To stop stepping in poop, you need to train your puppy to go on the edge of the yard, near the woods, or somewhere far from where anyone steps. Direct your puppy to the same spots everytime you take it out. When it get's older, it will go to the bathroom on the side of the yard instead of where you step. To stop the dog from pooping in the house, take it out every time it wakes up from a nap. Also, take it out 20 to 30 minutes after it eats.
