Default House training frustration with new foster dog Papchi Juliet

Juliet is a new foster dog rescued from the San Bernadino Shelter in Ca and fostered by me through Saving Great Animals. From my understanding she was a stray, and than before coming to me was in boarding. I don't quite have a back story on her though.

I am very confused, and I feel as if I am going to pull my hair out. I also feel like a complete house training newb because she is frustrating the heck out of me. The issue is that she will not poop or pee on the grass. I have to crate train her or keep her with me and watch for signs she needs to go.. AND than here comes the kicker.. If she's desperate she will go on the grass and than back on the porch and than poop on the porch. She also will not pee on the grass either. She pees on the porch too. The other day when taking her out she went on the rocks across from my house..

She has only gone poop on the grass twice and pee very little. I even took her on a long walk and she did not go pee the entire time or poop.

I try to feed her about 10 am, and 3 pm, and then 6 but sometimes I do miss those times. I don't try to feed her after but sometimes she finds food and she will start munching. She seems to always be very hungry.

I feed her a holistic brand of dog food called Earthborn Smalll Breed dog food which she seems to enjoy.

Can someone give me some more hints? The dog is seriously one upping the human!!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

Here's the little 6 lb darling girl though:


And of course with her twin Smudge-



I have house trained over 20 foster dogs pretty successfully so this post makes me feel incredibly stupid.

Thanks!
Thea

I bset this baby wants to 'go' on cement? If she is/was a shelter dog, then that is the material most shelters have. The 'rocks' you mention are the closest to cement in feeling? I don't know if you can make a cement area in your yard.? Other than that, I'd keep her in a exercise pen til she went, then keep that area her potty place. Good luck!

try talking poop from the concrete and put it out on the grass spread out, leave it there a few days. the odor of it will attract them to know its a potty spot. it has worked on 5 of my pups in the past. hope it helps.

We are making strides. Yeehoo! She's made it to peeing and pooping on the grass. She is a stubborn girl, a little set in her ways. She's had a few accidents but only when I am not paying attention to her. It would be great if we were accident free so that she could be house trained by the time she was adopted.

House training of the dog that eliminate outside accidents, and they will reward success. In a better bladder and bowel control in a longer period of the puppies.
