My dog isn't going!

Hello Folks,

I need help, I just don't know what to do. I recently adopted a new dog. He's 2 and a labrador mix. I already had another dog, so it took some time for them to stop fighting and be friends. Recently my brother and I took started taking them both to the local dog park. The only place they get to be off their leash. Ever since then, my newbie has stopped going poop. My brother thinks it's because he's holding it for the park. And I have to admit that while he won't urinate at home except once a day, as soon as he gets to the dog park he'll go at least 4 different times in 4 different spots.

What do I do about this behavior. I'm still not convinced there's not a health issue. But my Kelso hasn't pooped in at least 2 days and I know that can't be healthy. I can't take him to the dog park every single day just to make sure he's going.

Thanks for your help!!!

My dog poops a lot while we're at the dog park. I think it's a mix of the excitement and mobility that gets things going. Do you go on regular walks with him? If he isn't going, you can try giving him some extra exercise that would mimic his experience physically at the dog park.

Exercise will certainly create and increase their urge to poop. One thing you can do, is increase the amount of fiber he gets in his diet. You could mix some high fiber kibble in with his regular food, which should help keep him regular.

This is so true aside from the excitement they get when outside. I'll be taking your advice.
