We noticed that Maggie is pooping more often than not today. She must of pooped about 5-6 times already today. In the past 2 hours she's pooped 3 times. Is this normal for a growing dog? Her poop does not seem different.
Reese poops every time she goes out. She will make a partial deposit, sniff around a bit, romp for a few minutes, then make the final deposit before she is ready to come back in. We take her out about 6 times a day.
Once Atticus realized that he would get a treat for pooping in the correct spot in the yard, he started "rationing" his poops to get as many treats out of it as he could. He would poop a little bit in one spot, wander around a bit and poop a little more, then sometimes a third time, and bounding over for his treat after each deposit. Cracks me up.
You said she is a growing dog -- does that mean she is eating more, training and getting more treats? Kane is finally settling into a routine of going 4 or 5 times a day, but if he goes out on more walks I can count on him going more than that.
