House Training an Adult Rescue Dog

We recently adopted a 10 year old Yorkie that may have been abused or neglected. We have no idea how long he was a stray. We are crate training him and let him outside a lot and also take him for walks. The problem is that even when we take him for a walk and he poops and pees he will pee when he comes back in the house within 5 minutes so it's not a bathroom problem. Is he trying to mark his territory? He's only been here less than 2 weeks. What can we do to stop him? We already love him and he is so sweet.

An abused dog will take time to house train and get him use to going outside for walks and to the toilet. You are doing everything possible for the dog right now. The worst thing you can do is to scold him or punish him for peeing inside the home. It has only been two weeks he is in a loving environment and he wants to feel like this is his forever home. Just keep watching him and when you get home let him go outside on the grass before he goes in the house. This might help him stop peeing when he enters your home.

He may be trying to mark his territory. What I would do is to have someone watch him carefully and to take him outside at the first sign of relieving himself.


Take him to the same spot each time. Praise him for a job well done and so not yell or punish for accidents
