Are you getting tired of getting up in the morning to the smell of fresh puppy poop? Or maybe, you have had enough of stepping in a nice cold pile of poop in the middle of the night. No matter how you look at it, there is no reason for your pup to be leaving you with these little "love packages." However, it's up to you to take the time to teach him that this kind of behavior is not acceptable in much the same manner as his den mother would in the wild.
Your job as a responsible pet owner is to take the place of your Rottie's den mother in teaching him that pooping in the house is not allowed. His mom wouldn't allow it, so why should you? The idea behind teaching your pup to poop outside is not only to teach him this is the only place he is allowed to poop, but he needs to learn to let you know he needs to go. The whole process will take several weeks to accomplish, but stick with the training and remember to use plenty of treats and praise to let your little fuzzball know when he is doing a good job.
Of all the things you could possibly need when training your Rottie that the only place to go poop is outside, the most important of these are patience and plenty of time to work with him. Beyond this, you need a few supplies, including:
The rest is all in your hands. The more consistent you are in working with your dog, the faster he will master this important life skill.
