The world famous (soon to be) Odor Voder Collar can detect specific emmissions present with pet elimination and issue an audio alert.
Why, you ask? It is much easier to train a dog not to soil the carpet if you can catch them in the act. The problem solved by this OVC is that some dogs are smart (or devious) enough to try to hide their time of emmision from their owners, making the task of house breaking all the more difficult.

       What technology would be used to detect the odors?

       He might have a good sense of smell, but would he fit onto the collar?

       The link you posted only works to detect natural gas, not other odors.

       I had assumed methane would be present in sufficient quantities to trigger the alarm at the appropriate time. Perhaps I made an incorrect assumptions. I was trying to research it, but It's just more than I want to know about feces right now.   

       I did find out that methane has no odor, contrary to what I stated in the link.
