    Default Potty training regression. Please help.

    Henry is 10 months, currently. We began training him on the doggy door at about 3 months and he was trained to use it to both pee and poop exclusively through out the day, unless taking him out for a walk. Just recently he has began defecating in the house again! Always right near the back door, which makes me really pissed. Peeing and pooping! Why is he doing this now?? What can I do to make him understand this is not where he is supposed to potty?

    Back to basics with him... this can happen where they regress and need to be trained again/ reinforced

    "Always right near the back door" hmm

    Is this where the doggy door is? This tells me he's trying to tell you something too…is the door too small?
    he obviously knows to go out if he's "going" right by the door. If this is where the doggy door is, he may have a problem using the door and is trying to let you know.

    Agree w/having to go back to basics and breaking this habit asap…he may need the regular door opened for him or adjustments made to the doggie door.

    If you use the door to go out, he may want the same "treatment". Or something about letting himself out is bothering him…It's really good that he's not finding another place to defecate and urinate in your house, this would be tough to break once that "place" is established. I don't think you have to go to the extent of putting down the pads in front of the door, because he is old enough to hold it (unless there is a medical issue) and that would be going a step before basics.
