funny, we had a dog boarding at work with K9 cognitive dysfunction (doggy alzheimers) and a neurological issue, she was fecal, and sometimes urinary incontinent. I don't think anything could have helped the pooping issues, but if she went out with another dog and saw them go, often she would go.
I also thought I'd mention that you shouldn't need to take her out for more then a few minutes, thats a trap, and the dog will learn that they don't need to hurry. My parents think it takes their dog a 20 minute walk to have a bowel movement
I also have many clients that think this, and I think, eventually, it can affect the dog, too, and they'll have trouble going on "short notice". We'll have dogs in hospital, and they get short "in and out" potty breaks every 3-4 hrs; we'll get dogs that'll hold it and hold it and hold it - I wonder if they're so used to taking their time that the don't know how to go when they have just a quick chance.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
