Exclamation Disaster during the nights. ”HELP!

Hello everyone:

Clo (Dachshund, 8 months old) has started againg peeing and pooping at home, but this time I haven't been capable to solve this.

We give her the food 3 times per day: at 7:30 - at 14:00 - at 19:00. We walk her between 5/6 times per day, and she doesn't pee or poop during the day. The problem comes during the night (or when we're not present).

The last walk she has is at 22:00 (sometimes later), and usually she pees and poops at this walk, so I think that she won't pee or poop during the night.

But since the last week when we wake up in the morning the house is a complete mess . ”usually 3 pees and 4 poops! Besides, Lusy (Dachshund, 2,5 years old) today also did a poop which hasn't happened in years.

Frankly I don't know what to do, apart of removing her the dinner, cause I know that the pees and poops of the night are a result of her dinner digestion.



I need help to solve this problem that has ruined our wellbeing at home. ”Thanks!

Can you crate her at night? Make your last walk a couple of hours after her last meal, and no water after the last meal either. She might still be young enough to need a middle of the night walk to pee, I haven't had a dog that young in a long time. Each walk she should pee and poop though. I'd only feed twice a day.
There's lot of info on housebreaking which is more thorough I'm sure, but I'd crate her at night and make sure she goes during each walk.

I'm presuming that when U say, "She doesn't pee or poop during the day", U mean INDOORS - she voids outdoors during daytime hours, yes?


Q re meals - Did the vet suggest 3 meals / day?
That's a lot; most pups who are normally healthy are eating 2 meals/ day by 3-MO.
Only tiny-toys who will weigh under 4# as adults might need 3 per day, as their stomachs are small & their metabolism, fast - hypoglycemia can make them excessively sleepy [14 or more hours / day], faint / collapse, or act drunk.

Most dogs eat 2 meals approx 12 hrs apart - 7-am & 6-pm, or similar. // Regular mealtimes help to stimulate regular stools.

Unless there's an overriding medical reason for a 3rd meal, i'd ditch it.

Also - with 2 dogs, approx same size, how do U know which one produced which stool/s?
I've had several cases in which clients were absolutely certain which dog in a multi-dog home was GUILTY - & a CC-TV camera then proved that the dog they'd blamed wasn't the culprit, but another dog.

U've only got 2, so the odds are 50 / 50, but could it be the other dog "contributes" to the overnite messes?

Yes, I meaned that during the day she pees and poops outdoors.

The vet recommended me to feet them 3 meals per day, but only when they where still young. From now on, I'll start feeding her 2 times per day.

And yes, I'm sure it's Clo because the size of their pees and poops is really different, that's why I'm sure about this.

If I feed her at 6 o'clock she will probably poop during the night.

Thumbs up Crate!

I'd also crate her - using an airline-approved shipping crate, not a wire AKA 'show' crate.

That gives her privacy, it won't leak, & well-made ones have a moat around a raised center floor so that spills [solid or liquid] have somewhere to go, & the dog doesn't have to lie in them - water, vomit, diarrhea, kibble, it can all flow into the moat.

Shipping crates are one-piece molded tops & bottoms; they don't leak, & the bottom half is one solid clamshell.
