I've always walked the dogs into the weeds/woods to go potty. (sure is nice not to have to clean up the yard) about a week ago, Hammie refused to go into the usual favorite spot...no big deal, I took him to another area. 2 days ago he has decided he won't go into the weeds at all...or the woods. what??? Soooooo, I just decide he is....the battle of wills is on. I stand there until the poor dog HAS to go, but he whines and waits until he just can't hold it anymore, then runs out of there like he's being chased by the devil. I'm clueless. I did see a snake about a week ago..but I surely didn't think he paid attention to it. that's the only thing different...unless something has been there that he just wants no part of???? any ideas at all? it's just so strange to me, that's all he has known...potty in the woods. (Addie has no problems, so I can't really think it's due to some wild animal or something) I swear...he is such a big baby.
