Default Poop-to pick it up or not

I know we should ALL pick up our dogs poop, but this is a 6wk old puppy and her poop is well- not pick up able It is pretty much liquid....so what do you do? offer to spray it out of the yard or just try to keep the dog in my own yard for now?

Keep it in your own yard, and hose it off also. Dog poop, whether solid or liquid, is nasty.

What is she eating? Is the dog sick? Wet food often comes out wet--just in case you don't know.

Keep the puppy in your own yard for now if you are not able to pick up after her. Also, at 6 weeks the pup has not had all shots - can be more susceptible to stuff from other dogs (or stuff other dogs have left on the ground) - might be safer to keep in your own yard for a while anyway.

I agree keep her in your yard for now.

Feed her purina one puppy chow. The poop should be hard not runny. I know that sounds gross but.........

It is even true for older dogs, Purina One is easy to clean up.

Actually, I just bought some food at the feedstore called Loyall. It is good stuff too. It is 27 - 31% protein depending on what kind you get.

6 weeks old is really, really young. She should still be with her mom. (I hope you didn't buy her... it's illegal in most states to sell/take away a puppy from it's mother before they are 8 weeks old.) So I would keep her away from all other dogs & yards until she has had her shots... please DON"T feed Purina puppy chow- it's awful, awful food. Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble However, I have no idea what a 6 wk old puppy should be eating.

Onto the poo question- always pick it up. ALWAYS. Don't give dog owners a bad rap by not picking it up...

sorry for the bad advice. Guess I'm not an expert None of my dogs have ever been sick or died from it. Been using it for years.

What kind of dog did you get? I raise toy fox terriers, when they are 6 weeks old there is no way I could walk them.
But they are tiny, tiny at that age. Just wondering
