Re: Housebroke Dog Suddenly peeing in the house.

Whoops correction: that's why I can't understand the peeing thing. S/N: I corrected him before that way when housebreaking him and he never hid from me to do it, he finally just stopped doing it.

Re: Housebroke Dog Suddenly peeing in the house.

When I catch him peeing I immediately tell him no and put him outside and when he comes in he knows he's done bad by laying ears back and looking guilty. Is this all a behavioral issue or should I be concerned that this is a medical issue? If you punish him for peeing inside, he's going to learn to...

Re: Housebroke Dog Suddenly peeing in the house.

Well the vet did mention that it would cause him to be thirsty and therefore drink more, which he has been, but it wasn't an issue the first 5 days, and the frequency in which they (he's one of 4 dogs) were being let out hasn't changed. During the day when I'm home, I usually just leave the side doo...

Housebroke Dog Suddenly peeing in the house.

I've had Riley since he was two months old. At 3 months I started crate training him and he housebroke quickly after that. Fast forward 4 1/2 months. Last night he had two accidents in the house, then one in the middle of the night, and then just now while I was trying to play with him. I'll admit b...

Re: White PitBulls Prone To Skin Problems?

Well I read on pitbull site that you only had to worry about the ones with the pink noses, but he is light skinned everywhere else. I got him at two months back in July, but he didn't go out much, except for the bathroom, he pretty much just slept all the time for the first two months after I had hi...

Re: White PitBulls Prone To Skin Problems?

Well the only skin problems he's had so far, aside from scratch marks from playing, are red bumps/marks on his under carriage, so to speak. I can't tell if its marks from playing, possible flea bites (he does not have fleas but I find the occasional stray one every now and then), or something else a...

For the Love of Riley

It was not a planned acquisition, but one that will have forever changed me. I grew up with Collies my whole childhood life (i.e. livi...
