• Miniature dachshund won't go poop outside only pee. When we take him out he pees outside and that's all. Then when we bring him inside he poops on the pad.

    Hi Pamela,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. While this is most likely a behavior issue, it can also be caused by an underlying medical or physical issue. If there is an underlying issue then treating that can often resolve the behavior. If this is primarily a behavior issue, your vet can get some more information from you and recommend the appropriate behavior modification plan.
