Urinating in home

by Shirley Mcadoo
(Murfreesboro, Tennessee)

I bought a Great Pyrenees pup at 7 weeks.

I already have a 3 year old neutered Australian Shepherd.

I have been trying to house break her for months.
She still wants to pee a little a few minutes after we come in
the house. She peed a little before going into her crate earlier today.
I take her out often-but she will still pee anyway.
Does this have anything to do with my dog who was here
first. She is very sweet natured.
I have let her know that I don't like that- but she still does this
anyway.
Does she need a Ultrsound? She has been on UTI medicine & Bladder medicine-neither one seems to phase her.
Is this a mental or physical issue?
I don't know, can you advise me please?
Thank you-

Urinating
by: Donna

People can't diagnose online. Find a vet who can help you.

You got her young. Never punish her for peeing inside.

Clean where she pees with vinegar and water to neutralize the area.

Keep her leashed to you so if she does go to squat, take her right back outside. Do not punish her. Crate her when you cannot leash her to you until the behaviour begins to change.

UTI?
by: Anonymous

Could it be a urinary tract infection? Ask to test?

patience
by: Anonymous

Patience, patience, patience.
Cannot say that enough.
Your pup was too young to be taken from her mama at 7 wks. So now you have been trying to housebreak a baby. Only you know how you have been doing that. If you have punished her physically at all or, shamed her or, yelled at her you have perhaps caused the very problem you are trying to change. A good routine strictly adhered to, going out the same door every time, gentle words of encouragement, always and without fail, are required.
Its not too late to change your methods, which are not working for you. But you are now working with a very young dog that does not trust you. You are lucky she is sweet. Lets hope she stays that way. Make sure your other dog has fully accepted her. They will show you that by choosing to nap together, by sharing play time. If they are compatible, your older dog will show your pup 'the ropes'. Leashing her to you, keeping her with you is the way to train pups. You must never use corporal punishment.
And always , always be patient with a Pyr.
