The Bolo-Tzu is petite and may be a bit too small for little children. This hybrid, however, makes a great family pet when older gentle children are involved. The Bolo-Tzu is friendly and playful and not prone to barking. As a side note potty training may be difficult as this is inherent of both parent breeds.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
