Why Do Dogs Poop in the House?

Dogs poop in the house for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons include: Inappropriate potty training.


If your dog was not properly potty trained as a puppy, start by taking them outside to the same spot every few hours. Praise them when they go to the bathroom outside.

How to Stop?

Mistakes to Avoid

Be patient. It may take some time to stop your dog from pooping in the house, so be patient and consistent with your training. Be positive.

Tips for Success

Understand that medical conditions like gastrointestinal problems, urinary tract infections, or digestive disorders can cause dogs to poop indoors.
