Default Need help with potty training

My puppy is 3 and a half months old and she is really good about using the potty pads to pee but she will go around and poo where ever she wants. I try to put her on the pad 20-30 minutes after she eats but sometimes she doesn't go for a couple hours or she will run off it and poo somewhere else. What can I do to get her to poo on her pad and not all over the house?

Hi Krysto and welcome! I myself am learning so much from this wonderful site. That's a good question and I bet it's been asked many, many times before. I don't know exactly where I've seen it but I recall it being said that one might take the poop and place it on the pad (leaving it there for I don't know how long). I guess it's hopefull that the dog will come to relate the pad with the poop.

I've tried it but maybe I didn't leave it there long enough or Oreo just doesn't make the connection.

There's other members with experience and I'm sure they'll be chiming in with many suggestions.

You know when they are looking for somewhere to go,maybe if you picked her up and put her in her crate (if you have one ),then have a treat ready and if you catch her lots of praise and a treat ?

Try taking a pee pad and putting it in a large rubber made container and putting her in that to see if she will go in that several times a day or when you think she needs to go.
You won't have to hold her & she can't get out. Give her a few minutes and when she poo's or even pees make a big deal or give a treat etc.. Once she has mastered that just switch out the container to a litter box or just the pad.

when i was training max on the pads he would do the same thing. i would bring the poop back to the pad if he did it somewhere else. after awhile i guess he learned n then with my second chi, he potty trained himself, i didn't have to do anything.

You guys make me mad at myself...I don't know what I've done wrong but my lil' man is 2 & he still has accidents much more often then I'd like...more so with poo then pee...he'll pee on his pad but he will not poo on it...luckily I have hardwood floors but it drives me crazy...he's better now then he was even a few months back b/c I have taken it upon myself to make sure I take him out much more often & keep better tabs on him if I realize he's missing...but I swear he'll go outside & pee everywhere then come in a poo later...ugh! My vet says some Wa-Wa's just never fully learn it...I hope your case works out better than mine

Jerry is really good about his toilet habits. Tabitha can be a challenge. When they
first get up in the morning, Jerry goes straight to the litter pan and does all of "his job".
Tabitha will wait until I am out of the room for a while... I have learned to keep her in
the ex-pen for a bit with access to the litter pan. She does not get free access to the
house until she does both "jobs" too. So far, she seems to be getting the idea. But, I have to
monitor her or she will sneak off and go behind a chair or somewhere secretly.
