4 Year Old Dog Started Pooping Inside?

dogs on the beachFor the past 4 days, our 4 year old female terrier cross has been pooping inside, when the door to go outside has been open. She has been trained to do her business outside from 4 months of age, my dad is close to getting rid of our family pet. Does anyone have any ideas what may be wrong? We haven't moved houses in over a year, though they don't get out regularly due to me being in school, my dad working, and my brother is in college from 8:40 am to 3:30pm. She has different food every week, but the same brand. My Border Collie is fine, he'll go outside, but she will do it when no one is looking or they're out of the room. Please help!

I'd get her checked by your vet first to rule out anything physical, then he may have some advice.I hope no-one shouts or hits her, something is obviously upsetting her badly and that will only make it worse. Are they used to being left all day or is this a recent thing? Dogs don't understand that you''ll be back later. Give her lots of love when you're there. Sorry I can't be more help.

This is a tough one because you don't have a lot of control over what is going on. Can you be sure she gets out whenever you are home? Perhaps you can take her out yourself and play with her for awhile. Or your brother could see that she gets out when he 1st gets home.

She should be able to wait between 8am and 3:30pm. Sometimes dogs just prefer to go in the house because they don't like going out in the rain. If someone goes with her she may stay longer and get the job done. Good luck. You sound like a great pet owner.
