    Pooping!

    Max is 4 months old now. Potty training wise he is doing really well, holds it all night and during the day he is good too, I’m home most of the day so that’s probably why he isn’t having accidents and when I do leave it isn’t for very long or I take him with me EXCEPT in the am I go running for about 30-60 min. Before I go running he has an hour from the time we wake up to the time I leave for the run to pee and poo and before I head out the door I take him out to pee, but when I get back from my run, he always leaves me a nice little poop surprise in the house. I figured that hour from wake up to when I leave is plenty of time for him to poop, in fact I would think he would have to after holding it all night. Will he grow out of this? How can I get him not to poop in the house when I run? This is the only time of day he does this, otherwise no accidents. Thanks in advance.

    Did you see him doing a poo during that time.

    Not before I go run, I always assumed he pooped when we woke up or sometime after, I leave the slider open for the dogs while I’m having my tea. I only see him pee before we run.

    Ah so Vee, you are thinking he could have pooped before she leaves for her run ! ?

    CaroleC, Malka and Chris B like this.
    It could be that he is not going before you leave.
    You need to stay out with him and wait for him to poop, (keep him on lead if need be) with my pups, the peeing always was quick, but there was a lot of walking around and finding just the right spot before the pooping, getting them walking, even taking him for a little walk can help get things moving and definitely shortly after eating is prime time for them needing to empty.
