Default Boos a squealer! What to do?

Ok so I put Boo out the back to go toilet, leave him a few mins then go back out to get him, when I lift him, not every time, but a lot of the time he starts squealing!
It's loud and high pitched and I'm afraid of neighbours thinking he's being beaten, cos that's wat it sounds like when he does it. He also might wee a little.

So should I ignore his squel and carry on lifting him in calmly OR should I put him down when he does it and come back when he's relaxed??

Or any other ideas??

And before any one says, he has been vet checked recently, there is nothing wrong with him, I do believe he's being dramatic! Sugar behaves similarly sometimes.

I would ignor it and take him in the house, try not to have a reaction at all. Just pray the neighbors don't turn you in. My oldest dog screams out with pain , she is on pain meds but that is how she sounds, I hate even taking her for a walk, but so far we have not been turned in.

I was thinking ignoring him would prob be best ye, it's just frustrating! The thing is as well when I'm going to get him he's at the back door wagging his tail and when I walk out he's wagging his tail and circling my feet, it's not like he's scared of me! And I can pick him up when he's inside with no problem, it seems it's just when he's outside :/

Seems like he is unhappy with being picked up by the door. Can he get inside by himself? If not, well then maybe I'd have a really neat treat in my hand when he got picked up.? He'd be busy eating it, while you got him inside.

See he could but he won't, like he will be waiting at the door to come in until I open it then he starts running about in circles, I hav to go out to get him every time cos wen I stand and call him he just wags his tail and keeps running in circles till I go get him! My other two come in as soon as I call them in.

Thanks for the suggestion I will try the treat idea! I also tried today going out and sitting down in the garden chairs and picking him up from there wen he ran up to me, it worked fine, so far anyway! But the prob with that is if it's been raining the chairs will be soaking lol

Hmm, could you try bringing a little treat to offer him to reward him for going outside? The moment he takes it into his mouth, then pick him up.

ETA Haha sorry, I was too slow posting there and didn't see it had been suggested! =D

Now that I read your response about him running in circles, that is exactly what my girl SUshi used to do! She'd bounce around in circles wagging her tail, acting all bashful and playful but wouldn't approach the door by herself. I solved the problem by openeing the door, using our "Inside!" command; and the moment she did her spinny prancy thing INSTEAD of coming in right away, I'd close the door and walk away for 5 minutes. Repeat! Open the door, say "Inside!" wait a moment for him to respond. If once again, he won't come him, close the door again and come back later. Keep treats inside by the door and ONLY reward when he finally makes it in on his own. It takes time and diligence, but dogs get stuck in routines VERY easily; so if he's already used to playing his little game of running and wagging and having you lift him, he's likely to keep doing it until you're able to 'break' his cycle. =) Once he's broken that hurdle of running through the doorway when you call, it will only get easier and easier! I promise... Sushi did it for weeks; but once she finally learned she "could" cross through, she does it like a charm now, wagging and happily bouncing. Then she comes inside and spins and dances, but we praise her for that hehe. Hope that helps and sorry for all the rambling above!

Do you warn him first before picking him up? Say something like, Come on, let's go inside. Could you leave the door ajar until he comes in? I'd like to see a video of this if you could get one. It makes no sense to me if the other two dogs come in, why he doesn't. He definitely sounds like a drama queen, but there also seems to be a reason why he's acting this way. Like something's got him spooked.

Oh ye I talk away to him wen I go to lift him everytime, I say things like "come on wee man are u ready to come in?", but he will still give out!
It's not every single time I lift him though as I say, maybe 80% of the time though.
Leaving the door open until he comes in isn't really an option as its so cold here now and I do believe he would take his time about it! I wouldn't be happy about letting all the heat out of the house just because a dog is being dramatic and doesn't want to be lifted!
I could try take a video yes when I have time next, at the min it's lashing rain here though!
