Help!
My 2.5 year old Lab has started defecating in our dining room (she has been going in the same spot)! The first time I wrote it off to an accident. The second time I wrote it off to the fact I'm travelling for work again but this has been going on for almost four weeks! My wife, and kids, are ready to kill the dog! She is a great dog otherwise and spends a lot of time with the family. Any suggestions??
Thanks in advance!

What is the surface? Are you cleaning adequately? Blocking the space to break the cycle? Supervising the dog?
What is the consistency of feces? Loose? Normal? How often and when does this happen? Who is her primary care giver when you are home? When you aren't?
What kind of time is spent with her? Excercise? Training? Any food changes? Has she had a vet check recently?

yes, take him to the vet. Could be any number of physical issues. Once they are ruled out (and I suspect there may be a physical reason) please come back and post again.
