I echo LibertyME's thoughts exactly... I had a dog that used to do that too- as soon as he was done, I'd bring him inside, so "potty time" started taking a long long time...

I eventually pretended that we were ONLY going out to play.. I'd throw the ball/frisbee, whatever, and when he would pee/poop, I'd give him a "good boy!" and go back to playing.

After awhile, if I needed him to go quickly, I wouldn't bring a toy out, and he'd "git 'er done" pretty quickly.

Darby is famous for his 5 minute pees, not looking for the perfect spot, just peeing for 5 minutes. I swear that dog is part camel. He never wants to go out so most of the time I send him out the door, dopey dog.

Now when it comes to pooping - it can take him 10 minutes to find the perfect spot, then he has to try it out, and usually it's not quite the right spot.

I'll have to agree that having taught Amber to use the potty on command was one of the best things the Breeder directed us to do from the time we got her at 2 months old. Having used the command "Go quickly" from the first day and every day since when on leash in the yard has made it so nice and helpful in order to avoid issues such as the op mentioned. running late for work, being on a road trip at rest areas with others waiting us, as type of service dog that requires she use small sections of grass that might be available before entering stores while out working certainly makes things so much easier. I would definately start working on using a command on your choice while using a leash. Then when the pup does his job, give them lots of praise and a small treat. After doing this for a short time the pup should start to understand what you want. You do have to allow for some time for this to work so give yourself some extra time before work so you do not end up frustrated.
