House Trained Puppy Pooping in New House

I have a 6 month old female brindle Pit Bull, she just moved in about 3 days ago and was previously housebroken. She has been pooping in the house and I'm unsure of what to do. We don't have a crate for her, but she sleeps in the laundry room on a comforter. Please help!

It most likely is the stress that comes with being in a new home and having new expectations. It is also probably due to seperation anxiety and such. It is such a new experience.

I would make housetraining a game, and a positive experience. I would take the little one out and say a word you want him to associate with going to do his business. I use the words " Lets go Potty!"


Take him out with a happy voice, and go out with him at these times:

When waking up out of any nap
When waking up for the day.
After the first sniff of the floor or turning around on the floor
Any time he looks like he is ready to go.

Here is a great resource for training these darling doggies:

Have fun with your baby! I love hearing from people who have Pits and how it is going with them~ I have lots of stories from when I was able to foster, which I am not anymore.
