My year and a half year old golden is normally very easy to train, she was housebroken within a week of bringing her home. Due to a injury my wife is no longer able to walk her to go poop when I am not home. We are trying to train her to go out in the yard while attached to a tie out leash. She has been peeing while tied out, after a long time being out there, but we cannot get her to poop. I know that she has to go, but she just won't. She sits down or walks and smells the ground without relieving herself. I am trying to not take her off the leash and walk her becuase I feel that she will figure out that if she waits long enough she will just get her way. I have even planted a poop of her own in the yard with hopes that she will smell this and realize that it is okay to relieve herself in the yard. Anybody else have this problem or something like it? And what did you do? This is critical that she learns it is okay to go in the yard. HELP!!
