16 Month Old Collie Pooping Inside?


I adopted my dog about 3 months ago and she's always been very good with doing her business outside. She's a Border Collie and 16 months old. Lately, she has being occasionally peeing and pooping quite often inside. It usually happens right after I take her for a walk, but she poops on her walk! And then comes inside and poops again.


This morning she did it on my bed, which she never has before. I just don't know why she's doing this. She's on new meds because she hurt her leg at the dog park, could that be it? She also poops in other peoples houses I bring her to, but I figure that's more of an anxiety thing, due to being in an unfamiliar place. I just don't know why she's pooping all the time in my place, and how to stop it.

Any advice?

Why a dog pee and poops inside.

  1. If there is any change in a dog's routine, diet, medication, or food this can cause your dog to start peeing and pooping inside the home.
  2. Advertisement

  3. You have determined that the dog is taking new meds for an injury, they received at the park.
  4. This could cause the dog to have issues with going outside to do their business.
  5. I would make a phone call to the vet and explain the problem.
  6. Maybe your dog is having an upset stomach from the new medication.
  7. Some medications don't agree with all animals.
  8. If the dog is feeling an upset stomach this will cause the dog to pee and poop more often than normal.
  9. If the dog is hurt from the accident and when it goes out for a walk it is hurting this will stop it from going to the toilet outside. When the dog comes back in he is not so stressed then they will go to the bathroom inside the home.
  10. I would ask the vet if there is a possibility that the medication that he has put your dog on has caused the dog to have an upset stomach. Maybe they can change the dog's medication and this will stop the problem.

The medication could definitely be causing incontinence problems. I would speak to the vet about it. You might have to resort to using a diaper on her until she finishes her medication.

Retrain dog.

Step 1
It could be medicine wait until the medicine is gone.

Step 2
Tether the dog to you as much as you can to see when he has too go the bathroom.


Step 3
Carry treats on you give only when he goes outside to the bathroom.

Step 4
Praise him and play for a few minutes.

Step 5
The more times you get a chance to praise him the faster he should catch on.
