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!

You've gotten some great advice. Start walking her twice a day, even if it's just ten minutes to start and build up your endurance as well as hers. The treadmill should be to finish tiring her out, but you should also get out and walk, even if you're not hyper, it's good for you.

Start back at square one with potty training like she's a baby puppy. Do not let her out of sight for a good month, if you can't watch her use a crate or small pen to confine her. Take her out often (yes, you with the leash outside).

If you find a puddle on the floor, take some rolled up newspaper, hit yourself in the forehead ten times (firmly or you won't learn) while repeating 'I forgot to watch my dog, I forgot to watch my dog......'. You just have to learn and not let her sneak off and pee somewhere. Stop being 'spiteful' of your dog. Really, that makes more sense than your dog being spiteful. They just don't think that much.
