our 5 year old de sexed maltese urinates inside everyday. He has access to go outside and when he does he usually urinates at least 4 times.The family somedays are home on and off, but more days alone. He has had his urine checked and the vet says it's ok, and maybe a behavourial problem. I am desperate. can you offer any help please.
This sounds like a behavioral problem. I would start with keeping the dog more isolated in the house. I would not allow him free accesss around the house. I would reward him when he goes to the bathroom outside and reprimand him when he goes inside ( you have to catch him in the act or within 20 min. ) When you are not home he should be in a small area such as the kitchen. Clean the soiled areas in the house with natures miracle. vetcare
