I think a lot of this is based on a really confusing idea about what potty training means. Potty training to me means a puppy will hold it and go outside (or go where he is supposed to, like a potty tray). Some small dogs may not be able to hold it for 8 hours, but that does not mean they aren’t potty trained. A yorkie that can’t hold it for 4 hours doesn’t mean she isn’t potty trained if she’s peeing where she’s supposed to. It means she needs to be taken out more often, and I think humans frustrated with having to take a puppy out blame it on the puppy not being trained. OR, the puppy is never completely trained because the humans are frustrated with having to take it out more often than they’d planned.
