House Trained Dog Urinating on the Carpet

I cleaned my carpet and soon after my house broken dog started peeing on it. He is a Yorkie and he is 8 years old. I don't know what happened to him. He has been checked by a vet and no sugar diabetes, no bladder stones, and no urinary tract infections. He can't go in the living room at all. He doesn't pee anywhere else except on the carpet we cleaned. We thought it was the cleaner we used. So we had Chem Dry come in and clean it with special stuff for pets. But he still did it, so he is confined to the kitchen. I need help to stop this.

He marking his territory for some reason, do ask his Vet for other options!

If there has been a change in his schedule or your lifestyle, that may be the reason. Otherwise I would ask the vet for his or her advice.

The dog was used to his smell on the carpet before it was cleaned. Now he only smells the products used to clean the carpets. He is marking his territory and making the room his again. Older dogs are not use to changes and they do not do well at times when things like this happen.

Until some of the orders are gone in the carpet it may be necessary to keep your dog confined to anotehr room where he will not pee to mark his territory. You can also check the local pet stores to see if they have some products you canuse to cover up the carpet smell and stop him from peeing there again.

Has something happened to stress the pup out? Since he had a clean bill of health (a good thing), I would look to stressors. If none, you can try covering the place he peed with a piece of furniture. We had to do this with one of our dogs. We had a footstool covering the space for a few months. When we finally moved it, that did the trick and he didn't repeat the bad behavior.

If that doesn't work, you may want to get the vet to weigh in on other options.

Sending up prayers and good wishes that hiding the spot works like it did for us!

Use a black light on the urinated carpet and see if traces of urine remain. Pay closer attention to the dog to know when she's heading into the room and get her outside quickly if possible. Perhaps if you take your dog outside more often, you may get better results. The dog's age is a factor too. Our older girl dog can not hold her bladder for long anymore and needs to go outdoors more often. The vet says it's normal and she's healthy for her age. Otherwise, I would get her washable doggie diapers that have a place to insert a feminine pad.
