Unhappy Getting your puppy to poop on command?

Any suggestions? My puppy, Lovie doesn't poop for hours after she eats. Ex: She ate dinner at 5pm. She still hasn't pooped. She will more than likely poop at 3am..

Any suggestions. This is hard for me in the morning as well, b/c I know she is ready to poop in the middle of the day and I'm at work and she's in her crate. I do have a pet nanny as well as I come let her out 1/2 into my day each day but still.

Some dogs just have slower metabolisms than others.

My guys go on command. I guess how I did was everytime they eliminated, I'd say, "Did Hades go poop! Good poop! Good Boy! Treatsies!" LOL

It's just conditioning. Everytime we go out and I poop, mommy says, "Good poop" and I get a treat.

As said... each pup is different... I started go squat and good squat when pups were starting to be fed puppy food and papers were spread out...knowing that they would go within 5 mins. I'd encourage and praise. I did the same with pee .... Eventually this ,with my dogs was sguat and big squat....they were so easy to train , they understood the difference.

I wouldn't call it on command, however Tugger for the most part goes "poop" 3 times a day....in the AM when we first take him out....at 5:30PM and again around 9:30PM. Like your pup, he doesn't poop 20 minutes after eating....it could either be hours--or just before he eats (which is typically at night these days). He has been only eating once a day between 4:30PM and 6PM and this has made it easy on us to leave him out of the crate now while we're at work because we know he won't need to poop. Tugger will "pee" on command (especially since I only have a 1/2 hour for lunch.....he's used to being zipped in and out of the house!)...most especially if he wants to go in the car for a ride! We tell him he can't go until he "pees".....

Who every said dogs don't know human language?!?!?!?

I'm using "Go Teetee" and "Go poop" for Lovie. But I sometimes think she's not getting the commands. I have a 2 story house and she's so small that I think when we are upstairs she doesn't understand that the door is downstairs. We had another accident this am (poop) in my room upstairs. She had just pooped outside too. 2 in a row..
I think I'm looking for overnight results. How long was it until your dogs were "almost potty trained"?

Bailey poops and pee's on command.
I done the same as the others, when he was a puppy i would tell him "go poo poo's" or go "wee wee's" and when he did i would say "Good boy for pooping-wee wee's Bailey" and then reward.
I live in an apartment, so Bailey also had to learn not to Poop or Pee in the House at all and understand that he had to ask to go outside. He started telling me that he needed to go out when he was around 1 year old, other than that it was judgement on my part.

I would say that by 5-6 months he was completely housebroken.

I would take him outside after everytime he woke up or had eaten, drunk ETC, around 10 times a day to begin with and then just worked it down to 4 that he goes out now (or more if he asks in between).

Pretty much the same stuff here, there is no overnight fix, if your pup isn't right with you,crate her so she can't do poops in the house, Tink is 3 1/2 months,and about 95% reliable, but I do watch carefully and try to time when I know she has to go,other than that most of the time she sits by the door and looks at me meaningfully... so I get her out,and she goes! From the start, I'd say,'go peepee' for both kinds, just means 'go' no matter what kind... she now pees on command,if she has to,she knows those words mean do it! She's really pretty good about it

By 8 months, Tugger has been completely trained. We did the crate training thing and it works! (And although my husband objected at first-he'll now agree it was the easiest thing we ever did!) Also learned that you take them out in hours by their age...so at one month, it was every hour, 2 months every two, 3 months every three...so that he also learned control. By 4 months, Tuggers slept through the night (from 10:30PM-4:30AM when we awoke)...so we knew he could hold it and he would only beg to come out of the crate if he needed to do business. And, btw....we took him outside every time he came out of the crate--no exceptions.

Once he reached the 7 month stage, we have kept him out of the crate during the day while we were at work because I can come home for lunch and take him out. He's perfect in the house--although we still gate him off in our large kitchen (he may be potty trained, but he's not chewing trained yet!). Anyhow...now, he lets us know either by standing at the door or if its in the middle of the night, he nudges us to go out and pee. He still bites when he needs to poop (which we STILL can't get him to overcome!). But he's virtually house trained now....

I don't know if this is possible or Riley just REALLY has to go pee/poo but when I take him out and say the command he gets right to business. I've only had him for about a week and I hope he actually understands! Just whenever he goes in the right spot, praise him. Also, try bringing a leash because they try to run off and play.

Im trying with the "hurry up" command.
When I take him out, I repeat those words over and over, even while he is going......then he gets treats.
Im hoping the words hurry up will take effect by the time our cold canadian winter hits.
When we go out for potty duty, I immediately take him to his spot.....and keep returning him there when he wanders to far from it.
When he goes and Im giving him his treat, I repeat "good hurry up" "good dog hurry up"

I hope it works, cuz it gets mighty cold here in the winter.
