Default Dog urinating on carpet after a week being here (??)


The stray dog we found had no one claiming it, so we're going to probably
keep her. An odd thing happened tonight however, so maybe someone here has
had it happen and can explain.

This is obviously a mature dog (probably over 7 years old... gray in face,
etc.). She has been here now a full week. She never once urinated on the
carpet (or anything else) and has gone outside when I let my other two dogs
out. She makes a point outside of going on top of one of my other dogs
puddles once they're done.

Tonight after she came back in after dinner, I found a pee spot next to the
dining room table on the carpet. Not a drop or so... "full pee" puddle. I
took her over to it and did the "no" thing, and I cleaned it up with
"Capture" to remove the odor, but I'm puzzled as to WHY she would do this
after a whole week of not doing anything?

She had just gone out and done her business, and neither of my other two
dogs have ever gone on this carpet, so she wasn't "re-marking" or anything.
I'm hoping this was a fluke thing and not the start of something regular.
Ideas?

Two things. First, don't do the "no" thing again - you just
taught her fear. Second, are you sure that it was she that left
the pee spot?

Since this is out of the blue my first suspicion would be that maybe she's
developing a UTI. I would get her to the vet to make sure she's OK.

Default Going to vet (original poster.. under work name)


(under my work name)...

Yes, I'm sure it was her. She was the only dog over in that area right
before I found it. My other two were in the other part of the house when it
happened.

To the other posters... I'm taking this dog to the vet on tuesday to have
her heartworm test done so I can start her on the monthly pill. I'll have
them check for any infections.

So, basically, some of you are saying that it is NOT normal for a dog to
just do it once randomly out of the blue like this after a week of not doing
it, right? I just don't want to go overboard with this is it was just a
random behavioral thing of her getting adjusted to new surroundings, etc.
