|I think it's a combo of both the dog and the owner. A friend of ours adopted a Chi puppy and were having a heck of a time getting him housetrained.
They started to see a pattern in his accidents, and accepted that they had given him too much freedom of the house. That said, they rectified the issue and limited his house access, and worked on litter training him. They have a large dog who uses the doggy door, but Rolex, their Chi, just couldn't make it outside unless he was right next to the door.
So, they placed several litter boxes around the house, and re-trained him to the litter boxes. Now, they have no issues.
My mother in law has a Toy Rat Terrier, and he was a breeze, but was still given access to too much of the house at the beginning. Each dog is different, and so are the owners.
