take the dog out ON LEASH to poop in the dark. Get a flashlight if you want. Stand in one spot and encourage him to do your poopie (or whatever). When he does, immediately praise like there's no tomorrow and give him a treat (which you'll take with you). Give it to him after praise, right there on the spot.

If he doesn't poop, keep him on leash, bring him in and keep him tethered to you so you can watch him. At the first sign of his having to "go," its back outside on the leash as above.

Good luck.
