MY 2 YEAR OLD ROTTIE KEEPS PEEING EVERY WHERE….. CAN’T STOP HIM, HELP PLEASE
If this is unusual for your dog and he’s just started doing it then you need to get him to your veterinarian right away as he probably has a health condition causing the problem.
He could have a urinary tract infection, or a bladder/nerve problem or something else, only a vet can make an accurate diagnosis.
If he’s never mastered the art of house training though and it’s simply a potty training issue then I’d strongly recommend reading my Puppy Crate Training page and following the advice there, it’s fairly similar regardless of what age your dog is. The main difference would be that he needs less frequent potty breaks.
Also, if he WAS potty trained but has suddenly started peeing everywhere and the veterinarian says he is healthy, then it’s possible that it’s stress related or due to sudden changes in your home. A house move, a new baby, a new pet, divorce, marriage… all sorts of things can make a dog anxious if it causes an upheaval in their predictable routine/lifestyle and this can cause potty training problems. If this could be the reason for your difficulties, going back to basics with more frequent potty breaks, supervision and using the crate can help.
I’d definitely recommend that vet visit first though. Hope this helps, best of luck.
