We got our dog in December. We hired a trainer and successfully house trained her. However, lately, she's started this new thing where she goes outside, pees a little bit and then plays in the snow. Then, shortly after letting her in, she wants back out again, and does the same thing. It seems as though when we don't put her back out, she will piddle somewhere. Also, she can't make it through the night without needing to use the bathroom anymore. I usually wake up to her sniffing around (she isn't a barker so doesn't wake me up) and will put her out, but lately I'm exhausted and sleep through it. So, she ends up peeing on the floor, even if it's just a little bit. We do usually leave her water bowl out at all times, so now we're thinking we'll just take it up after a while, and about an hour before bedtime and just make her stay outside longer. When I was growing up my parents would make our dogs smell their pee and then get on to them and put them out and after doing that a few times, they NEVER peed in the house.....As much as I hated seeing that, I wondering if that's the only way I can get her to make a correlation between pee on the carpet and being in trouble. We get on to her for everything else but it's when we catch her in the act, we don't ever catch her peeing, so she doesn't get in trouble for it. We're just at a loss.
