He's not a contestant on this fall's all-star edition of Dancing With the Stars, and that's a good thing for Joey Lawrence. The DWTS alum and his family are in the midst of house training their new puppy Leo.
"He's [pooping] everywhere," Lawrence told PEOPLE at the Total Recall premiere Wednesday in Hollywood."But I did teach him to come, sit, and stay within the first week. It was unbelievable, and he's really smart."

Been there, done that.
That's how Joey Lawrence seems to feel about Dancing with the Stars – as the actor, 36, says he declined an invitation to return for this fall's all-star season.
"I did it. It was good for me," Lawrence told PEOPLE at Wednesday's Los Angeles premiere of Total Recall. "We got to the end there, and it was down to me, Emmitt [Smith] and Mario [Lopez], and it was good."

There's no question that Joey Lawrence has, uh, Blossomed since his days as a '90s TV star.
The actor, who currently has a hit with ABC Family's Melissa and Joey, put his flawless physique on display Thursday afternoon during a shirtless workout at a park in L.A.
Lawrence, 35, who typically sports a closely-cropped buzz cut, showed off new longer locks – and muscles galore – during his exercise outing.

Joey Lawrence doesn't mind shelling out a small fortune to own a little Tiffany.
Filming a movie in Australia, the Melissa & Joey star stopped by a local shelter and spotted a true jewel: a female black Labrador-Australian heeler mix.
"She was just the most amazing little thing ever," he told PEOPLE at the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards presented by Cesar Canine Cuisine.
"We had to bring her home. It cost me, like, $1,000 to get her into the country, but it was worth it. She's just an amazing animal."
