Older Dog Peeing Inside With New Puppy?

A black dog sleeping with a small white and brown dog.We have a 18 month old male Giant Schnauzer and recently got a 10 week old female ShihTzu. They get on really well with each other which is what we wanted as the GS had separation anxiety, but occasionally he is peeing in the house. The puppy is really good and goes outside. Have you any advice please?

Any change in a dogs life or schedule could trigger this. Wait awhile and when things get back to a new normal for the dog things should improve.

There is a reason for this behavior - the new puppy.

Don't punish your dog. Not only will it not work, it may cause the dog to urinate behind the sofa or other hidden places.


Training techniques for house soiling dogs are virtually identical to those needed to house train a new puppy.

If this does not change over time, then the problem could be medical. Then with a physical examination, diagnostic tests, and a good history, it should be possible to determine whether the problem is medical.

Determine whether your pet is marking (urinating on upright surfaces), incontinent (leaking urine or stool), or losing control when fearful or excited.

Marking is urination on upright objects is most likely to occur on or near the odors, especially the urine, left by other dog (puppy). When a dog is marking, the volume of urine is usually small. The problem is much more common in intact males, but some neutered males and spayed females will mark. Dogs may mark territory for a number of reasons including male hormonal influences, as a response to increased stress or anxiety, or other.
