Question: 
my dog wont go poop out in the snow. i need help to make him go. he has clear spots to go but he wont and i know it cant be comfy for him.
Answer: 

I know that can be distressing for the owner too! You want to make him understand. If he's well housetrained, he will eventually go outside. Maybe get him a sweater or something to keep him warm and make sure he has plenty of room in his clear spot. If you could clear an area in his favorite spot that might help. Disgusting as it sounds, if there's any old poop buried in the snow you might have some luck digging it up and putting it on top of the snow so he'll get the idea. Poor guy. He'll eventually go.
