Hmm...dogs have bowls inside them? Just messing with youI have a theory that somehow putting pressure on the lead helps stimulate the bowls.
Yep, I get that from Wally sometimes. It's even worse when he really does want to poop in another spot, but he usually poops where he is and I keep saying "go potty" and he keeps looking over at the area like "I WANT TO BUT YOU WON'T LET ME GO OVER THERE." and I'm like - "just poop here already, you did two days ago". And he's like "FINE, I'LL HOLD IT AND NOT POOP SO THERE!" and I'm like "fine with me. Vamanos!"Has anybody else experienced this? Its usually on our short (not going for a walk) bathroom breaks that Caeda does this. She has gotten pretty good on leash, minimum pulling, with the exception of the rare bolt after something particularly intriguing. Usually if she feels some pressure on the leash, regular leash, flexi or long line, she'll back off a bit. Time to go....NOPE. She HAS to poo "OVER THERE!!!", originally I was thinking ok, short leash, she doesn't want me standing directly over her when she does her business, so I tried our flexi (which is extra long), and no matter how far away she is, she wants to be an extra foot or two further and she paces back and forth frantically until she has no choice but to stop. She tries everything, head down pulling, bolting etc. but only pulls this bad when she needs to go.
