Why don’t you just walk your dog?

+1 to walking your dog.  Cardio will make ’em poo.

My dog is the same way. She doesn’t like to get dirty and she jumps or walks arounf puddles. lol. Its too funny. I let her out side to use the restroom, but she runs out, then runs right back in because its too cold. But then she poops inside. Even if I stay outside with her, she runs upstairs and waits to go back inside. Then sometimes if I catch het, I have to let her out at like 2am because she needs to go poop. Its better then cleaning it off the floor. I think the best thing is to walk your dog around your neighborhood until he poops. He’ll get use to it. Then reward him after, so he knows its good to go poo poo outside.

@Madi.So.Excited:  I’ve seen them in major pet stores like PetSmart, Petcetera, etc. They are waterproof and warmer in winter. I actually just saw two dogs walking down my street a few days ago wearing them. And they come in a few sizes for different breeds.

@Madi.So.Excited:  My dog too. She usually stands by the door just starring at me. I open the door and she runs out, then comes in when she’s done. But now she is being a brat with the cold weather. lol

Your dog will likely HATE the booties – the dogs I know that can where them had their owners subject them to the booties while they were young puppies.

I agree with previous posters about walking your dog. It is a proven fact that walking gets your dogs bowels moving so I recommend taking him out for a minimum 20 minute walk in the morning and a minimum 20 min walk in the evening (at least 10 minutes after eating) and that should get your dog to give you 2 nice poops a day! And while you are walking him you can walk on the road or sidewalk so that he doesn’t have to go in the mud.

P.S. walking around a yard and going for a walk are two different things and dogs HAVE to go for walks for mental and physical health rain or shine!

@Madi.So.Excited:  Walking around the yard is not the same as a walk.  I’m guessing you don’t walk your dog much?  I walk my dog rain or shine, and he poops like clockwork.   A real walk contributes to a dog’s mental and physical well being and is pretty essential.  I have volunteered at many shelters/rescues and walking a dog regularly should really be part of everyday care for your pet, not something optional.  I’d recommend waking up 15 mins early and just taking your dog for a real walk.  Please don’t think I’m being snarky, I’m just thinking about the wellfare of your pet.

Again I’m going to +1 the walks.  Dogs really enjoy them and it helps with their BMs.

Walking around the yard is a little boring for him.  I can see why he doesn’t like it.  What kind of dog is he? 

Depending on the breed, he might need long walks, long runs, short sprints, etc.

My lab goes on a few mile walk in the morning. Then in the afternoon we play fetch (short sprints), and then at night we just let him out to wander the yard.
