Dog won't go in backyard and will go poop inside.
(San Diego, California)
I have a 5 year old Schnauzer. I have had him since he was a puppy. I can't get him to stop going to the bathroom in the house, mostly poop. The peeing has stopped for the most part. We have a doggy door. In the mornings he does not rush outside, I have to coax him out there. He will go pee and then come inside and go poop! I have put a gate on the stairs preventing him from going up there since that is where he liked to go poop. I take him for a walk every evening and he relieves himself. He used to run out into the backyard before we moved, now he won't.
I am desperate!
