Hi, so I have two dogs Maltese cross Shitzu 8 years old and Shitzu 7 years old. We had them both from Puppies and we toilet trained and over the years they’ve had the occasional indoor accidents but nothing compared to the last 2 years. 2 years ago they started urinating indoors frequently not long after the issues started my grandfather passed (he lived next door to us and we had a gate on the back garden so our dogs were there pretty much all the time the loved my Grandpa), my mum got a new carpet just over a year ago and so they were no longer allowed in the livingroom due to the issue and over the last few months they have been doing it pretty much every night we put a camera in the kitchen where they sleep and it’s mainly our eldest dog. We make him go out at night (around 12-1 am) and then my mum lets them out in the morning about 6 am and often then not he’s gone on the floor. My worry is I leave for Uni in September and my mum has a shorter fuse with them and I’m at a loss what to do I feel bad as they have gone from having the roam of two house dusk til dawn to only having the out house and getting let out regularly as when they had the door open during the day and the gate to the kitchen open he was going in the house. Could it be a health problem? We put it down to grief at first but it’s been two years surely he must have adapted and like I said it’s our eldest not our youngest he’s not really an issue he just keeps trying to eat out of our kitchen bin so we’ve had to put a child lock on it. He is fed enough dw the vets actually said last time we took him if he was a person he’d have a six pack. I don’t know if this makes a difference the eldest (the one we’re having a problem with) is nurtured and the younger isn’t.
