My dog just will not go to the toilet while on a leash. I take her out in the morning and 3-4 times during the evening (once before bed). She constantly whines - and when I mention going outside she gets really excited. However, she just will not urinate outside. She instead does it in her kennel while I'm out for the day.
I've recently moved from a house which had a fenced backyard and a few other dogs for her to play with to an apartment with a dog park and many places, including trees, for her to sniff out and use - but it seems nature just isn't running its course here.
When we go outside, she tends to stand or sit right next to me and rarely sniffs around even though there are many 'dog spots' to indicate this is the bathroom. I'm looking for tips on how I can key her in that it's better to go out here than in the place she has to stay for 8 hours a day.
My dog is a 4 year old dachshund.
