My 10 month old maltese is housebroken, uses her potty pad to pee pee and most of the time to poo. however she will sneak in my bedroom and go poo under the bed and knows she shouldn't cause she will run out of there really quick. Any suggestions?

Hello Beachlover, welcome to the forum.

If this is the only place she has accidents, I'm thinking the simplest solution would be to close your bedroom door :shrug: .

Where is the pee/poo pad and how often do you change it?

The runnign out really quick is likely due to your reaction. Not because your dog understands that isn't the place to go. If she's having accidents still, I'd suggest going back to house training basics. Accidents isn't fully potty trained unfortunately. Hopefully with a quick refresher on house breaking, and a good cleaning with an enzymatic cleaner the problem will be solved.
