Have had my 14wk Lucy for 3 weeks now. This morning while I was cleaning up, she had an accident (pee) in the kitchen. She hasn't gone in the house for 10 days now, and only 4 in 3 weeks. Is this a setback, or was it just because I wasn't paying attention to her and didn't see any signals? She also had that look on her face that she knew she did wrong.
Miko did not have many accidents in the house, but she wasn't reliable until after she was 4 months old. A few days after she was spayed (at 6 months), she did have one more accident inside the house.

I think it was only an accident, what I did with my scooby was to let him get some water and right afetr put him in his create for 15min then take him out for pee and no accidents at all, that way he learned to pee only outside, but accidents will happen so don't worry
After you clean up the pee spot, be sure to go over it with either "Nature's Miracle" or OTC Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) to kill any odor suggesting this is a good spot to pee near.

Thanks. Have Nature's Miracle and already did that.
puppies have small bladders. I wouldn't get worried about one accident. I don't consider a dog potty trained until at least 8 months old. And I don't trust my own dogs inside alone in my house without having accidents until they are over a year old. Dogs just don't mature that quickly. IMO.
