I am taking care of my daughter's 3 year old belgian mal. How can I get him to go to the bathroom off leash? I take him out, tell him to "go potty", sometimes he pees other times he just walks around or looks at me as if he's confused. I know he can go to the bathroom outside on his own. He does it for other people but I can't get him to go for me. I had him over the summer last year and I think he associates me with the leash and going for walks to go to the bathroom as we didn't have a fenced yard so he had to go on leash. Do I just wait him out?

My daughter's dogs did the same thing to me when they first come to stay, but after a day I would take them outside with a book in my hand and just sit and read until the deed is done, after that they would start going much quicker. good luck
