Spiteful wetting

by Janet
(Long island NY )

Our jack russell, Captain, has begun this past year to wet on the bed or near the beds of family members. If I correct him he has even wet on my bed pillow! I am frankly at my wits end - I have tried all kinds of things from lavishing him with positive attention, in case it was from feeling neglected, to confining him as though he was a new puppy in need of house breaking. I'm at a point where I may not be able to go on like this much longer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. He is otherwise a great dog. Wonderful with children and other dogs and as jacks are - full of personality.

Sudden urinating in house sign of problem
by: Anonymous

Generally, if the dog didn't used to wet in the house, and just started, the first thing I would do is take him/her to the vet and have them examined. My JRT starting doing that, and it turned out she had a urinary tract infection. Always best to rule those out.

Also, if you don't use the proper cleaner that completely gets rid of the urine smell (like an enzyme cleaner specifically for dog messes), than the dog will continue to go back to the same spot and urinate.

I know nothing about this problem but I have to tell you I admire your determinatin to help him. Perhaps doggie diapers? and then a trainer? Good luck!
