it happens every few days. Today I walked her outside in the morning at 7 am, she pooped, I fed her and then she pooped again in the house like an hour later. Why would she do this? Why isn't she completely emptying her bowels?


Should I wake up, feed her, give her water and then walk her? Would that help her completely empty her bowels?


Another weird thing is she never wants treats after she poops outside. I try to give it to her and I almost have to force it. She never wants to take the treat. Usually she loves the same treats with anything else (She wants it after every time she pees)


Any ideas? Also weird is she never ever ever pees in the house. She can hold it for like 10 hours. Do you guys think because she's pooped in certain places in the house, she now smells it and wants to refresh it? how can I completely destroy the smell of her poop in that area? She's pooped in all carpet areas

I think you have a case of bad timing. You need to do what you are doing BUT add taking her out AGAIN after she eats. Many dogs need to go again after eating. The object is to make her successful by getting her out before she can poop in the house.

As to treats after pooping.. she may simply not care OR (as likely) she may need a much higher value treat such as Roast Beef or Cooked Chicken. Something super good.

It has been my experience that some bully breed dogs are hard to housebreak. Let's hope yours is more a case of bad timing.

what about feeding her and then taking her out 20 minutes later?


I can put her back in the exercise pen, she never poops in there
