Hi all!

After a year of having to walk my down all the way down the street to finally get him to do his business, we finally sprung for getting a fence put in our back yard, so that he can roam free.

Unfortunately he has not taken to going to the bathroom there on any regular basis, no matter how badly he has to go.

After an entire day of him not going, I'll finally break down and leash him and walk him out front and he'll pee IMMEDIATELY.

Here's what I've tried...

1. Just not walking him at all, but eventually I break down for fear of him getting a bladder infection or sick from not pooping.
2. Leashed him and walked him the perimeter of the yard, for at least 30-45 minutes multiple occasions, to no avail.
3. Bringing over the family dogs and letting them pee/poop back there (he'll go right away, but once they're gone, no dice)
4. Sprayed a bush I planted for him in hopes of coaxing him to pee on it with the phermone sprays, I've also sprayed the fence and grass.
5. Playing ball with him but eventually because he has to go so bad he stops playing
6. Giving him treats as SOON as he DOES on the rare occasion goes to the bathroom.

If I take him over my parents who have a big yard, he pees/poops with no problem. About the only time he'll even consider pooping in our back yard is if he sees a neighborhood dog and runs back and forth along the fence even stimulates having to go.
