    Default Poop walking

    Is this a Cavalier trait? Remy will start in one place and then squat walk all the while relieving himself. I did have a husky once that did this, but didn't know if this is a breed thing or an individual thing. Any other owners of poop walkers out there?

    The good news is he is doing really well on his potty training and hasn't had a poop accident in the house in over a week. He just turned 15 weeks

    Mine doesn't. Can you encourage him to stay put? I would think there'd be a greater chance of him soiling himself if he's moving...

    Aled does quite often, Oliver doesn't - so perhaps it's an individual preference rather than a breed trait. I've learnt to watch my step when cleaning up after Aled in the garden, because his offerings can be anywhere!

    This is a ridiculous topic What's even more crazy is it seems a lot of our cavaliers do this. Fletcher does too!! He also does this what I call chicken scratching after he poops- he gets in the patio and like flicks his back feet across the concrete. Weirdo!!!! My husband comments that Larry the Cable guy does a joke about his Grandmother with the walking farts and Fletcher has the walking poops.

    Luke does. He starts out in one place, and sometimes I think he's done, but no, he was just spreading it out.
