Default Funny poop problem

Of course, one of my very first posts here have to do with poop. Oh well...such is the life of a puppy owner. I have a 4.5 month old Shi-Lhasa and we are currently paper training him in our sun room. It's going fine indoors. He poops and pees when he goes into the sunroom pretty consistently. The problem is when he goes out for walks. I always let Charlie go on the newspaper first then take him for his walk (that way he associates his bathroom with the paper). But, without fail, he will ALWAYS have a bowel movement with very soft and stinky stook on the sidewalk and he will pee on grass. I don't want to confuse the poor guy. Does anyone know why he may be doing this? His poops inside are "normal" (firm and dark).

well personally,IMO I dont like the whole puppy pad and paper training method, it in the long run confuses the guys, and makes them think it is ok to go inside.. And as far as the loose stool.. I am not quite sure why that would happen right off hand, I would have to look into that..

Hi don't know whether its a male thing or not but my boy does the same , only does about 3 more LOl. I put it down to being a scenting thing. , at that age i would want my pup toilet trained.I agree you seem to be confusing him.

Thanks for the advice. I think I may have to quickly switch over to outdoor training Charlie. I was trying to be lazy. The thought of going out in the pouring rain/snow wasn't very appealing to me.

Sorry I did not take time to read others replies but when anybody is exercising they poop more often looser. He goes more normal at home lounging. If anybody else said this they are most correct, exercise is to help make the kidneys work as well as the bowels, be happy it goes on grass. Many wait till they get home to do it all. This is a good puppy and is doing just fine for you honey, so keep him walking fine summer or fall evenings go out and let him relieve good for the night. Feed last feeding about four p.m. lift the water dish at six p.m, he will do fine all night long very soon without any help. Bless him and you also.
