I have a Yorkie and he is 3 years old and trained to go outside. He started to pee in my house, what could be wrong? Please help me.

I know it's not popular, but house training can all be solved by following the same plan, long walks (at least 3/4 mile each) at least 3 times a day with a few quicker pee breaks in between. Your schedule must be maintained and you will have no problems neutered or not.
Exercised dogs are happy and tired dogs who sleep when you're not home. They get socialized by your long, leashed walks/jogs through the neighborhood and completely "empty out" pee and poop by the time you're done. You'll quickly notice how some dogs will poop right at certain distances. They need the physical movement of walking to get things moving.
You can go from untrained to trained in a day by following this and having regular feeding times morning and night with snacks for training rewards in between. It doesn't matter what size your dog is; we all need lots of regular exercise to be healthy and feel good.
You also need to thoroughly clean anyplace your dog may have gone in your home with enzyme based cleaners to truly get rid of any scent left behind. (12/05/2009)
Have a Vet check your dog. Could be an infection in the urinary tract. When there are any changes in a dog's behavior it's because there is an underlying problem. (12/11/2009)
