Puppy poo'ing in the house all of a sudden?

Kai hasnt pee'd or poo'd in the house since he was 3 and a half months old. He's now 7 months old.

This morning my dad told me that he randomly did a poo right in front of the kitchen door with out giving any warning. I didnt believe him as kai normally sits or scratches the door. Then i witness it for myself

I took kai for a pee then came in and sat down on the sofa. Kai was wondering around the living room as he does. He comes up to me and i stroked him for a bit. Then he wonders off and 2 mins later he comes back. I go check where he was and i see that hes done a poo right near the dining table. He didnt sit by the kitchen door like normal or scratch it either..

how comes this is happening?

A 7 months old pup is not a fully potty trained dog. I had to remind myself when my girl would slip to simply start over. Time when the pup is getting close to needing to eliminate and take it outside before it has a chance to mess up. Not that it could nt be the issue but I never had a problem with the weather and training a pup to eliminate outside. Good luck

Yes. Many dogs don't care to go outside in the cold and wet

Okay its getting serious.

Kai just did a poo in the same area with out giving any signs (normally he barks at the door or scratches it). Whats even weirder is that he normally does a poo in the morning at about 8 and 7 in the evening. How can i put a stop to this? anyone?

I would do 2 things. First a vet check, yeah may be over kill but since it appears to be unusual behavior I would want to make sure there isn't anything physical going on. Second, I would back up in potty training. Limited freedom - crated if I can't keep eye on him at the moment, frequent potty breaks, possibly leashed to me if I am up and about throughout the house.

his stomach maybe upset and he can't hold it. a
Vet visit maybe in order. when he came to you
he was probably telling you/signaling you that
he needed to go out.

Twyla, good post.

It's easy to bring in a stool sample to the vet to check for creepy crawlies. Is his poo runny? Wonder if it comes on all of a sudden & it's hard for him to hold it.

At 7 months...this is weird to me.

If there's no medical issue...back to basics. I like Twyla's advice.
