TXRedbo Posted March 31, 2016 Share Posted March 31, 2016 (edited) Hi all, so we just moved from an apartment to a house (with a yard!), and we've run into an issue with Redbo. At the apartment, he had going P&P down to a science. He would do his business in 8 minutes flat in the mornings and at night, with an hour walk in the afternoons. Now that we've moved to a house with a yard, we've continued the afternoon walk, but turn him out in the yard in the morning and at night. Unfortunately, he'll just lay in the grass or play around for 45 minutes without ever going potty. My husband takes him out during his breaks (works at home), but he can't stay out there forever until Redbo goes so they end simply going back inside. It's noon over here, and Redbo hasn't pooped since 10pm last night because he just won't go!! They're outside, but Redbo just goes to the door and tries to go back inside. He does have one spot in the yard where he poops every time, but getting him to go quickly is the problem. So what we should we do to train him to go in less than 20 minutes or so? We are going to create a turnout area for him with straw and stuff, but even then, how do we train him to go to that particular spot and actually "go?" Oh and he does go outside at other times that are not potty times. Whenever we're outside, he goes with us. Thanks! Edited to add info!
