Hi everyone!

My puppy is 7 months old and hasn't had a potty training accident in over 2 months, but in the last 2 days she has peed in the house 3 times and I can't figure out why. We have not changed anything about her routine- she gets taken out every 4 hours to use the restroom. We leave her in the crate when we go out and she has not had any accidents in the crate or while we are gone. Only when we are here. She also doesn't do anything to let us know that she has to go. No pacing, barking, whining, standing at the door, nothing. It's like she just all of a sudden realizes she has to pee and does it where she's standing. I have been watching her for any of the symptoms of a UTI, but she has none of them, except the regression in potty training.

Just to add, she was spayed 3 weeks ago and I wonder if that has anything to do with it? I'm pretty sure it's not spay incontinence because when it happens there is no dribbling, just full on peeing and it doesn't happen when she's relaxed or sleeping. I figure if it had something to do with the surgery it would have started before now, though, right? Has anyone else experienced this sudden regression in training? Should I just go back to taking her out every 2 hours instead of every 4? I feel like a 7 month old puppy should be able to make it 4 hours without peeing.
