4 Year Old Dog Peeing on Floor

My 4 year old Shihpoo is peeing all over the floor. We let her out regularly and try to keep her busy and exercised. She will pee when we are home and when we are out. I don't know what to do anymore. We have bought a crate and have been using it a bit, but my dog is so anxious that she just digs and pants while in there for hours on end.


Please help.

Always start by taking to the vet. You need to rule out a UTI or bladder infection. Also tell the vet that she is anxious. It may be a nervous disorder and he may need to prescribe her something to calm her down. Even though you take her out regularly, try taking her out more often.

Maybe the dog has a urinary problem that is causing her to do this. By the time she is 4 years old, she should be able to go several hours without having to pee. I would suggest having a vet look at her and make sure she doesn't have any type of urine infection.


As for the peeing all the time in the home, you'll need to let her out every hour on the hour and make sure you stay with her and she pees outside. You can also try confining her to a smaller area of your home and make sure it has tile so it is easy to clean.

Your dog wasn't raised in a crate and this will be hard on her. They get very nervous when they are confined to a small crate. If you put her in this crate, make sure you do this the right way. If you force her in she will be scared and not want to go near the crate. A lot of people use treats to bribe the dog to go inside the crate.

If this is a new problem, consult the vet. She could have an illness, infection or reaction to food that is making her incontinent.

Retrain a dog.

Step 1


Step 2
Tether him to you so you can catch him before he goes.

Take him outside let him finish and then treat them as needed.
