I have a theory that somehow putting pressure on the lead helps stimulate the bowels. Like the straining/pulling forward motion helps get things moving. No idea if it's correct but my last two dogs have done the same thing, needing to be right at the end of the leash pulling just before they go poop. First dog was always a puller on walks do to lack of training but second is trained and doesn't pull otherwise except occasionally to greet other dogs. I don't let them pull me anywhere they just needed to pull and pace at the end of the leash for a bit before going. But I never tried to stop it either since it wasn't a big issue for me.
