Doggy Doo...my 2 year old Rottweiler

My 2 year old Rottweiler has recently taken to urinating and pooing on the pavement right near the back door. She was previously happy to use the lawn and garden and I'm not sure why this has changed. She is regularly walked and has had no other changes in her routine. I have tried spraying the area with Citronella Oil and "Dog Off" from the pet store. Any ideas...
Answer: Doggy Doo...
My inital thoughts is that something has freaked her out, or hurt her while in the back yard doing her business. I don't know why! That's just what popped in to my head. Regardless the best approach may be to take her in to the yard on a lead with a hand full of treats and a voice box full of praise. The second she does a drop of wee or similar go really over the top with praise, pats, treats etc. Completly over the top! Make such a big fuss of it. It may take a while although persistance should be the key. Once she assoicates her 'functions' with such wonderful rewards she should utalise the areas again. I LOVE Rottis!
