Angry Bonding?

I've noticed Chester being more lovable and bonding more with us. He is exactly 4 months and 4 weeks. Snuggling, kissing, staying near us, (which is good) and giving us the most wubbable puppy eyes ever. Even though he loves us, he has attachment disorder. Whenever we take him outside to potty, he'll race to our neighbors yard and pee and poop over there because they have a dog too. Actually just now, he pawed at the door, and I thought, "Ugh, well now he has to potty again." I open the door and he sprinted to their house - again. When is this going to stop? Now we're using a leash, but now he feels he is "chained" or being "punished". I just want Chester to know: This is your house and you stay and potty in this yard, don't go in their yard cuz it's not yours and they don't appreciate it. O.K.?? I need advice for this to stop.

Hav to hav a Hav!!!

get clicking Ruth, piece of cake lol I only had to do our front yard with Molly as our back yard is all fenced. It was easy with the front as pavement and ashphalt were natural boundaries and out of bounds. Supervision is a must though. No methods are totally safe.
