Well, he's not exactly a puppy. He just turned 1yr old a couple weeks ago. He's a miniature dachshund named Henry and we are having a lot of trouble getting him house broken. He has no problem going outside, but he refuses to (excuse me for being blunt) poop outside. His favorite place is in front of the guest bedroom door, and if we block it off so that he can't get to it, he just goes wherever he can. On the rare occasion that he actually poops outside, we make sure to give him lots of praise and he even gets one of his favorite treats afterwards, and this is the only time he gets them. I thought that this would maybe help, but it hasn't made any difference. We'll even keep him outside for long walks or just circling the yard for half an hour when we know he has to go, but he'll just wait as long as it takes and then poop as soon as he gets inside. We've been having this struggle since he was 12 weeks old. I've tried bringing him to it, telling him no and then bringing him outside and he doesn't get it. We've tried so many different things and I really don't want to have to use puppy training pads because he's smart enough to know better, and also because he starts peeing on them too. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
