Default New dog issues....

We just adopted a 2 year old female pocket beagle. We were told she is housebroken, but since we got her home....she pees everywhere. Is she just nervous or has separation anxiety. When will it stop......what can we do?

Thanks,
Larry

Hi Tyndaris and welcome to Df Sorry to hear about your girl!
She seems to have quite a few issues a lot to do with lack of training and or abuse. Whats the history to this poor girl you have kindly rescued ?

Does she have any other issues like cowering if you get to close or you go to pat/stroke her? How long have you had at home?

I would also rule out by going the vets incase she has a UTI. I would suggest also to contact a behavourist to evaluate these problems as it's not always clear cut but we do try and give good advice Aww I do hope you can get her problems sorted out and soon. Please keep us updated with her progress! What's her name? Good luck and ATB xxx

There can be several reasons..
1. A lot of people will say that the animal is housebroken despite isnt to get rid of the problem to a new home.. she might never been housebroken...

2. she might have a UTI

3. she might have relocation stress...

The best chance is to totally start over with the potty training as if she was a pup.
during the day when home have her leashed to you so she can't sneak away and pee, bring her out often (coupleof times an hour if you have to) praise when she goes outside, if she goes inside say a quick no scoop her up and run her out and praise her...

Once she settles in and there's no medical issues behind it they usually get the hint after Id say 3-6 months some dogs even quiker.. IF its stress related as in fear and insecurities it will usually take longer time....

Good luck with her and please dont give up, and please post pictures

If you have only in the last few weeks got her then she will need time to adjust in to her new surroundings! Please be patient and never tell her off for going in the house But as Monkey says plenty of praise ( and a few treats so she will associate going out side will get pleasant rewards!) when she goes out side I think going back to basics is a great idea!
Good luck and keep us posted on any updates it will get easier! Hope it gets sorted soon ATB

Was she an inside dog or an outside dog? Does she have a floor preference for peeing?

An outside dog on dirt or grass will gravitate to the lawn, but won't know how to make her needs known.

If you have access to a Petsmart, get the book "Potty Training is Possible." It's a thin paperback book usually sold near the training center. Read it. Follow it. She'll be fine.

Monkey is right about the UTI. I would have that checked because if it's an infection, no amount of potty training is going to fix that.
