Puppy Will Not Poop on Training Pads

Mattie uses her pad to pee, but refuses to use it to do do. What is the answer? She is a very excited animal and seems to do the do do bit for spite, when she doesn't get her own way. She is a miniature Schnauzer. She is 8 months old and a very lovable and good companion.

Perhaps try having a second pad for the poopy in a separate spot? My thought would be to not put it down until she has pooped once and then put that poopy on it as a hint that this is her poopy pad?

Oh and once she realizes it's for pooping be sure and keep the poop picked up because poochies don't like to step on their poop any more than humans do ;-)

This may be because dogs like to turn a lot before picking a spot. My dog did the same thing. We put down a larger area of pee pads and as she became use to it we removed them one at a time until she could hit her target. However, we still had to always keep two down at all times, because even though she is a small dog, she makes big turns before picking her spot.

This sounds nasty and it is hard to do but when your puppy continues to keep pooping anywhere he/she likes, dab her nose in it and immediatley place her on her puppy pad wiping her nose on the pad then after 2 minutes clean her nose with a dog wipe it sounds cruel i know but believe me its pretty much the only thing that works i only had to do it 3 times and shes NEVER EVER poopd anywhere else apart from her pad. Hope this helps and stick with it!!

It definitely is the wrong way to train a dog where to potty! Rubbing a dogs nose in their feces is teaching the dog not to trust you or let you catch them at doing something wrong. Patience and positive rewards are the appropriate way to train a dog!
