We have a 10 year old Lab. He has been our dog since he was 4 months. Lately he has been pooping in the house every day. In the same spot, on my white carpet....grr....
He goes out about 5 in the morning. Then around 7:30 in the morning. Then we let him out when we come home around 5pm...at his leisure. He is free to go in and out any time he wants and no spot in the house is off limits.
This has never been a problem for him before. He has always been good about holding it during the day while we are at work.
We switched his food to a healthy diet about 4-5 months ago... the pooping just started 2 weeks ago...so I am not convinced it's related.
I don't want to spank him or shove his face in it like some suggest to do. If he has ever gone in the house, we always knew it truly was an accident. But now, he is going in the same spot...every day...and always poo. I can hardly take it any more...it's gross.
Today I put him in the laundry room to segregate him from the rest of the house....and he poo'd. How a dog poo's on the side of a wall...I may never know.
I just don't know what to do. He know's it's bad, it's written all over his face when we come home, but he won't stop.
