    Default How many "poops" a day are normal??

    Bogey came home on Eukanuba large breed pup kibble. I have been slowly transitioning to Fromms puppy kibble. He eats 3/4 cup am amd pm, and slightly less at noon. His stool was a little soft, so I started adding pumpkin, and they are much better. HOW MANY POOPS A DAY IS NORMAL? Yesterday he woke me at 5:30 and went poop. Breakfast at 7, poop. Playtime, another poop at 10. lunch at 12:30, poop. 2 more poops throughout the afternoon, Dinner at 6ish, poop. Playtime, poop. 10pm, last potty before bed, poop. I woke him at 3 am to go out (yes, he is going from 10pm- 3am!) he peed and went rigth back to the crate. Heard him howling at 4 am, really bothered, so I took him back out, yep, you guessed it, POOP! He settled right back down and went back to sleep til 6, and we are starting all over again. His poop is very formed, and normal. Is this amount normal?? Should I transition a little faster to the Fromms? Right now I give him a little more than 2/3 of amount is Eukanuba, the rest is Fromms. Advice would be greatly appreciated!
    PS he has adjusted to his crate very well now!! That;s why I knew with his howling at 4am, something was wrong, even though I know you shouldn't let them out when they cry. "Moooooommmmmmmy, I haaaaaveeee to gooooooooo!" Glad I listened!!

    How old is Bogey? I don't recall Remi ever pooping that much, even on Diamond. Remi is 5 months and now goes about 4 times a day. They tend to be very small poops though due to the limited diet.

    EDIT, I feed Remi 1 cup 3 times a day: morning, afternoon, and night.

    Brutus normally goes 3-4 times a day, and he just turned 5 months last week. We feed one cup in the morning, and one cup at night with some kind of added topping for the night meal. It sounds like a little too much

    I have heard it is age in months plus one hour. So, if he is 3 months old (add 1 hour) he should be able to hold it for 4 hours... If its true or not I dont know.

    When they are pups it's pretty much..food in.. out. Jake still poos 4 sometimes 5 times a day. If his poo is solid..you re fine. If they get soft..it's often too much food. Jake got 1/2 cup 3 times a day until 6 months then I slowly he got him to 1 cup twice a day. He could never get to more than a cup at a time. His poo was just too soft.

    Your transition to new food should be done in about 10-14 days total.

    That's not surprising, he is only 9 weeks old right? They are little pooping machines at that age, we found with Bacon that once we fully transitioned him he pooped less because the food was better. He is a year now and poops 3-5 times a day

    As asmall puppy Amber pooped almost everytime we took her outside but as she got older she pooped less and now she poops twice a day; morning and night. She has always been on homemade dog food so there has never been much of a transition from puppy to adult. As they get older the poops will slow down a bit. Good luck with the puppy.

    Is something wrong with Winston? LOL! He is a year and 1/2 he used to go twice now he only goes once a day. He is on a limited ingredient food though, I am sure that makes a difference!

    He's going to be pooping all the time because he's so young.... eat...poop; sleep...poop; play...poop; sleep again...poop again.

    As the weeks go by you will see the poops reduce... but he'll still be peeing alllll day By the time he's a few months old, he'll probably go 2-3 times per day.

    Herman is 9 months now, he's still pooping 2-3 times a day, and I was taking him out about 6 times.

    Bogey just needs time to turn into a big boy - and that will be before you know it!!


    Funny how as parents we talk freely about poop. What lives we have.

    Holy cow! I don't remember Seamus pooping that much either. We got him at 13 weeks and he went about 4-5 times a day back then and he had giarrdia at the time. We have never had to change his food, our breeder had him on puppy TOTW and we stuck with that. He is now 7.5 months old and goes like clock work. Once immediately when he wakes up, 2-3 hours after breakfast, maybe once in the afternoon then again after dinner on our walks. So somewhere between 3-4 times a day.
