I walk him about 4 times a day and he gets lots of exercise outside. He has a weird habit of squatting down to poop and constantly turning in a circle while he is doing his business and sniffing the ground.
Do you have any suggestions for reigning in this behavior? It is weird looking and the dog is always stepping in his own poop and the poop is spread around all over the place making it difficult to pick up a plop here, a drop there. Any ideas to stop the dance so he can poop in one spot like most dogs? Is there any other tip to help make the puppy want to poo in the potty spot??

Any advice is appreciated. Our dogs have decided to poop in our driveway.
The strange thing is that instead of leaving a pile of poop in one location, they both drop bits of poop all over the place! Has anyone seen something like this? How do we deal with it?

I spent over 4 hours today trying to get him to go — and he had to go given his behavior — and he simply refused to budge. At one point, I let him roam free on in the yard leashed and as soon as he began to squat, I quickly moved him to the spot.
No good… he just sat there and refused to continue. So frustrating!! Hi I am having the same problem with my nearly 3 year old lab x collie. Did you find a solution?
