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?!?!?!?!?

Thank you both! We do need to get her to the vet. We have record of her recently visiting, but we probably need to get her there anyway.

I hate the thought of having to start over!! But, if that is the way to do it, then so be it, huh? I think you are probably right about never being pity trained. My husband was usually the house trainer, so this is a little new to me. I appreciate any advice. I have a spray that I was using, but I will try the vinegar. She doesn't seem to be going in the same spot...not picky, I guess!! I thought maybe she was going because she was mad about being put in her cage or being left in a room alone.

What about at night? Do we need to get up in the middle of the night and take her? Or do you think that will fall into place as we keep training during the day?

Any help is appreciated!!! Thanks!!!
She is on the first floor and we are upstairs at night. We do not hear her. Our other dogs had no problem waking us up, so I think we would hear her if she was trying to let us know. So, I guess we will worry less about the night time issue for now and just get the day time issue taken care of.

Thank you again. If I need more help, I will be sure to post again!!
Thank you again for all of the advice! We are going to work hard to get this corrected so that we have a safe, happy home for all of us. She is such a doll...so cute and we all love her so much already!!

Thanks again!
