My 14 wk old lab is peeing in her crate during the day as of this week. We had to go back east for a funeral and I had to board her at our trainers for a week. The day after we got back she started to pee in her crate after only 1-1/2 hrs when before she could hold it for 3 hours. She can go 5-7 hours at night without having to pee. We are back on our regular schedule and I do not feed her or give her water before crating her so there is no reason for this unless the routine at the trainers was so off of ours that we are dealing with some potty training regression. I am only gone at most 3 hours during the day 3x a week for work so I have to get this under control again. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
I would advise you to first of all have her checked out by the vet, just in case she picked up a bug at the boarder's. She may have a urinary tract infection, or maybe a kidney infection.If this trip was very recent, you may be right, she's just been thrown off her schedule, and will shortly get back into her old routine. I would definitely have the vet check though. Good luck with her.
That's an excellent point. She's getting her rabies shot next week so I will have her checked out. We did leave her for 3 hours on Thanksgiving and no accident SO I am hoping this just was a huge change in her routine. Thanks.
