Dog Pooping Inside After Neutering?

I have a 15 month old Lab mix. He has only gone #2 one time inside since I got him. He was only 3 months then and had been outside. He picked up quickly on house training. He started peeing on things when he got his "boy parts", however.

About a month ago he got out and disappeared for a few days (there was a dog in heat in the neighborhood). He was usually good about staying in the yard until then. During the time he was gone, he got into a neighbor's field and mauled one of his sheep. So he's been on a lead when he goes out since then.

I had him fixed about a week after the incident. When he came home, he pooped by the door. I didn't get angry because I hadn't let him out yet and he needed to go. But now, he won't go outside at all. I let him out for no less than 30 minutes when he goes out. He pees outside just fine, but as soon as he comes in he goes to one of 2 spots and poops. This has been going on 3 weeks now. I'm doing my best to retrain him, but I'm at my wits end with him. He won't go if I'm watching, and he won't go in any area of his lead. Any tips? Pointers? Help!

I have a bad dog too that I now have to put on a lead at all times. If I don't he will escape my yard and run up and down the river. When he is on his lead he will only go pee. He can hold his poop for days on end until I let him off his lead. It is hard to understand this one and it just seems dogs don't like to poop on a lead.

You might need to start taking him on walk and let him poop on his walks. This will get him use to being on the lead in your yard and he will start pooping there again.

I'm thinking something might have happened to him when he pooped outside, and now he won't anymore. You might have to resort to puppy pads.
