This is my first time using a forum, so not sure if I am doing this right, but I really don't know what to do. I have a beautiful miniature dachshund named Slinky. She is 16 weeks old, and we have had her since she was 7 weeks old. She is very smart and a quick learner. Super playful and all round a great dog
We had her toilet trained at about 10 weeks old (we live in an apartment, and she goes on the balcony - We have also installed a doggy door which she knows how to use, and when we are home we leave the balcony doors open, even in this cold weather!).
Over the last week, she has started pee-ing wherever she wants. I have taken her to the vet, and the vet says there is nothing wrong, it is just behavioural. What would cause her to start doing this though? She is very loved, but knows we are the alpha dog. Today she peed on my doona, while I was under it... Just stood there and peed!
I am just after some advice/ ideas on how I can train her out of this. Up until now, it hasn't been a problem. But she needs to know this is not on.
She had her third shots last Sunday, so as of tomorrow I am able to walk her, but up until now this hasn't been an option. The vet told me not to.
Has this happened to you? Is it a breed thing?
Many thanks in advance!
