I have a year old beagle that poops I. The same spot on the steps all the time. Nowhere else in the house but on the steps.

we take him outside he will hold it until he gets in and goes right to that spot. if we block it off he won't poop anywhere else in the house he will just hold it and wait. we have cleaned the hell out of that spot with a shampooer but it still happens. help please.

***** Dogs go by scent. Sorry to be gross, take the dogs poo and place it outside where you want them to go. Put tide on the area it's going on. Tide will overpower the nose. Have fun! *****

We had the same problem and my vet told me to sprinkle pepper there because they always smell before they go to the bathroom. It help us that goes for the holes in backyard too it works. Try it out and let me know how it work for you.
