Customer Question

We have a maltese rescue dog which is a perfect little fellow all day long but seldom moves his bowels on his walks out side on a leash. We live in a wooded area with a lot of squirrels which he wants to chase. So we keep him on a leash all the time for fear that he will run off into the woods and get lost.
Every evening he starts to chase his tail and then start running madly all through the house for about 10 minutes after which he will poop on the floor. How can we break him of this?
