Do you scold a dog for pooping in the house?

You can’t scold away pooping indoors, you have to reward pooping outside. Also, at a young age, have some tolerance — they’re still pups. Don’t scold them for the poop on the floor unless you can catch them IN THE ACT, otherwise they won’t know that you’re mad at the act, they’ll think you’re mad that its on the floor.

How do you punish a dog to go potty in the house?

Here’s what to do when that happens:

  • Interrupt your puppy when you catch them in the act.

  • Don’t punish your puppy for eliminating in the house.
  • Clean the soiled area thoroughly.

Why does my dog still poop in the house?

Dogs that are fully housetrained may suddenly start soiling in the house due to medical conditions or due to stress and anxiety. If medical conditions are ruled out, examine whether you have recently moved, changed schedules, or are leaving your dog at home for a longer period of time than he is accustomed to.
