Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Dogs wont go to certain part of yard   Sun Jun 22, 2014 8:27 am

For the past 3 days, none of my 4 dogs will willingly go to certain part of the yard. I can lure them there with treats no problem. Now this was a normal bathroom spot which I keep very clean. They will go around it but refuse to go threw it without being coerced. One of my huskies Zoey, also has starting going potty on my patio. The only thing that has changed recently is I switched them all to Blue Wilderness about 2 weeks ago. They act completely normal otherwise. I'm at a loss as this all 4 of my dogs. The spot of grass has had no added chemicals or weed killer of any kind. The only noticeable difference is the grass is slightly taller in the this area.
Does anyone have any ideas? I also did look for something similar before I posted this and if I missed a post please let me know.

Thanks,
Chad

It's an oddity for sure and I'm not certain it's breed specific, but my two boys do the exact same thing on a specific walk we take down the road from my house. At one location they stop and start to make a half circle into the road trying to stay clear of this patch of grass. I've gone back multiple times alone to see if there was anything there- nothing. It's close to a utility box and I know there are underground wires along the road, my only conclusion is it has something to do with electricity and the dogs are picking up on it.

You may want to look into that.

I have looked into that as we are getting a fence in the next couple of weeks. They say there is nothing in my backyard, all of my utilities are in the front of the house.
Thanks for the response.

Update,

So I had to mow my yard yesterday and afterwards all of the dogs started going back there. I have no idea what caused it. After I got done mowing I looked carefully at that area and I didn't see anything at all that was out of the ordinary.
