No, you can't really train this. He poops as much as he has the urge to. Some dogs are fast, some are slow. Some poop infrequently and all at once, some spread it out.
The only things (aside from health issues) that affect this are: food quality, food quantity, meal frequency, water intake, and exercise frequency and duration.
My guess is that, when you take your dog for a walk, he has been mostly inactive for several hours before the walk. Regular/frequent exercise usually leads to more complete and regular bowel movements.
