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.

    • Youtube is the way to go. So many cool little self filmed fishing shows on there. Heck I have a channel myself where I record my fishing trips. Uncut angling is cool, I also like Peelindrag because he is out of Michigan like me. Screw those commercial filled, cheesy scripted fishing shows on tv. Times have changed in my opinion.
    • Krylon and Rustoleum both have aerosol primers for plastic.  
    • I had the fasteners they recommended but it still needs to be filled to prevent floating . I don't recall what spacing I used but was told later I did every thing correct except for the water .
    • I bought my first house almost exactly a year ago and am looking to put it in a garden which is kind of a new adventure for me. Since I don't have the best soil in my yard, I am thinking I am going to build some raised garden beds out of some 2x12s. I am looking for some suggestions on this. Is 12" of soil deep enough? Any do's or don'ts from people that have done this before?   I've never done a solo garden before, so I am kind of in uncharted territories. I want to make some salsa and possibly pasta sauce so what all should I grow? Tomatoes and peppers are on the list... what else?   I'm located in Duluth so temp/thaw wise, we are at least a week or 2 behind the metro still.

    • I think he just got triple owned, I just scored a ton of points in my imaginary troll game. YES!!!!  
    • I am making some bluebird houses out of PVC.  They need to be white.  I have painted some with Zinser primer but it doesn't adhere very well.  Any idea what I should do to get the paint to stick?   Thanks for your time.   Tom
    • I don't think Trump can do that much damage in 4 years, if he makes it that long.
    • Phony politicians of all stripes have reversed their position on the fence numerous times, since it is just a political football that is typically dropped once the election is over.     One of the obstacles is land ownership, and we are supposedly a nation of laws that stands for the right to own property.     In 2007, as the Bush administration was extending the fence, it sent letters to property owners threatening to sue them if they did not “voluntarily” hand over their rights to their land. The letters offered no compensation for the use of the land. Some intimidated property owners signed the letters thinking that they had no recourse. Others refused, and the governmentsued them for access. Although the government can—and did—attempt to use eminent domain to seize property from landowners, the lawsuits took years to complete (7 years in one case), causing substantial delays. DHS’s Inspector General (IG) concluded in 2009 that “acquiring non-federal property has delayed the completion of fence construction,” and that “CBP achieved [its] progress primarily in areas where environmental and real estate issues did not cause significant delay.” The IG report again: For example one landowner in New Mexico refused to allow CBP to acquire his land for the fence. The land ownership predated the Roosevelt easement that provides the federal government with a 60-foot border right-of-way. As a result, construction of fencing was delayed and a 1.2-mile gap in the fence existed for a time in this area. CBP later acquired this land through a negotiated settlement. The IG found more than 480 cases in which the federal government negotiated the “voluntary” sale of property, and up to 300 cases in which condemnation would be sought through the courts. Because the right of just compensation is protected by the Constitution, there is little Donald Trump or Congress can do to expedite these issues. A related issue is the impact on tribal lands. Although technically owned by the federal government, tribal lands are held in trust for Indian tribes, which federal law recognizes as distinct, independent, political entities. The Tohono O’odham Nation, which has land on both sides of the border, hasalready pledged to fight the Trump administration on building a wall there. In 2007, the tribe agreed to allow the construction of a vehicle barrier on their land, but the Bush administration then waived laws that protect tribal burial grounds, and during construction, human remains were dug up. If the tribe refuses to cooperate, the Trump administration would need a stand-alone bill from Congress condemning the land. Even on federal lands, it can take months to get various agencies to agree to allow Border Patrol to move forward on various projects. In 2010, two-thirds of patrol agents-in-charge told the Government Accountability Office that under land management laws, the interagency compliance process had delayed or limited access to portions of some federal lands. Some 54 percent said that they were unable to obtain responses to requests for permission to use the lands in a timely manner. In one case, it took nearly 8 months for Border Patrol to get permission to install a single underground sensor. Only 15 percent, however, said that these issues adversely impacted the overall security in their areas.
