House Trained Dog Peeing and Pooping Inside?

My Shih Tzu is 3 years old and house trained. I use to take her out for a walk once in the morning and once in the afternoon until I had a fall, now a friend takes her. But now she has wet and pooped in the kitchen at night, every night. This is where she sleeps. I let her out before I go to bed, but she won't do anything then. Please help.

Why does your dog sleep in the kitchen?

Shih Tzus are dogs that were bred not to do anything at all except to be a companion to humans. They aren't ratters, hunters, water dogs, sled-pulling dogs or whatever. They were bred to sit in your lap.

Your dog needs to be in your room. If you're worried that she will "go" on the floor, put her in her crate right next to your bed so she can see you out of the front. It would be better if she could sleep with you, though.

Basically, your dog got scared when you had your fall and now she's stressed because she can't keep an eye on you.

My little shih tzu sleeps with me, and he never wets the bed. He does, however, have a bad habit of getting up some nights and rather then using the doggy door to go outside, he pees in my chair.


I started putting a tray with some books on it on the chair, and he's fine with that, but when I forget, he's back to peeing in the chair. I love him to death, but I'm frustrated. Now, I understand a little more about it.
