My Dachshund Has Started Urinating In The House

 

My formerly housebroken Dachshund has started urinating in the house. Now what do I do?

 

Get to the veterinarian immediately. Dachshunds are prone to bladder stones. If a previously housebroken dog begins urinating in the house, you MUST rule out any medical trouble first. If there is no sign of bladder infection or bladder stones, then revert to “puppy training 101″ and pretend the dog was never housebroken. Some Dachshunds will soil the house out of spite. Sometimes we don’t know what they’re mad about. It really doesn’t matter; it’s not appropriate behavior and you need to take immediate steps to reassert yourself as the one making the rules. And…not soiling the house is one of those rules.
