  • Maybe he is sick, take him to the vet, he may have a UTI, or kidney trouble, or maybe worms if he is going #2 in the house.

  • My dog did this last year. She has always been so good too! I think that one day she just couldn't hold it and went. We both worked full time back then and I guess i didn't get home fast enough one day. So once she did it, the carpet was marked, as well as the wood floor. I had to get a new carpet and use vinegar on the wood floor to strip the smell out. Now she hasn't done it anymore. Good luck

  • you need to put your dog on a leash and watch your dog go outside and verbally praise every time he goes and then emediately bring him back and give him a treat. keep doing that till he gets it. and yes, it may take a while (a few months)
