My Dingo/Shepherd (about 9 months old) recently began pooping in the house when we leave if he's not crated. He did well for awhile and now this. What should we do?
He seems to "go" in the same spot as well. How do we break this gross habit of his?

- Cast your vote for which answer you think is best!
You are the one who is "inconveniencing" the animal, so, make a "Wrong" a "Right" !
Put paper or a Pad down where the animal potties.
If it misses, place/move the material to the pad.
Clean/descent the "wrong' area.
When it gets it right, praise highly.
If you want, start moving the Pad to a more convenient location...SLOWLY.
Since you don't/aren't there to allow potty privileges, then create an acceptable place for that.

I do not recommend a potty pad at all. If you are not there crate him. If you are there take him out consistently, every hour if you have to. That one spot needs to be cleaned with enzymatic cleaner such as nature's miracle. You could even stick something to block him off from that spot.
