Dog Peeing in the House?


I have a four-year-old male blue Staff. And lately, probably for the back past eight months, I am struggling with the times I have to clean up around my house even though he has a dog flap where he can go in and out at will. My family and I are really coming to the end of our tether. As soon as you spot what he has done, he will go back in his bed and put his head against the wall. So he obviously knows it is wrong.


Help please.

Make sure he gets a clean bill of health from the vet. There may be a reason he cant hold his waste.

There are so many reasons this behavior happens. First you need to have him checked by a Vet. Behavioral problems can be part of it too. That can be complex and more difficult to tease out. More information about his living situation would help too. He may be afraid of something outside, or he may have become afraid of the door flap. Stress in the household can trigger this behavior. But your best bet will be to start with your Vet. He knows the right questions to ask. Good luck to you.

I would restart potty training again, and take him out every so often. I would also throw treats outside, so he gets the idea that t here are great items outside. I would not feed him treats in the house.


In addition, make sure you are not leaving kibble out all the time, this makes his system never rest from having to digest food and go to the bathroom. Try feeding a grain-free food, that does not have corn in it. Corn produces lots of stool.

Don't forget to take the water up around 2 hours before you go to bed. This will help him be able to potty train more successfully.
