Warning - Grossness!

Just wondering how many times your doodles poop in a day. Sam has been pretty regular, pooping at least 4 times a day. Once when he first wakes up, after breakfast, just before dinner, and then after dinner.

Lately, I've noticed this regularity has been becoming lass regular. Last week, he missed his before dinner poop and pooped in his crate over night. He'd pooped after dinner.

Imagine his distress (and mine), having pooped all over his crate at around 3.00am.

So are your doodles regular poopers and how often do they poop? :oops:

i would say if he pooped in his crate, he really couldnt help it. Dogs will not usually poop where they sleep. That last outing for poops make sure he goes. I have a pup that poops up to 5 times a day but never in his crate. My 2 yr old is a 2 times a day pooper!

Poor Sam, I bet he felt bad about going in Kennel - musta really had to go :cry:
Has Sam's activity level or schedule changed or feeding schedule changed?

The poor little dear was a tad distressed. He's never pooped in his crate before. That's why it came as such a surprise. Feeding schedule hasn't changed. Weather's been really really hot. Not sure if that affected his pooping.

I don't remember Dex's pooping changing last summer, but the heat really seems to effect them so I wouldn't be surprised. Make sure he is getting lots of fluids :)

P.S. Our doodles normally poop 2-3x per day.

Pixie is pretty regular. I can count on a poop first thing in the morning, again around lunchtime, and again late afternoon/early evening. She'll vary from that now and then, but it's definitely a routine. She is eating mid-morning, and again around 5pm.

Poor Sam! It can be traumatic to poop in your crate. :(

Dante would poop 5x a day but as he has grown and matured he is down to 2-3x and it is much firmer. Food hasn't changed so I assume it's his system maturing. I do remember going through 1 night when he went and pooped in the hallway. It was a total anomaly. So hopefully yours was too!
