Dog Poops A Lot on Walks to Park?

I have a question about my dog. He is 1 1/2 years old. Recently I stared taking him for a walk to the park and as soon as I get there he starts pooping everywhere non stop. It is so embarrassing because we are walking and he stops and poops so I have to stop over time and clean his necessities. Is this bad? This is my first dog ever. Also most of the time he is in the house by himself because I am always in school or at work. Is it maybe that going to the park is new to him and he does not know how to react?

I would be interested to know why you own a dog when you work and go to school. Dogs are social creatures and require the company of humans and other animals. Putting a dog in a house all day alone will cause problems for the animal that can't be fixed later.

They also require exercise. A high energy dog like a labrador, Dalmatian or German Shepherd requires at least two half-hour walks per day. A low-energy dog like an English Bulldog or Chow requires about a half hour walk per day. This not only removes nervous energy, it does several other things as well.


First, it bonds the dog with the owner. In the wild, dogs travel in a pack led by the pack leader. Second, this walk proves to the dog that you are confident in the outside world, therefore the dog has nothing to worry about. Third, it shows the dog the boundaries of his territory.

Your dog is very anxious about the outdoors. He doesn't think he can trust you if something goes wrong. That makes sense considering you are so rarely there.

I would reconsider owning a dog at this time.

Exercise & pooping can go hand in hand. It is excellent that you now find the time to exercise the dog. It may be that it hangs on until you get home from work. I don't see that it's a problem that he poops outside - this is a good thing.


Please keep up the exercise for your dogs sake as it is so important for it's mental and overall health.
