OK, i am at wits end with my 1.5 year old female Shorkie. She came to me at the age of 6 mths, and i was driving long haul and she lived in the truck with me. She has always been a hyper dog, and a somewhat disobedient. She has always had issues with going pee and poo in the house. I can let her out, and she can do her "biz" and not long after i let her in she will piss somewhere else. I just had her spayed 3 weeks ago and she had a thorough check up and was perfect in all aspects. She pees on my bed sometimes, she pees on the floors, and today was the most amazing! She got up on the kitchen table, licked the table clean and PEED ON THE TABLE. I just found it and cleaned it up! Have you ever heard of such a thing?

We moved into this new house (brand new) about a month ago. She is comfortable in it. Also i bought her a shock collar for her excessive barking in the evenings and have "zapped" her MAYBE 6 times for her barking. That is the only changes. I strongly doubt she has a bladder infection or a weak bladder. I have reason to believe she is just doing it out of spite. The past couple weeks she has been getting up on the chair or table and getting yelled at. But not slapped. And never zapped for it yet. I have never had such a difficult dog to train in my life!

Dogs are simply not deep thinkers. Nor are many humans, now that I think deeply about it.

As well, dogs are not spiteful creatures as others have said. Their canine brains are not wired for spite. Or guilt, which is often mistaken for appeasement behaviour. Dogs want their humans to be happy with them for many reasons, including survival, getting goodies, attention, love, etc.

Most, if not all, dogs want to please their owners. It's just that sometimes wires get crossed, messages between dog and human are misunderstood and problems are the result.

I can read and understand my dog about 98% of the time and respond to what she is telling me. But there is that 2% where I'm flummoxed as to what she wants me to know. Hungry? No. Potty need? No. Toy desire? No. Too hot and need the A/C on? Yes and bingo. Sometimes, it's just a cuddle she is after.

It's often just a matter of knowing your dog. And that can take time if your dog is new to you.
