How To Teach Your Dog To Poop In The Right Spot

By Leslie Moore

Aside from being an eye sore a poop in the wrong part of the house will cause a foul smell especially if your humble abode is air-conditioned. Wastes can also cause accidents in case that it has been stepped upon or a curious and innocent baby tried to touch and eat it. This may sound disgusting but it is possible to happen. To prevent such incidents, it would be better if the dog is trained to relieve himself on the right place. This kind of training could last for weeks and while the transition is taking place, you would have to be patient whenever the dog makes a mistake and pooped again on the wrong place.

Stopping your Dog from Defecating on the Wrong Places

Before you can train them to poop in the right place, you must make them unlearn the habit of pooping on the wrong places of the house. Dogs always leave their mess on dry places and it can be on rugs, mats, tiled floor and concrete. It is fine to scold a dog if they relieved themselves on the wrong place if you caught them red-handed. Avoid yelling at your dog if you didn’t catch him while doing it on the wrong spot as they won’t understand what you trying to say.

A dog repellent can erase the mark and odor of their waste from the previous place where they have defecated. This could prevent them from doing it again on the same wrong spot. Apply it after every 24 hours to build a sanctuary against the dog’s waste. Check whether they are looking uncomfortable and sniffing around. This could indicate an upcoming bomb and that it might land inside your house at any moment. Once they have shown these signs, take them to the right pooping place immediately.

Showing the Right Place

Here comes the process of marking the spot or area where the dog can land the bomb. First, you have to decide whether you will be making a poop box for the dog or you will fence an area which will serve as the dog’s bathroom. After you have designed or allocated an area for your dog, the next thing that you need to learn is on how you can associate a command with the process of eliminating wastes. Think of a catchy word or phrase such as “release”, “Kraken”, “do it”, “drop it”, “fire” or “go potty”. If it’s time for the dog to defecate, bring him to the place and utter the word like you are commanding them. If they do what you are expecting them to do, give praises and rewards. Do this regularly and make sure that you are only using one kind of command.

Another easy method of teaching your pet on where to defecate is by leashing him and bringing him to the allocated space outdoors. Be it a fenced area or a soiled box, make sure that it is dry as dogs hate to drop their waste on wet places. Leave them leashed from a post for a while until they have released what they have to release. Once they do, provide a treat and praise and do this regularly until they have totally put it into habit. This lesson teaches the dog that they would have to defecate first on the right spot before they can join their masters inside the house.
