Default dog takes a long time to relieve himself

Hi,

I've recently moved from a place that did not allow dogs so I was forced to keep my miniature schnauzer indoors all the time. He was trained to relieve himself in a dog litter box lined with those plastic/cloth pads. Where i am living now does allow dogs. For the most part i think he is house trained, he dosent urinate indoors. The first two days we moved in he would poo in the corner of the bedroom when i left for work, but now i shut the door and he no longer poos.

However when i walk him he usually urinates right away, but he takes atleast 15 minutes to poo now. i think it's because he knows that he has to go back in once he poos, but im not really sure.

Any tips woudl be greatly apreciated!

Sometimes it takes some physical activity before they get the "urge," so it might help if you play with him and get him to run around a bit.

And they do figure out that once they've done the deed, the fun's over and it's back inside, so start staying outside for a few minutes after he's finished, then give him a treat and big pets right after he comes back in to reinforce that coming inside isn't the end of the fun.
