Default too cold to potty

Last night was 0 degrees F. I took Barney out. He would not potty. I took him in and we went to bed.
This morning I took him out. He did pee but ran right back in and will not go out again. He always goes to the bathroom in the morning.
I am concerned about him not going.
He is wearing his thermal and his coat each time I take him out.

BG is doing the same thing. She tells me it freezes before it comes out

Honestly I have pee pads down and I am making her go out in the morning and evening and right before bed and I try not to fall for the cute I don't have to go routine.

Barney has never use pads. He lifts his leg to pee. Last night I walked him all around the yard on a leash but he refused to go.

sonny lifts his leg too but he always goes on the pad. My are trained for both outside and potty pads (the only potty pad issue I have is my Diva wants a new pad after every small piddle with 2 dogs and not being home all day that does not happen)

We had this issue once winter started too! The last couple of days were -10 or so. Moose did not want to potty. I keep taking him out anyway. I have to stand there with him and tell him "go potty" his command. If he doesn't go I take him in and repeat within the hour. He is slowly getting used to it now and will go fast! I do have to shovel out a little area for him.

I tried to introduce the pee pad but he just doesn't get it. He squats to pee but has only known the outside. So we just keep at it. But he sure looks at me pathetically and sad when I tell him it's time to go potty.

He is starting to alert me with a bark. Then I know he really has to go. It's taken awhile though.

I happen to be home today so I have bundled him. I kept his thermal in and added his cost this morning. Now I added sweater over thermal and ten his coat. Success!

I feel for you guys! Definitely keep trips outside super short but frequent in case they don't go the first time.
