Q. Whenever I take my dog for a walk, she always wants to be carried, and right before she wants to be carried, she poops on the road. Suggestions??
A. Do not carry her. I would recommend taking a puppy 1 or adult 1 Obediance class. Exposing your dog to the world and giving your dog the confidence to walk on her own will help her be independent. Create a marker word 'Go Potty' when she poops. Take her to the same spot to poop. Move her from the pavement to the grass mid-poop (if the grass next to it is where you want her to poop).
