Hi angelinazzz, Lukka is on Orijen and she poops about three times a day, sometimes it might be four just depends. She eats approx. 4+ cups daily.

That sounds about right with my gang. What I am finding however, is that the longer they are on Origen is that the volume (heft ? moundage ? ) is decreasing.

Both my dogs are on Orijen. One poops twice a day (big ones) and the other 2 to 4 times a day (small ones).

Mine eats almost 4 cups a day, Orijen, and she poops twice, sometimes 3 times, and right after she eats. BUT...it's always healthy looking, never soft or runny, easy to pick up. Thats what matters to me. Poop wise anyways. hahah!

Our two also eat Origen, they get two meals each of about 1/6 of a cup. One poops before each meal, the other after. We feed around the same time more or less each day, so I think its just coincidence that we this weird before and after thing going on.

I have an extremely hard time picking up poo, my husband is on never ending poop duty...I will do it if we are out and about or at another persons house, but hardley ever at home. If I try, I gag and gag and dry heave, I feel like such an idiot....but I have a real hard time! One of my friends says it's too painful to see me gag that she picks it up for me before I can even get to it.

I think I'm immune by now. But I do have a hard time sometimes with the diarya accidents in the house (yep , there's been a few lately but thank dog , it's under control now)
