We got a 5mo Lab/Collie 3wks ago. His first week here he had no accidents in the house. But about the 8th day he was here we found he had pooped in DD's room. In the next 3 days he kept going back. I shampoo'd in there with special "dog shampoo" from Petsmart and we are trying to keep DD door shut for a while so i can shampoo again & hopefully brake him of the habit. But we are not use to her door being closed so we all forget.
About 5 minutes ago I look up & see him coming out of her room & sure enough-he left me something in there!
I dont know what to do! My dh just went out with him an hour ago! And he doesnt really give us a "signal".. We take him out about every 4-5hrs (if not more during the day)...
During the day if he stands/sits by the door I ask him if he needs to go potty & let him out..
But hes never pawed at the door or anything :-(
IDK what to do.
How do I remove the smell so he doesnt keep returning to his "spot". How to break this habit? And get him to signal us to let him out?

I would let him out much more often. He is young. I would clean the spot with soap and water. Then pour vinegar on that spot. Let it evaporate. The smell will only last a few days, but the poop smell will be gone.
