    Default Not needing to pee, No pain

    I generally have to push Bruin from where ever he is laying, through the kitchen to the door and down the stairs to go pee. It never seems like he NEEDS to go out. He's not in pain, he's not showing any distress. He doesn't drink a whole lot but still drinks and eats...he just never seems like he needs to pee. Once he's outside he will definitely pee and poop and he's not in pain when he's doing it. It's almost like he's just too lazy to go pee. I just don't get it. He's been like this for awhile but I'm getting so sick of literally making him go outside. Treats don't work either. treats don't make him do anything, he's so not food driven. So I decided to wait and see how long he goes until he lets us know he needs to go out (he does let us know, he uses the poochie bells when he needs to go). Its been almost 24 hours since he's pee'd and 17 hours since he's pooped. I read somewhere that the less active they are, the less they need to 'go'. Anyone know what his issue is, if he even has an issue?

    Charlotte never wants to go out. She'll hold it forever if we let her...It's not this extreme, we don't have to "drag" her out, but she definitely would never ask.

    Our boxer is the same. I do have to drag her out when it is raining as she HATES the rain (go figure we live in Seattle). She would explode before having an accident in the house so we always have to remember to let her out.

    Hmmmmm.... I would not allow this to happen only because holding it would cause a UTI... Maybe a walk together or a car ride would liven things up. I would be concerned that there is an underlying issue with the prolonged laziness....

    A walk would be awesome if he wasn't so darn lazy...When he gets outside he goes to the bathroom but then b lines for the door. As soon as he's done he RUNS back inside. So I know he's physically capable of moving fast. My boyfriend suggested that maybe he realizes the grass makes him itchy so he hates to go out....hmmm??? Perhaps?
