My dog is 8 and has been house broken for 8 years, she is peeing in the house even with us taking her out a lot.
I took her to the vet and they said she is healthy, they checked blood and urine.
Why is she peeing???? HELP

My 5 1/2 year old schnauzer has started peeing in the house
by: Anonymous

My schnauzer has started to pee in her dog minder's house. She goes for a pee outside but then comes inside and pees again. She has been going to her dog minder's for over 2 1/2 years and the only time this happened before was when there was a change in her routine (I changed jobs) but now she is in a stable routine again and it is only her and the dog minder's dog in the house and she gets along really well with the other dog. She does not do it the whole time so I don't think that it is a health issue.
I would appreciate any thoughts and help. My dog minder says she has also started to bark at her (she does not usually bark much). I don't know if there is any link between the two.
Thanks
NOTE FROM LINDA: Sorry, we get this quite a bit, but I am not a dog behaviorist -although is does sound like the barking could be connected. Try Googling the problem or post on a Schnauzer forum and see if you can get some light shed on her behaviour. Something has triggered it, but we can't say what. Good luck.

Get a second opion ASAP!!!
by: Beth

I would get a second opinion! The first things I would have checked are diabetes and the urinary tract infection.. My nine year old schnauzer died from organ failure because we didn't realize what was going on and I trusted the vet we'd been seeing (He never once checked her blood sugar and we were having VERY red flag symptoms; urination in the house, started going blind, excessive drinking and lathargic behavior)
The second questions have you moved, a family member leave or a new member added? It could be behavior, she wants to get your attention, possitive or not.... good luck!

Incontinence...

Have you vet check for this and it can be treated with a daily pill.

P in the house
by: Cindi

It could be a urinary infection. Need to check it out at the vets and get on meds. Our's did the same thing and once the infection cleared up the P stopped!

Pipi in the house
by: Michele

That's a shame.. has she been spayed as this may cause her to pipi more, due to her hormones being topsy turvy.. or is she pregnant, if she's not been spayed ?
