Training a Dog to Poop in One Spot

My husband and I have an older female Dachshund, who is his heart. And any time anyone complains about his dog, he goes ballistic. Anyway, this dog is constantly pooping right near my car, usually on the driver's side. No matter where I park in the yard, she will poop right beside my car.


It is dark when I leave home in the mornings to head to work, so I cannot see where I am stepping, although, I try to be very careful because I know there are "land mines" somewhere, and 90% of the time, I end up stepping in it. It never fails. I have thought about putting out moth balls where I normally park to deter her from pooping in that area. She is a hound breed and I know her nose is very sensitive.

I cannot keep ruining my shoes and the floor board of my car from this. I am at my wits end to the point of telling my husband it's either me or the dog. If you know of another deterrent or something, please share I am desperate!

Sprinkle granules in that spot to deter the dog. Odors dogs do not like are citrus, mothballs, vinegar, garlic and pepper.


Put rosemary around the spot or thorny rose plants in that area.

Motion activated sprinkler would also deter him.

Repellants are sold at dog stores and work well. Dogs hate eucalyptus and tea tree oil.

If you want to try something natural, here's a product called "I Must Garden Dog and Cat Repellent". It is environmentally responsible.

Make sure the bathroom area is cleaned up of old feces. Also, do not give the dog full run of the yard. Use a leash

When you get out of your car each night, have some cloves of garlic with you. Leave them in the area of your car. You can also get some plants for this area to leave them around.


I would also try and get the dog in the backyard to use the toilet and not allow him in the front yard anymore. If you keep him away from where your cars are it is better.

You can also put up a small gated area in your yard that the dog can go outside in. This way it will keep the dog away from where you park your car. I would also tell my husband that you want a gated area for you to put your car in so that his dog will stop going around your car and pooping all the time.
