My Shih Tzu is 8 months old and is in heat. She has always used a pee pad until the last few days where we find her peeing wherever she wants. We do not startle her while she is doing this, but firmly say "No" and take her to her pad. What is odd is she still poos on the pad. I don't know if this is related to her being in heat or what. She will be fixed after her cycle.
Please help.

Get little boy underwear and put in a pantyliner, then put the underpants on the dog backwards with the tail going through the opening and then you just have to change the pantyliners.

Have you considered having her de-sexed before she came into her first cycle.? Are you a registered breeder and have litters planned for her? Talk to your Veterinarian about the number of times during a normal life-time she will be "on heat". Hope this helps you but more importantly her.

My mini Dixie just turned one year old. She is spayed and is doing the same thing. We are so puzzled also.

I have a female 10 month old Lab/Beagle mix. She has been house trained since she was 4 months old, with no accidents. She went into her first heat about a week and a half ago, and the last 4 or 5 nights she has been peeing on the bedroom floor while we sleep. She never tries to wake us up to go outside, just does her business on the floor and we find it in the morning. Is this a normal behavior for a dog in heat? (I plan to get her spayed after she is out of heat and her body goes back to normal)

They can have different behaviors when in heat. This can be common. You need to either kennel her or if she leaves them on, diaper her.

The urine smells much stronger during this time. You might want to diaper her.

My dog has been house trained for a while. She came into her first heat about two weeks ago; she just started peeing in the house and outside. She is peeing a lot, everywhere.

Have your dog see a vet maybe it has urinary tract infection. In the meantime, put a doggie pantie on it and pad it extra thick to hold urine. Change it throughout the day.


You can buy a bag of cheap baby diapers and cut a hole to fit tail and that works too unless the dog wants to fight about it and pulls it off. It's worth a try and it's a cheap problem solution to a temporary situation.
