare it to using the pads in a litter box). Another thing I'm considering, since we have two litter boxes, is to put the pad in one and litter in the other and see which one he prefers (or makes less of a mess with!).
