Yep, he's already seen the vet and was all clear. The vet was telling me that he's just being "funny about his business" and said he's A-okay, just that it's gas due to new food without a transition period. Stool was clear, no blood, or mucous, or worms/parasites.
I'm still keeping a close eye on him because he was eating and throwing up grass. He's happy now and less anxious and started eating again.
Just an insecure pooper, so I will start with training in different enclosed areas with the 15ft lead. He's such as mess lol.
I swear, I was this . Close to giving him an enema because I thought he could've been constipated because he refused to poop for 24-30 hours. I worked at a vets office for several years so I have experienced some very odd situations with pets! However, because everything else was ruled out I was starting to get nervous! I tend to go into panic over-drive when it's my own pets lol.

i dunno, i'd be worried. stress can bring on both bloat and torsion, and the symptoms aren't always the same. the eating grass and vomiting worries me too. i truly think a vet visit is in order.
ps...please re-think the "stubborn" issue, dogs do not have that human emotion. dogs operate primarily upon instinct. no stubborn or getting even or vindictive in the dog brain.
again, i'd be real concerned. hope i'm overreacting and that it's just an upset tummy from stress.

It's difficult providing medical advice over a forum.

Can you try a longer leash? Maybe it's too close and he feels insecure? How about a long walk. That always gets my guys pooping!!!
