It depends on the dog and its age. Puppies need to go more often, as do older dogs. If your dog is healthy and is not constipated, it will usually go twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening. If your dog is sick or has diarrhoea, it could go more than once a day.Because when dogs poop, they often lift their tails as well, it’s hard to tell exactly when they do it. As a result, some people suggest counting to 10 before your dog poops! That way you know that 10 minutes have passed before you take their leash off to let them out.
Should my dog be pooping 5 times a day?
While theres no right or wrong answer to this, it depends on your dogs environment and health.If your dog is in a home with multiple dogs or is outside a lot, he may be pooping more often than needed. If he is healthy, it may not be a problem. If he is not healthy: the more repeated the pooping, the more likely there may be a problem.If your dog has frequent loose stools, he may need to go more often than 5 times per day. If your dog has diarrhea, he may need to go more often than 5 times per day.If your dog is outside a lot or in an environment where there are lots of seperate places (pipes, drains, etc.) for him to go to the bathroom, then he may poop 5 times per day if his needs are being met and if his diet is ideal (lots of fresh water and high-quality food). If that is not the case, he may need to go more often than 5 times per day.
