House Trained Dog Started Peeing Inside

I have a Dachshund male who has been neutered. He is house broken, but tonight he peed on our new couch and next to my son's bed just 40 min after my husband took him out. What should I do to correct his behavior? I am working on finding a trainer, but didn't have time before the move. He had a consultation and they said he is insecure and and afraid which is why he barks at people and doesn't like bigger breeds. But I won't be able to get a trainer for at least a month so I need some advice on what to do on my own. I am going to take him to vet to see if he has a health issue, but his peeing in the house isn't consistent. I think something upset him, but I need to get to bottom of it asap.

It's probably not a health issue. If you moved, its that he's in an unfamiliar territory. Follow the steps you took initially in housebreaking him. Most likely, he's unaware of his surroundings and will need to be re-housebroken appropriately for his new surroundings.

I think the move has upset him. You will have to patiently retrain him and keep him crated or gated in the kitchen

what you can do on your own is not blame the dog for your mistakes. If you didn't "have time" to find a trainer you probably saw this coming and had problems before the move too.

stress in the household affects animals, especially nervous little ones. he obviously wants to mark his territory, you guys need to gently teach him who's boss, preferably with a professional's guidance.

I know the feeling, our dog did the same thing. But luckily it's easily fixed! Most likely it's due to the fact that you recently moved, since that will definitely do it. When we moved our dog started going in the house every once in awhile, so we started taking her out every hour. Not the most practical, but it's worth it. Make sure that it has a spot in the house that is there's alone , so that they feel secure. Also, if you recently changed the dog's diet then that could be the reason too. Basically if you know the dog does not have a health issue, if you do research, and keep taking your dog out regularly, then I don't see why it wouldn't eventually adjust to the move and stop. : )

Did the previous owners have dogs in the house? He may be smelling that. New couch? Often they contain formaldehyde and animals find that smell disagreeable to them.

I would confine to one part of the house, then slowly introduce him to the rest of it.
