Hi, I am new here and I have a 14 week old Australian Shepherd puppy. He has been doing ok with house training, having accidents maybe twice a day but today he has seriously peed so much in the house and I dont' know why! I have researched that they can go through adolescence and start to kind of regress but I am not sure? Any advice? Thank you.

Alternatively, have you maybe been giving him more freedom around the house, since you thought he was doing so well? And thereby giving him more opportunities to have accidents? If so, I would dial back the freedom a lot. Keep him close enough to grab, or else crated, at all times, and take him out on a very frequent schedule. A dog who was having 2 accidents a day is not housetrained, btw - and a 14 week old puppy is just a tiny baby who has no control over pottying. He probably doesn't understand that he's not supposed to pee inside, and couldn't stop himself if he did.

Personally I'd take BOTH the above suggestions, get the pup checked for a UTI to make SURE you don't have that problem and dial back the free roam of the house.
