    Default Dog Weeing Inside

    Hi everyone, I am a newbie with a 5yo female Silky X named Coco. I am at my wits end because she often wees, and sometimes poos, inside.

    The story....we moved into a new 3 level home 12 months ago and have a doggy door in the laundry which is on the bottom level. To our delight she took to the doggy door beautifully and was the perfect little dog for about 6 months, at which time she decided the lovely fluffy rug in the rumpus room next to the laundry was much more comfy to stand on to do wees I only realised she was doing this when I stood in it and unfortunately I never have caught her in the act. If I chastised her for doing a "wee on mummy's rug" she would look very guilty and go all sooky. Finally it got to the stage where we had to chuck the rug ... it was in a bad way. Ok...no rug there now for the princess so she decided my brand new "white" lounge would be her next target, not only for wees, but yes, poos look great on a white lounge. At the moment I have the lounge covered in puppy mats and towels and last week alone found three wee patches and a small poo. I find she does this more often in bad weather, God forbid she should get her princess paws wet. We also have a rug on the top loungeroom floor and she has does a few on it as well. She has done none in any carpeted rooms so I guess I can be thankful for small mercies. Also, in our previous home she did the same thing except chose one particular room to do it in.

    Long winded story I know, but would love some advice on this, it's getting past the joke!

    I think you need to go back to basic toilet training.
    Frustrating, I know, but I don't see any other way.

    Thanks for the reply. I did actually do that. I would take her out very early, before I go to work, if I see her sniffing around the rug and late at night. I believe she is doing it when we are out. Using the rug was bad enough but when she started on the lounge

    Is it full puddles or just a small amount?
    How long has she been peeing inside?

    It could be insecurity about the new house, but it isn't really that 'new' anymore..

    Given that you said she use to do it in your old house I would hazzard a guess to saying that she has never really fully grasped the idea od toilet training.
    Like myf said you need to take her back to basics and if she is doing it when you are at work lock her in the laundry so she has access to the doggy door but not the rest of the house.

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!

    Thanks all. She knows she has done wrong because she won't go near the room afterwards and hides under a table. Every time I take her out I say "outside weewee" we walk downstairs together with me saying that all the way. First thing in the morning when she is busting, she flies down the stairs like lightning and straight out the doggy door *sigh* I think locking her in the laundry when we are out is the only option. Thanks again, I appreciate everyone's replies.
