How can I get my Pomeranian to go to the bathroom outside?

He's a purebread Pomeranian about 1-2 years old. I adopted him a few months ago and at first it seemed like he was making progress. Now, he has no problem peeing outside, but he will not poop. I'll keep him out for a while and take him for a walk and the first thing he does when we come inside is poop, every single time. Any suggestions?

You need to show him that's not where he is supposed to go. When he does it say no firmly and give his nose a little smack then bring the poop outside where you want him to go and show him where you put it and say go poop or something like that so he understands what it is and that the phrase means to go poop. He hopefully will catch on that poop goes outside and not inside.

Pooping in the house is a dogs way of saying he doesn't respect you. He's saying he's dominant. A dogs sense of smell is greater then any human. He does not enjoy the smell of his own poop.
You have to create dominance over your dog. There is only one way.
My advice is to look up the episode of Cesar Millan about a dog who has the exact same problem. The man is a genius!
