It didn't tonight when I checked it. The other night it did and I gave him a gas-x, let him out, he pooped and all was well, that was at 1:30am though. We just did a 20 minute amble and sniff walk in the parking lot of the NFL/MLB stadiums (they're back to back and share a lot) which apparently wore him out completely. He usually poops on walks and I'd hoped that would happen but no dice tonight. He's passed out now on the couch, which is good. He tried to hump me with a vengeance earlier and I am over it!
We do tricks and "find it" games inside and are playing 101 things to do with a box. He's ridiculously food motivated, even for low value treats, so while that works, it also amps him. The nice thing about his walks are that he can explore and move on and the reinforcer for "more More MORE MOARRR!" isn't there. I think the parking lot will be a good place for awhile, as long as games aren't scheduled obviously. We can go at night, it's fairly empty yet well lit and maintained and we don't have to stay on a path so we can go back to the car whenever, as opposed to a out-and-back trail.
