Caeda gets funny like that sometimes, she hates it in the summer time when the grass is wet from rain, she doesn't want to step off of the deck.
Have you tried going out on the grass yourself and beckoning her to come with you (maybe a tiny bit of pressure on the lead, but don't force it), lure with treats maybe, or a toy? Sometimes Caeda doesn't want to even go out in the rain, but if I go, she'll follow.
You could even tether your dog so it can reach the grass easily, go out there yourself and just...I dunno...frolic? Act like its a great fun place to be, despite the melty sludge that I know you probably hate (I know I do, I'm in Canada too, it just hasn't quite melted yet). Once you get her thinking that its fun out there she might start willingly going on her own. On the other hand you might always have to put your boots on and go out there first....better than her messing on the floor inside though!
