Fence Not Helping

So we had a fence built so Bacari could poop w/out supervision. Guess what- I am still leashing him and taking him out to poop IN THE FENCED BACK YARD. What the heck? Any ideas on how we can fix this?- I am not really interested in standing out there for what seems like hours as he circles and circles, looking for the perfect spot. Bless his heart (this is where we southerners can say anything and it's OK)- he is scared to poop by himself. He just will hold it, come back in and then leave us a surprise the next day. I have tried to go w/ him off lead. He refuses to do anything. He eventually sits down and stairs at me. Help- suggestions- I am likely to freeze out there before he does his duty.

Poor guy. Try putting a regular leash on him and attach the flexi to it. Walk with him and when he is not looking, undo the flexi from the regular leash. Let him drag the leash but walk with him so he thinks you are still attached. Eventually make the space between you and him farther and farther. Then once he's on the other side of the yard and sees you away from him and doesn't freak, you cn start just taking him out on the regular lead and dropping it until he is comfortable. Hopefully he will then realize he's ok. Do this all gradually until he's confident to go out on his own. Rodney:) should help matters too. B will eventually realize that his pal is having fun wondering around and he won't need his Mom to be there.

Found a fix to this issue- since it stresses me to do this and Bacari senses that- I am the problem. He'll poop for Scott w/ no hesitation. So mark one thing off my list of things to do- Scott takes Bacari to potty before bed.

This could not have worked out better
