Default mealtime and going number 2

Hi Everyone,

Khloee came home yesterday, and for the most part she is doing pretty good. We had a few accidents in the house, where we went outside and immediately after coming inside Khloee let herself go lol but for the most part, she is great about going outside to pee pee and poo poo. My concern is that most sites I read say that dogs go poo poo 10-15 minutes after eating. Khloee goes hours...and I am positive she is not going in the house because I am with her 24 hours of the day.

So is the long period between poops normal? Right now I am mixing wet and dry food because that is what she has been on and I can't get her to eat just plain dry kibble.

Any advice would be great.

Thank you

She will need a few days to adjust. I would keep her on the same diet her breeder had her on and keep things quiet.... so she can get used to her new home.

Congrats on Khloee coming home...
