So, for those of you who are not FB friends with me, here's the deal. Siri is 18 months old, and will regularly poop in the house (whenever she can!), and infrequently urinate in the house. She is super sneaky about it, and only does it when we can't see her (if we are in the living room she goes to the bedroom, if we are in the bedroom she goes behind the chair in the living room). Whenever we go outside she urinates immediately, but it routinely takes her 15+ minutes of walking around outside for her to poop. Sometimes multiple trips out of 15+ minutes each time. It is extremely easy to tell when she has to go, but it has to practically be falling out of her before she will concede to going. However, if she has to go and I bring her inside, she will immediately go and poop. Just doesn't seem to want to do it outside. Previously we have done weeks of being super careful to watch her all the time, but as soon as we start giving her any freedom, she backslides and starts going in the house again. We are really REALLY trying to make this work this time. Because holy hell are Ryan and I sick of it. Right now she is on complete lockdown. Either she is in a crate, or on a 6 foot tether at all times. She won't go to the bathroom in the house on a tether. We are planning to do this lockdown for at least a month to see if we can break the habit, but really I don't know where to go from there. How do I start giving her freedom back in a way that won't allow her to backslide? And before anyone asks, she has been tested for a UTI. She had a really bad one many, many months ago, it was treated, and she has had multiple UA/cultures done since then, all of which have come back normal/no infection. If you read this, you deserve a cookie. If you have help for me, well you deserve whatever the hell you want, but what you'll get is my eternal gratitude.
