In the mornings, Jackson takes FOREVER. Omg, it's so annoying. He probably smells, sniffs, and walks slowly for 10 minutes before even thinking about going potty. Then sometimes he will lift his leg, or get ready to squat like he's going to pee and then changes his mind and just... stops. And goes somewhere else. Then give him another 10 mins to poop lol. It's ridiculous. At my dads house, luckily there's the fenced in yard so I just let him out there and he can take his sweet ole' time but at my moms house, on our 3 acres, I have to walk him on the long line. If we were in a neighborhood, with lots of smells, etc, it wouldn't take him near as long, but he doesn't lift his leg at home, he squats lol, so he's not 'marking' since no other dogs are really around on our property.
