Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible.....

So she'll go to the bathroom out in front, but not in the back yard?

Is there a reason she needs to use the back yard now?

How long has she been with you now?

When was the last time she used the bathroom?

Is there a possibility something outside could have startled her?
