Hello! We just rescued a 10 month old English bulldog (now 11 months). She is loving and adorable, but there is a major issue: she just pees whenever she wants, anywhere she wants. We were told she was crate-trained, but I am not so sure. She does not poop in the house at all, so that is a relief, but I do not know what to do about the peeing. We take her out in the morning to pee, feed her right away, then take her out within 30 minutes. Then, we were letting her roam the house when we were home, but she will just pee with not warning. So, we decided to try crating her like a newer, younger puppy. We do not leave her in the crate for more than one hour, the let her out to play for a little while and get some water. Within 20 minutes of her drinking, we take her out again. We do this throughout the day. But, she will be sitting with us and then walk off and pee on a rug, or worse, her pillow. Tonight, I feed her and gave her water. My husband put her in her cage just so he could finish eating (maybe 10 minutes). While we were eating, I looked over and she peed all over her bedding and then started licking it up. I understand how to house train with the crate, but if she will pee in the crate, what do we do? I don't know too much about her former homes and how well they did with her, but this is a problem. Dogs aren't supposed to pee where they sleep, and she doesn't seem to mind. She won't lay in it, so I guess that is good. She is also not making through the night as her blanket is wet when we get up to take her out in the morning. At 11 months, she should be able to hold it for at least 6-7 hours at night. And she certainly shouldn't be just peeing anywhere she wants during the day when she goes at at least every 2 hours, maybe 3 at the most. HELP?!?!?!?!?
