Guest starbuck Posted February 22, 2012 Share Posted February 22, 2012 (edited) How often do you folks generally take your dogs out for bathroom breaks? We've had our girl for about two weeks now (she's house-trained, by the way), and it seems like we need to take her out every 2.5 hours when we're home or she'll pee downstairs. We're a little perplexed because she manages just fine when she's in her crate during the day or when she's in bed at night. This ends up being pretty stressful in the evenings when my husband and I are just trying to relax and/or go to sleep or go out, and we're not sure if this is still an adjustment phase or if it's normal. Thoughts? A few other notes: She's been to the vet already and everything there seems to check out; She doesn't urinate in the same spot more than once, but it is always downstairs; She doesn't give us any warning signs (i.e., pacing or staring at the door) before urinating on the rug; I'm treating all stains/accidents with an enzyme cleaner; and She's four years old.
