    DefaultPee Pee Problems

    My lab pup keeps peeing on the floor. Right after I bring him in from outside. I try to limit his water but he keeps snitching water from the toilets (I try to keep him out) and of course there are tons of puddles in my backyard and when he goes out he and my other two just drink themselves silly out there. And when this dog pees, it's a RIVER not just a little puddle. Fortunately (or not) I have hardwood floors and a Hoover hardwood floor cleaner so I can suck it up as soon as I find it, but has anyone else had this problem and how do you solve it. He is now six months old. Shouldn't he be able to hold it better by now or is it because of all the water he drinks. Can anyone help here?

    first step is vet check for a urinary infection. Then take a step back and reinforce potty training..constant supervision, strict schedule, go out with him and reward him when he goes outside.

    How are you cleaning those pee spots?

    Are you using "Nature's Miracle" or Hydrogen Peroxide (3%, OTC strength) on the spot to kill the odor that continually calls out "Here's a great spot to pee -- Pee around HERE!!"

    If not, that could be much of the reason for your problem.

    Definitely check for a UTI. Baloo went through a "phase" where he was drinking like crazy and having accidents all of a sudden, before he even knew he was peeing, it seemed there would be a big puddle. :-[

    Sure enough, UTI.

    He has a check up at the vets tonight. Will they be able to check for a UTI without a urine sample or how is that done? I have a poo sample for them to check for worms.

    You'll need a urine specimen.

    They need a fresh urine sample to check for the UTI. I would have that checked first. If it's clean I would go back to square one on the potty training. Strick supervision, clean up any messes with a enzyme cleaner to get all the smell and try to prevent the accidents as much as you can. If you catch him correct him and take him out immediatley.
