why does my pug pee in the house

I have volunteered to keep 2 pugs for a week while the owner is away. After being walked for a half hour the male pug pees in the house. He has squirted every item in the house must have been affected. HeБs getting neutered next week. Will that help? Hi Irene,
There are 4 basic reasons a dog eliminates in the house. The first is itБs a sign of a medical issue. The obvious is a urinary tract or bladder infection. This is usually a puppy issue but not always. When itБs an older dog that has always been house-clean without major issues and suddenly theyБre eliminating in the house itБs often a pee-mail to the dog owner that thereБs something going on internally that may have nothing to do with an incontinence related ailment. ThereБs very likely something wrong with the dog so always go to the vet. The second reason for household elimination is puppy development or older dogs brought into the household that were never properly housetrained.


Soiling can be kept to a minimum and then extinguished with a little understanding about a puppyБs physical development and some structure throughout a pup or adultБs day. I have it outlined in my free house training cheat sheet, which IБm happy to send to whomever needs it. A third reason is anxiety and if you donБt treat the anxiety, you wonБt solve the house soiling. This is a complicated problem and not, I think related to yours so IБll skip going into it with any detail. What you have is old-fashioned dominance. When a male dog and sometimes a female starts marking up against things as opposed to floor puddles theyБre stating to all concerned, БThis is mine, this is mine and this is mine and this is definitely mine. actually for future reference Б this is my house, everyone else just gets to live here. Б Does neutering help?


Sometimes, but leadership signals work just as well, even better considering the other behavioural benefits youБll enjoy, including a dog more responsive to training. My dog Odie, is not neutered and lives in the house with my sons and me. He has never marked anything in my home because before he even walked into the house (at 2 years of age) I made it clear just who was the teacher and who was the student. I made him get out of the truck my way, walk to the house my way (sort of), wait at the bottom of the stairs, popped him right in the crate, let him get his bearings, let him out but ever since dragging a leash so I could supervise him. Every rush at the door, attempt to swipe something off the counter, touch something not for him etc I was on him like Charlie Sheen on a plea bargain. It was exhausting but better then cleaning up Belgian Malinois pee-mail all over the house. I donБt think it would be enter his mind.


Embrace these two rules, БIf a dog canБt be caught, it canБt be taughtБ and БIf you canБt see, then he can pee. Б Get a leash on him and use a crate when you canБt. Pawsitively yours, My pug is peeing in the house again. He is 2 years old. He's peeing in the bedrooms of my house. I'm pretty sure he was potty trained when he came to us. When we get home, he always gets let out, and he always has food and fresh water in his bowls. Is it that were not paying attention to him like less then before? or is it that he needs to be let out more often? We also sometimes come home and it smells because, he either had diarria or he puked a little. I don't know. If its pue should I feed him less food than right now? or should I make him stay in specific areas of the house? I don't know but i would like so advice on this problem. Thank you! Carlos and Frannie!
