However, while she was struggling with soft stools, she developed the habit of just going anywhere she felt like ... on the sidewalk, on the foot path, just anywhere. Before the raw diet she would at least find a patch of dirt or grass.

Any ideas on how I get her to go back to her old habit of finding a patch of grass or dirt, preferably to the side of the sidewalk or footpath? Oh, and you should know that we live in a very dog friendly town with great access to trails so Lady spends most of her time off leash when we are out.
Your dog is not going try and find a good spot to poop when she has diarrhea . You need to help your dog get better , you should call the vet up and see what they say about she having soft stools. The raw food and pumpkin may be to much for your dog to handle.
