Golden Pooping on Treadmill!!

My dog has been pooping on the treadmill for a while and I have no idea how to curb this problem? Should I just use a puppy diaper?

Can I ask, how often does he get out for walks to do his business?? Or are you using the treadmill for exercise and he thinks he is outside?

I definitely need more information in order to provide any relevant advice.

I'm just guessing here but the surface of the treadmill must feel similar to a place he is allowed to poop. I'm thinking the treadmill needs to be moved to a room he doesn't have access to or needs to be covered when not is use.

Could be that he needs the physical act of running to help stimulate his need to evacuate...or maybe the treadmill is just stressful enough to bring on the need to go...

My guess is smell. They do like to go in the same place. So use Natures Miracle or one of the other enzyme cleaners on it, or water and white vinegar.

It's completely wrong that I think this post is hysterical. Maybe that's just because it's finals week and my brain and body are tired..., but it's probably the unexpectedness of that phrase, "golden pooping on treadmill." Hillarious (when it's not your treadmill anway).

Truly, BLESS YOUR HEART. Good luck with this issue! Bless you!

My friend works at a vet clinic with a treadmill....and it's not uncommon for some dogs to poop while on the treadmill....

But I think what we want to know....is your dog exercising when this is happening or not?

Either way, mroe supervision and he only gets near the treadmill when you KNOW he is empty.

When we first started exercising Whiskey on our treadmill, he had a few poop accidents. I have found if we let him out before hand and halfway through his work out, we avoid the problem. My theory is that getting them moving stimulates the need to have a bowel movement.
And yes, Whiskey would be running while he was pooping...like a horse...LOL
