Adult Dog Started Peeing Inside?

My 4 year old Goldendoodle is peeing in the house, all of a sudden. He is peeing in the same spot and it has happened three days in a row. He is acting and eating normally. The only change that has occurred is that we recently watched a friend's lab. The dog has been gone for a few days, but I'm not sure if that had any correlation to my dog peeing in the house suddenly. Any insight or help with this situation would be greatly appreciated :)

I think the change in schedule has set your dog off. Make sure you clean the spot with an enzyme cleaner like Nature's Miracle, or else he will keep coming back to it. If it continues, see the vet. He may have a urinary tract infection.

Poor pup! It could be that the other dog is stressing him into marking his house against the other dog.

I will tell you that in 9 of the 10 times my boy has accidents inside, he has a urinary tract infection or bladder stones, so best to take a pee sample to the vet (or bring him in however your vet does it) and get it checked.


Post back with an update! Prayers for healing if it is health issue.

Definitely because of the recent doggie sitting. Your dog is doing nothing abnormal. I will bet the other dog left some urine drops in the spot and your dog is just taking back charge of his territory.
As the other answer suggested, you will have to use the enzyme to remove all of the urine and this may take more than one application. Try keeping dog away from that spot and see if he goes anyplace else. If he continues to go in other places you will have to take to the vet, even though it may be a training issue and not a medical issue. You will have to be certain which issue you are having.
