Dog had first accident since he was a puppy.

7 posts in this topic

My dog had an accident in the house this morning. First accident since he was a pup he is now a little over 2 years old. Usually I let him out first thing in the morning but it was pouring and I didnt want to bring him in soaking wet so I figured he could make it 15 minutes after I took a shower and could put him in the kennel as I was going to work. He was acting pretty sheepish as I cleaned it up. It may be to late now but how can a person teach a dog to go on the linolium rather then the carpet when they absolutely have to go? Any accident of the 3 types of accidents he's had are always on the carpet.

Hey, I did the same thing on vacation when I had to pee so badly. I only made it as far as the end of the dock and I had to do my business. The end of the dock got a little wet...

When you gotta go, you gotta go sometimes...

I've had that happen with my dogs too - when I've waited too long. Sometimes I missed the signals, especially the pacing back and forth.

I think the best way to train them it to "tell you" - teach them to bark at you when they have to go. I'm not sure if that can work for all dogs, but I have one of mine trained that way. When it's time - he yips at me.

I've got our pup trained to ring a bell that we have by the door when he needs to go out. Works out great, except he's figured that he can ring it whenever he wants to go outside now.

I don't know how you'd train him to go on the linoleum without him thinking that it was okay to pee there all the time.

Someone was telling me that someone they knew had their dog trained to go in the tub when they weren't home. I dont know how they did it, maybe it is just a story. I live in a small cabin and the dog can easily tell me when he needs to go outside. Someday I'm sure ill upgrade houses but he doesnt have accidents at my parents house which is substantial larger then mine. I wasn't very hard on him today since it was my fault and broke the routine. I had him house trained by 12 weeks old with only a handful of accidents since. I guess its just one of the little joys of owning a pet.

If it is just a one time thing I would not worry to much and chalk it up to it being your fault for missing the signs.

If it happens over and over again or, you get home tonight and there have been multiple accidents through out the day, have him checked for a urinary tract infection. The only time Maggie (6.5 years old) my lab has had an accident in the house since she was a puppy was when she had a UTI.

Agreed, nothing to worry about on this. Dog tend to get in routine and are used to going when you get up. He just thought he should have been ouside.

I was about to post a similar question. My 2 1/2 year old springer has had a few accidents in the house also lately. She doesn't even go pee in her kennel outside. The weird thing is that a couple occasions she was laying down because she was wet on the side of her behind. I am going to call the vet in the morning because I think it could be an infection.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
