I have one like that too! Although, finally, he is getting a bit better. We have a nice strip of grass approximately 20+ feet wide and half a block long or better that is just outside our yard, where we take the boys out to potty, on leash. Augie is so good, when he has to poo, about going out and doing his business pronto. With Finn, I walk him back and forth on that strip of grass, sometimes back and forth, three times each direction, before he might poo, no matter if he tries to drag me back to the house. By now, I have figured out the times he usually goes. If he hasn't gone after that amount of walking, I figure he doesn't have too. But he was doing the poo thing the minute my back was turned too; it was a bit of a regression in his potty habits, and I just started taking him out every hour for awhile, and it seems to have taken care of that (knock on wood). But if we take him out and just let him sniff around, we would be out there a lot longer - the walking seems to get things going.
