Train him the appropriate location on-leash & praise for a "job well done". Any accidents outside that location, take your dog on-leash, pick up the droppings & move them to the correct location & praise again. Leave one or two "examples" for him to remember the location.

They hate perfume and disinfectant. Actually the alcohol that is used to carry the active ingredients irritates their nose. Definitey take KatznK9's advice and on top of that, use an enzymatic cleaner to remove the smell so Bruno won't remember so easily where he went last time. You miught try spraying the areas with something like "Lysol" that he won't like but it is not a guarantee.

Skunkstripe, I'm really afraid of products like Lysol. I don't know about dogs but Lysol around cats is a big No-No. I tried to look on the Lysol site for the toxic ingredient (I forget) that I've been warned against for cats but didn't find a spot where the ingredients are listed. I have no knowledge of toxicity as respects dogs though (or even "how toxic" it is to cats after the product has dried).

Colbi hates the smell of perfume, air fresheners, etc.

Hopefully your solution will work.

Collecting the poop and putting it where you want him to go is defeating your purpose.

The reason many dogs develop the habit of pooping all over the place is because they don't want to risk stepping in old poop any more than humans do.

As Katz suggested, teach him where to go on leash first. I don't agree with leaving piles there as a reference guide. A dog doesn't need to see piles of poop to understand where he's supposed to go and if he does see them, he'll most likely attempt to avoid them. His nose will keep him informed long before his eyes will once he's learned where his target area is.

Teach him where to go while on the leash as suggested. Clean up the poop immediately and keep the target area clean and poop free. When he squats to poop give him your chosen words to indicate that you want him to poop.

In a short time you'll not only have a dog that poops in a desired area but also one that will poop on command. Having a dog that will poop on command is invaluable tool just before you have to take them somewhere that a pooping dog might be frowned on.

Really? I solved my "bad garbage" problem by spraying our trash with it to keep a certain redhead from sticking her snout into it all the time. I think it ruined the smell for her.
I have a can of the stuff so here are the ingredients:
  • 0.1 % Alkyl Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Saccharinate
  • 79.0 % ethanol
  • 20.9 % "inert ingredients" (whatever those are )
I suspect it is the first one that is where the action is.

Anyhow howldaloom, Fairy isn't going to get rid of the smell. It might cover it for your nose but not his. You need special cleaner that gets rid of the smell otherwise I think you are wasting your time and effort.

I don't know about those "inert ingredients" but if phenols are part of those inert ingredients, that's what it is. I went next door to granny's house to look at her can of Lysol & expected to see phenols on the label. Not sure if they've changed the formula or what ingredient it is now but that's what I was thinking the ingredient was when I posted that originally. I haven't used Lysol products because of that since the early 1980s.

I do suspect that once it has dried, it isn't as toxic unless they eat it & then I suspect the toxcitiy is in direct correlation with weight &/or sensitivity. I just thought I should put that out there in case there was reason to use extra caution. I'm probably overly cautious about chemicals but I say better safe than sorry.

I don't think phenols are inert by anybody's standards, but here is more info than you ever wanted about Lysol...

All other chemical contents are lumped together as “inert

honestly it sounds to me a little like the Swiffer hoax, but each to his own. I am not big on household chemicals myself and only use Lysol for spraying my exercise mat in the weight room (and the garbage to make it smell bad ) .
