Default Refusing to pee in a certain spot??

Ok, so we started to take oakley to pee in this one area that used to be a flower bed, but no longer is...

he was totally fine, and would go there...except sometimes at night...he REFUSED...he would plant his feet, and i would have to pick him up and put him in the area...and then he would sometimes go in the very corners (that was the only area where the light was...if that has anything to do with it)

this was a month or two ago...and up until recently, he has been pretty okay with it...

but now he is doing it again...he refuses to go potty in that area...during the day now too...he will just stand there, sniffing the air, but wont go, and then tries to pull me across the driveway to my neighboor's property.

somedays, i get so frustrated, or am way too tired to wait, so i let him go there...escpecially since there is this big ol patch of dirt, so he isnt harming grass...


but why on earth is it even an issue?? he KNOWS that is his potty place...a lot of times he is pulling my arm out of my socket to get there to pee...and other times, he wont even step in it...

it makes no sense to me whatsoever...

Do you think maybe Oakley was used to the flowers in the flowerbed? & now that the flowers are gone maybe Oakley feels that he can go wherever he wants.

How dirty is it? I know if I don't scoop the poop enough, Zeus won't use his potty spot.

Is it grassy or dirt? If there isnt enough grass maybe that has something to do with it.

well its not grassy, its dirt covered by mulch...the point was not to burn the grass, and he was perfectly fine peeing there...and still is...sometimes...

he rarely poops there...so its not dirty at all...and its a big enough space, i mean like, its prob like 6ft by 4ft??? i have no idea...im bad at measurements
