My puppy prefers to poop in his room? How to stop it?

My 6 month old dobby prefers to poop in his room. We put him in room to sleep with a crate inside. During day he would spend time outside of his room. What I realise is that he prefers to poop, only poop and not pee, in his room. He is pee potty trained but not poop potty train? Can anyone give me suggestion how to correct this behaviour?

Sounds just like Mr. Business 5 years ago

He was a true challenge ! Wife said it was because he was a boy and a slower learner

We would take him out - he would pee , then run into the house a hundred miles an hour - run under the dinning room table and drop a duce ! Boy was my wife NOT happy with him as I was in the fall harvest mode and was not home to help her with him . Oh what memories your question here bring back

But to answer your question , at that time also was we did not let Ali and Mr. Business out together - They would get to playing ruff and He had his ears posted and didn't want to chance a problem there , I did start letting them out together and of course , Ali would do her deal and he picked up on that and started to go outside .

To me - this is a tuff call , as Mr. B would let us know he had to go outside - yet got confused on just what to do and where , I took him out on a lead and would walk him ad walk him , this just did not help with him , as he would head back under the table and poop again there , I think once they go inside it makes that much harder to correct .

I know this has not much help , but I would just keep working with him , be patient with him and he will get it .

Sorry for not much help here and best of luck

Doc

Are you supervising him? Puppies need 100% supervision all of the time while you're potty training. I can't tell from your post if you are leaving him in "his room" alone? If so, I wouldn't expect him to understand not to potty yet...he's a baby.

I am supervising him most of the time. But he really is one tricky pup. Every time I think he is not gonna poop, like 3-5 hours after eating, I would look away one minute and he’d be pooping in him room

Genta - There is your problem = Most times and that is all it takes - that quick minute - oh yeah ! Your 100% right ! They are tricky , lol

You said he has his crate in another room - can you move it to where you stay all the time ? Or just shut the door to that room and then see what he does ?

Now Mr. B's crate was with us and we were always with him , yet for what reason he thought he had go under the table .

Like MC said - you have to be with them all the time - supervising .

Good luck

This sticky on housebreaking is a good read: https://www.dobermantalk.com/puppy-c...king-help.html

With puppies, you really need 100% supervision until they are totally housebroken. I'd recommend you crate or tether your puppy all the time. When you set them up to succeed by watching them ALL the time, you'll prevent mistakes from happening. Read through the sticky thread. If you make sure he can't make a mistake you'll be on the road to success.
