    DefaultShe'll pee outside then poop in the floor 20min later

    Is it because I give her a treat and praise after peeing? Should I stand there with her on a leash until she poops? I haven't because it could be a long wait; long enough for her to forget the reason for being outside.

    Is your pup crate trained?

    I wouldn't stand around waiting for her to poop because she probably won't go. Instead I would walk around your yard and encourage some movement.

    Is she on a schedule? If you keep them on a pretty regular schedule they're not only happier and more secure, but you've got a better chance of knowing her poop schedule. Then you can be alert for when she'll need longer potty breaks.

    Like Trickster said, more movement usually helps.

    Don't stand there...walk her around and also tell her to "go potty" or "go poop" Then praise, "good potty". Is she doesn't poo when you take her out. Put her in the crate for 10 minutes and try again. Get her on a schedule.

    Make sure you allow for ample time between #1 and #2. Allie will go #1 almost immediately, but #2 takes her 5 mins outside of finding the perfect spot and actually deciding that she should go. If nothing after 5 mins, go back in side. Remember #2 usually occurs within 1 hour after a feeding time, if you dont provide the time then, your puppies schedule will feel random to you. Feed, wait 10 mins, go outside and try to get both #1 and #2. The first few times, you might have to wait a long time, but once you get the schedule, your good to go... There are other threads on this issue, might want to look at them, they could be on page 2.

    I have found that Zora is just like my 4 & 6 year old daughters; she will pee, then want to go inside, but I continue to walk her around and eventually, she poops, maybe 5 minutes later. My girls, when were out, I take them to bathroom, they say "no, I don't have to go", I force the issue and say, just try, out it comes!!!!

    where were you when she peed? If you are not supervising her 100% in the crate she goes until you can. Then you'll start picking up on her signals.

    You're right. I wasn't supervising her 100%. I didn't pick up any signals because I was making lunch. How long does it take before she barks or does something besides just squat in the floor? I'm single and I have to go back to work soon. I don't want her to stay in her crate while I'm at work and asleep. That's no kind of home for a dog, but I am losing my mind.
