Oh, Nicole, many of us feel your pain. In reading all the poop threads over the years, it seems there are two tracks. Those who get a signal that the pup has to go out and those who are on a strict feeding/eliminating schedule. Lola is in the first, but basically I know her timing. Yesterday I was working on the phone at my desk from 6AM-10AM and she started agitating, so I held her on my lap for the last hour. When I got off the phone, I took her out, no poop! And sure enough, later that morning - poop in the dining room. First time (not SA related) in months. She is 2 1/2. I think the strict schedule people may have the answer, feeding and going out at the same times every day. But I doubt I could be consistent that way. So I am a slave to my Princess Pee and Poop.
It is worth it to set things up so you can catch Izzo in the act and correct the behavior when it happens. Otherwise you are at a loss for behavior modification.
