My dog other pees contained by house-no medical issues-no appropriate point?
I have a 4 rear old mannish Corgi. We got him as a puppy and was crate trained if you ring it that. He peed even in crate. He is neutered. I also have a womanly sheltie and they get long well. I am home ALL light of day and the dogs go out at least every hour. He continues to pee all over the house. I took him to the vet and nearby are NO medical reasons why he would do this. I mean he is out every hour and I do see him going outside. I find it on trash can, shower curtain, bedspread, and even on the TV stand! When I remove the item to take to laundry, he hides like he KNOWS he did wrong but continues to do it besides! We do not hit him but I am at my wits end. Sheltie doesn't EVER do this. If I am gone for even a half hour and come home, he is hiding and certain enough he did it somewhere. He knows it is wrong and continues to do it anyway. We are pious to our animals and they get a treat everytime they go out. If it were medical, I would grasp. Once an hour outside is enough! I am ready to put him down at this point because whether he went somewhere else I'm afraid the new owners would beat him because explicitly what I feel like doing at this point! He hides and act guilty! He knows he did wrong! I'm tired of washing floors and linens daily. We furnish him lots of love and attention but I've had it. Any suggestions?
at lowest so you can stop dealing with PeePee. and until you figure out what else you can do...
What I did for my dog was everytime he would have an accident within the house I'd grab his face make him look at what hed done and utter "No!" and put him out, I know it seems kind of harsh but my dog have not had an accident in my house for over 2 years very soon
Chances are if he's doing it, he doesn't know that he shouldn't - that "guilty" look is his response to your frustrated and even angry response. Any dog will run and cover up if their owner starts yelling - or even if the owner is stressed (they can sense out moods through the dash we project.)
Where did you get him from? Dogs from pet stores, shelters, and some BYB homes are more prone to harder housebreaking because they learned that it's okay to potty within their beds or in the home (mainly because they have no other choice.)
How much does he drink during the day? You may want to try monitoring his water intake and maybe adjectives back on that so long as he doesn't dehydrate.
Beyond that, have you considered hiring a trainer or behaviorist to try to figure out the principle for this? That's probably the best solution if there's nothing medically wrong. In my opinion it seem a bit selfish and childish to "put him down" for just this problem, when he's only four! He's get another ten plus years of life left and to put him down for the reasons you stated.
Hire a trainer, and whether nothing else works surrender him to be re-homed. Shelters are usually very biddable at matching dogs with homes. Wouldn't you rather impart the guy a chance with someone who may be able to manipulate this a bit better as opposed to putting him to sleep for a reason you personally don't read?
