How do I stop my dog from pooping in the house?

My dog is a 3 year old Chihuahua that I picked up from the SPCA. This is his only remaining character flaw; though I am at my wits end. Can anyone supply any kind of method or trick which may be somewhat effective regarding this problem. The is not left out food at night (bed time), he is walked before bed time, and many other stategies have simply not worked. Someone please help me. PS: I have even used a spray bottle to discipline, eventhough this sometimes seems cruel it appear effective in other areas. Thanks for your help.

    What is your dog’s feeding schedule? You should feed 1-2 times a day and absolutely no snacks or food after 4-5pm. Same w/ water (take water away by 6pm).

    Also keep in mind they are small they can’t hold their poop or pee in like a bigger dog. So you may have to get up in the middle of the night to let the little one out. If you don’t want to get up in the middle of the night then start training your dog on the puppy pad’s.

    Have you tried using indoor pee pads? I’ve heard they work.

    I am struggle with the problem now. What I am doing is:

    1. When I am home, take her out after meal, if she does not poo, I keep take her out every hour, until she poo.
    2. When I am not home, I confine her in master bathroom, she always poo in the toilet room next to the toilet.

    But still, there were accident when I did not pay attention to her after meal.
