Aussie Won't Potty... At All
My boyfriend and I adopted a 5 yo female Australian Shepherd this weekend and she refuses to go potty while on leash. We live in an apartment, so we don't have a yard to send her to do her business, and it's not an option to have her off leash. We've tried taking her out for long walks, taking her with the Aussie we've had and alone, waiting her out, taking her out first thing in the morning and right after eating, and taking her out before bed, but she still won't go. She did eliminate in the house yesterday morning when she was out of sight for a few minutes (I know, my mistake, but it was unavoidable), so at least we know she's gone once, but I'm concerned for her health and well-being. Does anyone have advice for getting her to go on leash when we take her out?
