Kodi will, under extreme weather conditions use the litter box to poop, but ONLY if it is pristine. So I have to make sure that I clean out any wet spots immediately. Otherwise, he'll just bark at the door, whine and circle the house, holding it LONG past what is good for him!

We do have a second litter box, that was in his ex-pen when we still used it. We put this in my office with him (along with water, and a chew... his crate is already in there) if we have to be away from home for more than 3 hours or so. But I think he's only used that once in the last year, and that was only to pee. I've thought about putting this second box out on the porch, with a grass mat rather than litter, as a "bad weather poop spot", but haven't actually gotten around to trying it. Last winter (and so far, this winter) we haven't had enough snow that the yard has been an issue. The winter before, there was a 6 week period where the snow was WAY over his head.

I assume you had to have more than one for poop? My guess is they wouldn't poop where the other one had pooped either?

If Kodi DOES poop in his box, every now and then something will "follow" him out. I'm not sure why, but if he just pees in the box, he walks sedately out. If he POOPS in the box, it's like he needs to get away from it as fast as possible. He SPRINGS out of the box, and in the process, often kicks litter (and sometimes poop) out of the box. I've seen him do this often enough that I am sure he's not pooping outside the box... it's what he does afterwards that causes the problem!

THat is normal, I think. Gucci uses pee pads, but will NOT poop on the pad, she won't poo in the same place she pees. You may want to try a separate pad for poop and somehow train that that pad is for poo and the other one for pee.

Gucci poops on a different side of the yard than she pees, and I was talking to a friend who noticed her havs have that same quirk

I'd give up on teaching to poo on the pee pad that she pees on, I have tried for 6 years now and she's stubborn when it comes to that, almost OCD over it..

Bama will do both on piddle pad usually although if there is a recent pee on it she might go next to it. Sometimes she stands on the pad but her butt is not over the pad.

She does do this annoying thing of pooping on the pad, walking away a few steps and then pooping some more. I try and catch her and put her back on the pad but I'm not always right there.

How many times a day is your dog pooping? Bama is maybe 3-4 a day!

I haven't read all the above,so not sure if any one has said this already,but I find with our 2 that they do not like to poop and pee in the same place.Also they prefer to poop in a more sheltered place[down the bottom of the garden behind the above ground pool].If weather is terrible I just put 2 pads down far apart from each other and that seems to work.When Dizzie and Nellie were very young they didn't seem to like pooping when we went out for a walk, they would hang on until we were home and they were able to go in the back garden,almost as if they felt safe there,but as time went on their walks grew longer they relaxed and nature took it's course!

Jude has been on a 70/30 path - 70% outside, the rest. . . so when I can't watch him closely (and when it comes to piddle, close isn't good enough, they're so fast!) I tie my long leash around my waist and he stays with me. I've tried this for the last couple days, and for today, so far so good! I've had it work on other days too, it's just me who gets slack in the training. I posted earlier that he hadn't "found his voice" to go outside. But if he's leashed to me, he lets me know!

I watch Maccabee poop in his litter box and then find poop in his expen, outside he litter box.

Dizzie always poops on the move!He tends to leave a little trail,just as if he wants to get away from it as soon as possible!Then Nellie comes along and has to do a quick pee on it to cover his sent!How lovely!We talk about the best things here on the forum!

At least in Kodi's case, (at least when he's not sick!!!) they are well formed. So it's not much different than finding a tootsie roll on the floor!
