    We have a female Beagle, she’s 13 weeks old and is very smart, inquisitive!
    She’s very good at going to the toilet outside, of course she still has the occasional accident inside. I really could use some advice on a habit she is getting into, for some reason she will wee inside when we have guests......now this is every time we have guests, even if we let her out moments before she will still wee.
    We’ve tried letting her out more whilst guest are here but she’ll still have at least one wee inside.

    Any advice on this would be appreciated, really don’t know what to try to help her understand.

    I suspect this will be because either she is a little nervous when you have guests or of course she may be a little excited (both may cause a 13 week old puppy to wee) or of course everyone is so busy with the guests no one notices she needs to go.

    As well as ensuring she has had a wee, i would just keep an eye on her - what is she like with visitors? I would maybe keep her near you (on the lead even) and give her something to play with and teach her how to relax around visitors.

    Thank you for your response! :)

    She loves guests, she’s always wanting a fuss and to play with our friends, they all love her so the give her a lot of attention. She is always close by as she doesn’t want to miss a fuss from someone haha

    She will just randomly walk to a spot in the room and wee. (Different spot every time)

    I don’t know whether it’s an attention thing, even though she has the guests attention she doesn’t have our full attention due to talking and catching up with friends, when guest are not here she’ll usually go outside but occasionally (every couple of days) she’ll have a wee inside.

    Dogs go to toilet when they need to go, not for any other reason. Attention certainly not at all.

    She's still young at 13 weeks so patience and consistency is the key!

    It's not an attention thing as Lullabydream says - dogs just don't work that way. I suspect she has become excited and lost her concentration and then when she wants to go no one is watching and let's be honest , if you are a 13 week old puppy and you gotta go, you gotta go! So just keep an eye on her when visitors are round ;)

    I agree with the above responses, likely excitement wee, Rizzle still does this at 5 months old (we have only had her two weeks and she wasn’t house trained.

    If we know we have visitors coming we make sure she goes out for a wee before they arrive and then get her to meet them in the garden for a couple of moments.

    Once things have settled we all go back inside but I make sure I pop Rizzle out into the garden at regular intervals - this has reduced the excitement wee in the house.

    At 13 weeks your little bundle of fun hasn’t got full control yet so take them outside regularly (and stay out with it until pee is achieved), the weeing indoors will reduce.
