Default Help with housetraining - sort of...

Hi all

This is my first time to your forum and I am also a first time pet owner, well my wife and I. We have a fairly new mixed breed that we saved from a shelter. She is approx. 6 months old and has been doing OK with crate training. We had her to the point where she usually lets us know when she needs to go outside. We would take her on the leash to her spot in the woods and she usually knows what to do. The problem came sbout when we had the yard fenced in. On nice days we will leave the back door open and she can come in and out as she wishes. She never "goes" inside the house under these circumstances, however, how do we get her to continue to go to her spot in the woods when she is running free rather than wherever in the yard she wishes. I would rather not have landmines around the yard. We tried to continue to take her on the leash to do her business but she still is going wherever she wants in the yard while she is free. i have actually had times when I took her on the leash and she wouldnt go...until minutes later when she was out in the yard again. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
