Our pup, Tess, is almost three months old and has been with us for just over two weeks. She is settling in really well and, after a few days of pure hell, will finally go to sleep at night (albeit after ten minutes or so of barking). The people we bought her from were not feeding her at regular times. Instead, they left out a pile of biscuits that all dogs could help themselves to throughout the day. They were also feeding her adult biscuits. Needless to say, we have changed this! She is now getting two meals of puppy food each day. We are doing two meals as that's what seems to work best for her. She will normally wee within ten minutes of eating. Pooing, however, is not as easy to predict. Last night, for example, she was fed at 6.30pm. By the time we went to bed at 11.30pm she still had not been and was showing no signs of needing to go. She ended up waking us at 3am to be let out. This isn't unusual for her - hours and hours between food and poop and there doesn't seem to be any consistency. Daytimes are exactly the same. Fed at 6.30am - can ake hours to poop. I usually work from home so I am here to watch her. Some days, however, I need to go into the office in the morning. I don't want to encourage her to poo inside or to put her in the position where she needs to go in her 'den' but it's really hard when her bowels seem to be a law into themselves! One time she does seem to poo - each and every time - is when she is left alone. This morning, for example, I took her outside. Nothing. Came in and left her downstairs while I went upstairs for less than two minutes. Came back to a little present. took her outside again and then cleaned up the mess. Realised we were out of kitchen towel so I went to our garage to get some more. I have to go out of the house to do this. Again, away for less than a minute. Came back, another poo. I know everybody says dogs don't poo inside out of spite but this does seem suspicious to me! Just wondering if other people's puppies are more 'regular' when it comes to pooing? When we are here she is very good at telling one of us if she needs to go out. Foodwise - she has James Wellbeloved turkey and rice puppy kibble (previous owners were feeding her the adult version of this). We mix it with some NatureDiet meat as this encourages her to eat it in one sitting, rather than picking at her biscuits like she used to. Treats - she has some puppy milk bones and some meaty treats. We don't give her many at all as she is more motivated by fuss and cuddles. Her absolute favourite treat is raw carrot. Also great as it keeps her occupied! Her poos are always solid (although not so solid that we worry about her being constipated - they're normal).
