How many #2's each day?

Hi all,

Eloise is almost 6 months!! If I had my camera, I would attach a recent picture. Her coloring is changing beautifully. Anywho...

I am wondering how many times your dogs go poo in a day. Eloise has been going ~3 times a day, sometimes 4. She will either have one tiny poo in the middle of the night or right in the morning and then a larger poo later, but still before breakfast. She has these little poos and then larger ones. I have learned to stand completely still while she is pooing because if I move she stops. Oh, she uses an Ugodog but also will go outside during walks.

I have started to keep track and hopefully that will shed some light.

She gets breakfast and dinner at the same time everyday and a partial kong with pb when I leave. She has also been doing swimmingly with training, so her treats are decreasing. Could the treats and pb be why she is going #2 so much?

Thanks for any responses!

It depends on what you are feeding Eloise. The more grain the more they poo. But I have found over the years that it takes a couple of years for them to only go once a day. Even the big dogs usually only go once a day if fed a high quality food. Rosie usually goes the last thing before bedtime.

It depends on what you are feeding Eloise. If the food is mostly grain, she will go more. But shee is still young. I have found over the years with big and little dogs that they are aroun 2 before they only go once a day. Course it does depend on a high quality food. Some foods will g right through them.

not sure. Tillie goes 2-3 times a day normally and she is completely grain free.

Kodi normlly goes twice a day. Every once in a while, he'll go a third time, especially if he has been running a lot on a hike. Conversely, if he has been sitting around a lot on a rainy day, he sometimes skips the afternoon/evening poop. He ALWAYS poops right after breakfast.

Brody will be 2 in February and he goes 3 times and sometimes 4 (and as a puppy he went even more often than that!). I can never figure out how on earth he needs to go at bed time and then again first thing in the morning. His kibble is grain free.

I keep telling him to feel free to give up a poop or two, but so far he isn't listening.

Less poos with grain free doesn't hold true at our house. Finn is grain free and goes 2-4 times a day, usually 3. Augie is not on grain free and he goes twice a day usually, sometimes 3, but not often. Finn is 2.5 yrs. Augie is 4.

Oops!! - Finn is 1.5 - 20 months actually. Wow, they get old fast enough without me adding years on them!
