Hi Guys!
We have a 7 month old male Beagle called Buddy. He's a typical mischevious beagle and generally awesome dog


He is house trained...when we are at home and always asks to go in the garden. He knows he is not allowed to pee in the house...

HOWEVER.....when we go out, even for just a few hours, he often pees in the house (but only ever when we are not there)


We asked a trainer about this and she said we must be consistant with him, but the thing is he never tries to go inside when we are at home - he always goes outside then....


He usually pees around the same place in the conservatory, so perhaps he can smell it there and thinks its ok to pee there.... (although we always clear up straight away of course!)

Any suggestions on how to stop him peeing in the house when we are not there??? Will he grow out of it???

(we always ask him to pee before we leave - which he always does)

Thx

Thanks people, some good ideas.

I think the separation anxiety could be right, he does get this sometimes. I'll try the cleaner made for dog pee too. We do have him in just one area when we are out with toys to play with. He's generally not left on his own for a very long time (4-5 hrs) and I think that he needs to learn that it is OK for him to be on his own for a while but it take time i guess. I try not to give him affection or attention before leaving the house for at least 30 mins.

We would love to get him a friend and are considering that as an option. Now is not the best timing, however it is defo a consideration.

He's been a good puppy for the last couple of days....no pees....lets see if it lasts!
