How to get my yorkie from pooping everywhere?

My family and I just resently got a 3 month old female yorkie. She’s good about peeing on a puppy pad but she won’t poop on it. She would also only pee and poop sometimes outside, but she usualy just eats grass and then goes back inside where she poops or pees later but like i said peeing is not the problem.

Is there any way to get her to poop on the puppy pad or outside?

how about training her to go outside?? walk her on a leash several times a day until she goes. when she goes outside, praise her. keep her confined to the room you are in when you are home so you can watch for signs that she needs to go.

    Stop using the puppy pad – that can be a solution.

    If you want her to poop and pee outside, then take her out about 5-15 min after she eats, then play with her until she goes. Eating and exercise both help stimulate the bowels. After she goes, make sure to praise her lots, and then play with her for at least another 5 min afterward before going back inside. If you go in right away, she will associate pottying with going inside, and will teach herself to hold it.

    Also….getting her to poop on the puppy pad… if it’s soiled from, she may not want to go right there. But it still needs to smell a little bit like a pottying place. You could try putting newspaper over top of her pee on the puppy pad, so it’s not soiled on top. You can also try taking her poop from wherever else she goes and putting a little on the puppy pad – she may not know that it’s something to go poop on, not just pee. This way, she realises that it’s for poop too.

    Hope this helps some.

    I can see how you have this problem, because yorkies are hard to housebreak and most dogs that use puppy pads pee on it but don’t poop on it. I had the same problem with my dog.
    The puppy pad has a special smell that stimulates the dog to pee, but not to poop. Which is why she only pees on it.
    If your dog lives inside always and doesn’t go on grass too much, then walk her outside and let her sniff and inspect the grass. Dogs that aren’t used to grass tend to use it as a toilet a few moments after they step on it, if they have to pee/poop.
    You can also get some of her poo and put it on the pad, to see if she understands.
    If you see she’s gonna squat down outside of the pad, take her to it so she’ll poop on it.
    Also dog’s aren’t as comfortable pooping in front of people as they are peeing in front of people.
    So if you only have one pamper up, put up one or two more in other rooms that are quiet and secluded and take her to them to let her investigate and smell them.
    My dog poops like this, she pees on whichever pamper she’s nearest to but only poops in the pamper in the family room, which is the room which we don’t usually go to.
    If you do this then remember to leave the door to that room open.

    I can’t take my puppy out all of the time.  How can I get her to poop on her pads?  She basically will be an in house dog.

    Confineing her to one room did not work.  She is 10  months old now and still will not poop on a pad. HELP.
