I would not expect a puppy or dog of any kind to use a hooded kitty
litter tray.  Dogs can be taught to use litter trays, but they should be
completely open, and more spacious than what is required for a cat.  The
differences between the bathroom habits of dogs and cats needs to be
taken into account.  The process for litter box training is the same as
for training not to go in the house - a good schedule, supervision,
regular trips to the area to be used, keep the dog there til performance,
praise.
