After my son dog sat for 5 days Sammie will only poop on walks

No amount of treats seems to work- at 10 months he now holds his poops for morning walks- even after tsking him out every 15 minutes til 1130 am one day! Very dominant- Should I worry about this or wait til he has no choice in a Colorado snowstorm but go inthe yard?

When Minnie got 7-9 months, she would not do her business in our garden anymore.

Do not you go with him at least in the morning and afternoon ??

It's not enough for an active working dog to be in the garden, they require activity and use their brains.

I do not think your Sheltie is dominant, it's not in their nature. On the contrary, they would like to cooperate.

Sorry my bad english.
My 1. Sheltie (tricolor - born 10 July 14)
Excuse my bad English !!!
