My dog pees (A LOT) when I leave her in a room alone, how do I stop this?

asked 2017-10-27 12:54:05 -0600

My house is open concept and even when I leave my dog in the kitchen with a baby gate (where she can see me) she pees all over the floor. I have only had her for a little over a month, but she only seems to have accidents when I am not in the room. Why is this and how can I stop it? I am trying to give her more freedom by letting her stay in the kitchen instead of her crate (though I leave her crate in the kitchen open as well)). Any advice is welcome!

We had problems with our dog also. He used to poop and dig holes, table etc. when we were not at home. Both my husband and I work a lot and had no time to take our Bud to dog training classes. We asked one friend who works in foster care (he is always surrounded by dogs) what we should do. He recomm

We asked one friend who works in foster care (he is always surrounded by dogs) what we should do. He recommended one online dog behavior trainer. I love this trainer https://bit.ly/2NW0msw It helped us a lot, and I strongly recommend it for you.

I will have to agree, this does sound like anxiety. I would recommend an excellent book https://www.amazon.ca/s/?ie=UTF8&keyw...sl4r1lslky1h_b

This sounds like it could be some form of separation anxiety or she has too much space.

Something quick you could try is limiting her space, larger than her crate but smaller than the kitchen. You could get some other pens to lessen the space.

Another option you could try is to help her get used to being alone. You could put her in her crate for a couple of hours when she is next to you and you are watching tv or something. After she is used to that then put her in her crate further away from you while you are in the same room, then try putting a sheet over the crate so she could no longer see you but hear you while you're in the room with her. Then try putting her in another room in the house with a sheet on top. Slowly get further and further until she is comfortable with being away from you. After that you could try putting her in a small area of the kitchen with her crate and see how she does.

Hopefully, this will help!
