Toilet training help!!!!

650 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  DaySleepers
Help!! My five month old female sprocker spaniel has suddenly in the last week started urinating on the rug or duvet cover in the evening. She was fully toilet trained before this and throughout the day will tell us when she needs to go out for a wee. She’s walked in the evening too and wee’s and poo’s on the walk. But suddenly this week, in the evening only, she urinates just once on the rug or duvet. How can I stop her from doing this?

First step is to take a urine sample to the vet and have her checked for a urinary tract infection. It's pretty easy to treat, but can really disrupt toileting schedules if left untreated and can lead to even more serious complications.

If she gets the all-clear from the vet, start over with house-training. Five months is still pretty young and some dogs, at any age, will not alert you if they need to go. If she has a UTI, she may have little or no control.
