How to train an adult dog to relieve inside instead of outside.

Hello; I have a 2 y/o Corgi of which never had any trouble in holding it until it is time for the four daily walks of which he relieves himself outside on park or sidewalk grass.
Just a bit of background information: I live in a countryside. The majority of people here have close minded beliefs and due to a certain religion they fanatically follow, they really hate dogs.

Recently on our walk, my dog got attacked by kids and young teenagers in our neighborhood. We have no choice but to run, fighting back will only bring much more trouble. To further aggravate the situation, the land owner threatens me that if I was taking the dog outside ever again I will have to give up the dog or move out entirely.

Moving out is not an option for now, but for the mean time I gravely need to train my dog to poo and pee on my bathroom instead. I am completely clueless on how to coerce him to do that.

He's been holding it in for almost 30 hours already and it really, really breaks my heart to see him struggling unnecessarily like this.
I tried to leash him inside the bathroom for 20 minutes but he is not cooperating.
Then I tried to stand with him (I'm holding the leash) on the bathroom for 30 minutes straight but he's still not relieving himself.
Afterward I tried to make a small enclosure inside the bathroom with the collapsible fence and put him inside it. Still not working.

I need help. Thank you for reading this.

So...your saying your dog is not allowed to be outside? Would it possible for you to carry it farther away from the house? I would think that he would have to go so bad he would just go by now...
Maybe you could bring some grass in and put it on the floor of the bathroom just to let him know it is okay. He probally till wont want to go, but I would say it is worth a try. Hope he decides to go. Oh, dont forget to be REALLY REALLY happy and reward your dog A LOT if/when he finnaly goes.
Hope he does it soon ☺

Hi. I've tried bringing my dog outside just a little bit from the house-- 4 times already each for 10 minutes with 2 hours interval. There's a small patch of grass just in front of the house before the area becomes public (so it is safe since it is still considered an area of my property) yet he's still not relieving himself.


I... have no idea about the bringing grass inside the bathroom. How would one do that exactly? Just pick a whole bunch of grass and throw those on the bathroom corner or something?

Someone I knew suggests that I try the Nature's Miracle House Breaking spray. Seems pretty useful at a glance. Does the product work though? If purchased, I will spray it on the drain corner of my bathroom or on the patch of grass directly outside my house.

If this was me I would....
Keep using the patch of grass he will get it
Make sure you stand there long enough and keep going back out if necessary
I've heard mixed reviews about that stuff but it might be worth a shot

Thank you for your insight.

I'll try to take him out onto the grass again in every 2 hours interval. I do wait for 10 minutes each time but he's not yet convinced.

He relieves on the floor just an hour ago and he looked really sad. Not reprimanding him of course, but thinking about it now I shouldn't give him a piece of the chicken too to cheer him up...

Anyway I'm throwing some pieces of newspaper soaked with his urine outside on the grass, hopefully it will help convincing him that it is the preferred spot from now on.

That is a great idea with the newspaper!
