    Never heard anything like it in my life. Does the little dog seem to have limited control of her bladder and bowel? Maybe her muscle control is still quite weak and when she needs to go, she needs to go! Hopefully she will outgrow this behaviour.

    Was there anything questionable about her at birth - was she the runt or slow to get her first breath etc. Has she met all her other milestones? I am curious as to how the owner describes her - is she sweet, devil child or anxious/nervous? It is like she has no personal boundaries or manners, isn't it. She is still quite young - does the owner think she is a little slow. Could there be brain damage?

    Hopefully the vet might have some magical answers as I am guessing pup is due for a visit for vaccinations.

    I once owned a dog who I loved to bits but his disgusting habit was eating road kill but only after rolling on it! Walk would end with a wash and me avoiding that great big tongue he wanted to lick my face with. Mind you I would not trade his habit for the one you described above any day.
    Good evening Ratbag,

    Dang your on to me..Vampire it is

    Muscle control is a very good thought!

    I am not sure about the little dogs birth as her mum found the pup and I didnt ask where she got it, but apart from this discusting behaviour she seems to be a happy,healthy, alert, normal rouseabout pup.

    I know some pups take awhile to toilet train ie weeing pooing on the floor...but water bowls, food bowls and peoples feet?

    Oh my, rolling in road kill and giving you a nice slobbery kiss? Now that is a very good example of a discusting habit, but for a dog its "perfume", Im sure you were impressed

    My puppy in a box dog Jessie once dragged a road kill kangeroo from in front of my house down onto the back lawn. I was there alone with my 2 kids who were 10 and 13. I tried to put a rope on it to drag it back out to the street but it was "moving , full of maggots" and i kept dry reaching and couldnt do it.
    So i asked my 10 year old to drag it out, and he did bless him....GAGGING all the way with a t=towl wrapped around his nose (dont worry, i got the pics and enbarrass him from time to time).

    Anyway the B$%^h dragged it back in later that day!, so i had to bribe a council worker into coming and getting it.

    If the person can't afford one of these $55, there's not going to be much joy paying for a vet visit.

    I am inclined to think there is something wrong with the puppy, but also notice the training description seems inconsistent.

    I'm wondering what the owner is cleaning up with, and what they do when they discover a crap in progress and when they discover one later... is the puppy somehow getting encouraged by the owner's behaviour?

    But the most important thing would be to out wait the dog - ie the dog does not get to come back inside until the crap has appeared in the right place. Then heaps of praise, maybe some treats and the dog gets to come in. And full supervision inside. How does the dog get the opportunity to mess in all those places? Ie a second of inattention from the owner - and the dog learns it's ok to crap anywhere it likes. Though why it likes the food bowl is beyond me. Is there something about the food?

    And she would be wise to train the dog to crap on command. Ie when the dog goes where it should, say the word...
    She has no problem with the vet visits as her mum pays because its her dog, she has had all her needles, she worms ALL her animals, she has 2 dogs, 2 rescue cats, cows and horses and guinnea pigs but dosent spend on things she might think are unneccessary hence she tried the box first but will get a crate but im not sure it will work other than to "contain" the mess maybe, and i know she will feel bad leaving her in it.

    She is extremely consistant taking her outside but really frustrated she will only sometimes go, she also has 2 older girls who stay out with her as well.
    I realize something she is doing maybe making it worse and maybe there is a medical reason but its HOW she does it, in the bowls, in the car, and on someones foot???.
    I have never seen a dog that will foul its food or water before?

    The owner needs to be more observant and get puppy out to the toilet area quicker.

    I currently have a pup from a breeder who kept the litter more confined (due to building works next door) and he is proving to be more challenging to toilet train than any other pup I've even bred or bought. I watch him like a hawk and have even erected an outdoor umbrella strapped to a fence star picket so I'm protected from the current crappy Sydney weather.
    That is a really good point and just may explain the behavior, I will try and find out what conditions she was in.
    Good luck with your little fellow

Definately crate train that pup me thinks. I love my crate it saved me. Lol. My puppy already sleeps through the whole night and wakes me up early in the morning for wee's and then i can put her back in and go back to sleep and so does she. Lol. It's awesome.
    She sounds adorable

    It is possible to train a dog to be happy in a crate. Mine goes in hers voluntarily though I admit lack of work on my part - she doesn't like it when I shut the door, but she tolerates that when we're not home - cos I don't cave in when we're out.

    A cow's hoof to chew on goes a long way towards keeping the peace. A chi x would probably last a long time on a piece of roo jerky.
