The Poop Stops Here!

Dear Bailey,

Please Help!!  I am the owner of a 4 year old Miniature Pinscher.
Our puppies are kenneled while we are away at work. We have been doing this for years, but in the last month our puppy, Whimpy, has started to poop in her kennel.

I can't think of anything that has changed that would cause this sudden change in behavior. Any advice?

Sue McDonald

Bailey's Reply:

Dear Sue,

If you haven't changed anything in your dog's environment, and you're sure that your dogs are getting out with enough frequency to eliminate when they need to go, then you only have one option:

Get your dog to the vet!

Often, when dogs show a change in behavior or demeanor, it has something to do with a physiological change. It would be wise to take a stool sample with you so it can be analyzed to determine if there is a physical reason for your dog's in-crate elimination.
