I have a strange question for you. Several weeks ago I took Miss Nala out to her potty patch at night. She was on her leash and I had a flash light. We do this all the time with no problem. The yard is fenced in, but huge and very dark at night so I don’t just let her go out there off leash at night.
So....while I was in the patch something hopped over my foot and I let out a horrific scream. Nala’s hair stood on end and she pulled back to the house.
Ever since then she refuses to go out at night to potty. I thought it would pass, but it isn’t. Thank goodness it is summer and stays light out longer, but she still needs to go before we go to bed.
Last night I got her out the door with some treats. She understands everything I say, so she knows I want her to pee. She is scared and doesn’t go far at all until she is pulling so hard to go back. To the point of choking herself.
Any advice to help her out?
Thanks for any help,
Christine & Miss Nala
