Separate them. Define "never home" Go out with them when you are home.

I would take your dog for a walk by himself. That always gets things going for mine.

Morning poop is usually pretty guaranteed... Feed the dogs, let them out, and let them sniff around a bit. That's usually when I get my dogs' stool samples.

Mairano ate a purple crayola crayon when he was 14 weeks... not dark purple either, more like lilac? He had very festive poops for the next 48 hours or so. He was other-wise A-Ok...

Toby loves sweetcorn kernals, however, whenever he eats it, it pretty much comes out in the same condition it went in, which means I can always tell where he has been to the toilet as opposed to any other dogs.
If you simply mix a quarter to half a can of kernals in with his meat and wait you will the next day have no problems identifying which poop is your boys and which belongs to the other dogs.
This will only work if you make sure none of the other dogs eat the sweetcorn laced food. If they do, then you could end up taking in the wrong sample.
By the way, sweetcorn kernals are not harmful to dogs in any way, so I would be more inclined to feed this than a coloured crayon.

I agree with going for a morning walk, you should be able to collect a sample pretty easy that way.

Holier Than Now
Or you can just have the vet's office collect a sample directly, with a loop, once you get to the office.

Einstien just got into the crayon box the other day. He had confetti poop for 2 days. Pink, red, white, green, blue, yellow it was all there.
