Dog had first accident since he was a puppy.

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Most everyone on this site has been in the coroner at least twice, especially if they have been around for 10 years plus. I know I've been and I still have the same name since 2002-even though the date shows 2006, why I don't know.
    • Nope can't say I have been sick. I visit my parents in the old folks home so maybe that will be a good test. I may need to find another chunk of two to last me the winter. I kinda enjoy being in the woods and looking for it.
    • Make sure you use shielded cable vs wiring rca ends onto standard 16 gauge wire other wise you will have interference from your other 12 and 120 volt wiring.  More insulation = less btus needed. At the very least I would spray the floor. Going to want to go 30k if you aren’t going to spray foam the walls Depends on location. 30” is optimal. If on the side of the house versus back, I would go 24” because the are nicer to sit on. I have a 36” for my fold down top bunk and it works well to sleep my 7 & 8 year old Are they nice? Yes. Are they a nessecity? No. I don’t have one and moisture has never been an issue. The only prob I have is cooking bacon in the house.... I love bacon but when u cook it in the house it lingers for days, but not sure the vent would totally solve this LED!!!!! You need to decide whether you’re going to have a generator and how long you want to run it. If you think that you’re going to constantly run a generator then you probably want to have more 120 V lights in the last 12 V lights. If you’re not going to run a generator that often or not at all then you would want to cut down in the number of 120 V lights.  Three way switches are in valuable within a fish house. Being able to switch on the entire bank of lights by the door and also by the rear bunk is very nice when you hear the rattle real go off in the middle of the night. I have three double pancake LED lights in my house that can be switched on and off individually one light or too light per fixture. I then ran the input power through a three way switch so that I can shut each light down individually or shut the whole works off as one. Hall lights are also very important, we used LED Leison plate lights and they work awesome
    • Been sick at all since starting to use it?  Friends of mine have been using it for a few years religiously for one reason or another.  They keep a jug of it next to the coffee pot.
    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.
