Dog Peeing in the House When Left Alone?

My dog is almost 5 years old, and I have a big problem with him. He pees at home when he is left alone. It doesn't matter if he will go out before or not, if the balcony door is open so he can go out to the garden or if I leave him for 1 or 5 hours. He exactly knows what he is doing is wrong. He doesn't want to come when I ask him what is it.


I really don't know what to do. Should I crate him? I'm scared he will bark or howl, then imagine the neighbors.
Do you have any ideas?
Ps I also give him bone to keep him busy

Dogs do not have complex emotions like anger or spitefulness. The guilty behavior you see in your dog is really an appeasement pose in response to your anger or frustration. So if you really want a solution to the pee in the house you will need to keep looking. I would suggest a checkup with the Vet for starters.


Is your dog getting adequate attention from and exercise with family members? If not a trip to the dog park may be really helpful. Anxiety is commonly where this behavior comes from. See if you can increase his exercise and relaxation, and go with him. We can all use a little exercise and relaxation.

Yes, he gets lots of attention from all the family, walks min 1.5 a day, playtime etc. He follows us everywhere (he even waits outside the toilet) I thinks he is just angry because we leave him alone. Even tho this doesnt happen too often.
Thank you for your help, we try involve him even more in the family life

If there is no physical issue, he is doing it for spite. I would crate him, and reward him when he does go outside.
