Dog Poops and Wees Inside?

I have a 5 year old male Whippet that constantly poops and wees in the house once he's came back in from outside. Is there anything I can do to try and stop him?

He needs to be put on a strict feeding and walking schedule. Learn the signs when he has to go. Praise him when he goes outside and dont punish him for accidents. He may have to be crated if he has accidents inside

Have you had him checked by the vet? Potty habits, at least in my pups, have, 9 out of 10 times been a health issue. The one time it wasn't, it was because of a change in the household and was deemed stress regression. I had to retrain her with the crate for a few weeks to get her back on track.


The vet was so helpful for all of these.

Post back what you learn! Prayers for the pup

I would keep a potty pad in the house, and keep the dog confined to a small area until he is used to using the potty pad if he cannot wait until he goes outside. When you see him going anywhere but on the potty pad, pick up the dog and say 'Let's go outside and potty' and sound very happy about heading out the door with him.

Also don't leave water out in the evening, a couple of hours before you go to bed and don't feed him in the evening, where he will have to go out.


If the dog is out in the house, it is up to you to catch him if he is going to try to go to the bathroom.

I would also try to have him in the crate when you cannot watch him, while he is in the house. This makes it more pleasurable for him to be in the house, without making mistakes.

If you don't like the crate idea, there is always the idea of keeping a small leash on him while he is inside. Then you can reach him when it is time to go on the many potty trips outside.

Clicker training is a good idea too. When you take him outside, bring some very small (the size of a pea) pieces of hot dogs. When he is outside and goes to the bathroom give him several pieces after he is through doing his business.

If he doesn't go to the bathroom, don't give him a treat. ( I know it is difficult).

Let us know how he is coming along and what works!
