    First is he neutered? Are all your other dogs neutered or has anyone else started marking? Is he actually urinating or is it marking to claim.. This is mine...in a house full of dogs it's a common thing! Is it possible there's a female in heat nearby? Lots of possibilities. Belly bands will most definitely help solve the marking but still finding out why would be better.

    I have a baby girl English bulldog. She is a week shy of being 1y6m. When she was little everyone said to try and potty train her with the pee pads. She only peed on them a few times, and the rest of the time she'd rip them up like it was a toy or something. Ever since then we caught her squatting on area rugs, etc. She gets crated every single night for bed time and whenever we leave the house, and has since day one (we got her at 8wks old). I went through a time of a few months where I took big blankets and cut them into smaller pieces for her to have something in the lay on at night. I eventually got sick of washing them because she would pee on it and lay in it. So I started just having her lay on the plastic bottom tray of the crate with no blanket. She hasn't peed in there since. We never did any official dog obedience training (which I'd still love to be able to do at some point sooner than later).

    Welcome, Roberta! I agree with Jo-Anne. Any time a trustworthy dog starts having accidents the first step should be a vet visit to rule out physical causes. There are quite a few things that could cause it, and of course a UTI is at the top of the list. If he checks out okay then I'd start wondering if something outside scared him, and now he's reluctant to go back out.

    Hi, did you have him checked out by a vet? He could have a uti (urinary tract infection).

    Thanks Pawz4me for taking the time. You are lucky your Yogi can go outside anytime but us up north is not easy in the winter. We still have a few months before the winter and we hope by then she might go back to her old habits

    My 4 yr old boy has suddenly started going in the house. Nothing has changed in his routine. He has a fenced in yard open to him at all times through a doggie door he is one of 5 dogs, he is the only shih tzu. They all grew up together and sleep and play together. Never any tension. I have no idea what is going on in his little mind, he seems to know that he did wrong. Help

    You might want to try a belly band on him - the boys usually accept them quickly. I think we have folks here who use them.

    He was vet checked, very healthy. I’m beginning to think he’s lazy. He is not an active dog

    Our Molly was 2 on June 4th. She's very well house trained & has no “accidents” in the house. We trained Molly from the start to still do her business inside the house on a training pad & also outside as we take her for daily walks. However, we moved about 1 month ago & although we set her up with the training pad (we kept one that she had used) in one of our bathrooms she has used it a couple of times but now refuses to do so & holds it in for over 24 hours until we bring her out for a walk & them she's ok with outside. As our winters get very, very cold we would like to keep the habit of the training pad in the house. We've tried making her stay on the pad for 5-10 min but she still refuses to go. We think the couple of times she did in her new place is because she couldn't hold it any longer & we happened to be in the bathroom with her. We want her to be happy in our new place & keep the habit of doing her business inside & outside. Besides the above problem Molly seems to enjoy the new place, she is playfull, eats/drinks well and sleeps with us like before Does anyone have any idea how to handle this? /Thank you for your help.

    The same thing happened to us -- at our previous house Yogi would both use a pee pad when needed and go outside when it was convenient. We moved three years ago and he never used a pee pad after that. At this house he's always wanted to go outside. For us it's no big deal other than the rare times we're gone for a long time. Our climate is fairly mild, so weather isn't a huge issue. So I don't have any advice, but I wanted to let you know that Molly isn't alone in that bit of doggy weirdness. And I wouldn't make her hold it. That might trigger a UTI or other health issue. It's really not good for her at all.
