    I have a 4 year old staffordshire bull terrier cross. i got her roughly 4 months ago, and since i've had her she's been peeing on the carpets. not a lot, just now and then , but i went shopping the other day, gone for an hour at the most, and when i came home she'd peed on the sofa. nice.

    i'm in pretty much all the time, as i'm a stay at home mum. i have another dog, a male, who keeps her company. they both get loads of attention, from myself, my 2 and a half year old daughter, and my partner. they've both been done. (the dogs, not my partner and daughter!!) also, my back door is ALWAYS open when i'm home, rain or shine, so that they can go out as and when they please. we take regular walks around the lakes near us. (to get there we have to go in the car, and she never pees in there)

    at times she seems a little nervous and edgy.

    i know she hasn't been mistreated at all. at first i put it down to the stress of being taken from one family and plonked with another, but it's been a while now, and i'm wondering if its her nerves or something? and if it is, is there anything, other than what i'm already doing, that i can do to help straighten this out?

    please, i need somebody's help. i can't chastise her for it because i never see her do it, and it's pointless me doing it when the event has passed and she hasn't got the foggiest why i'm so upset with her.

    I would have her checked by a vet for a UTI infection. Its common in female dogs and easy to fix.

    urinary tract infections can lead to frequent urination and the dogs often times can't control it.

    I agree get her checked for a UTI, very common in puppies

    I 3rd the UTI as it can be a cause of frequent urination.

    When you say they've been "done" does that mean fixed/altered? Otherwise it could be marking. Well even altered dogs might still mark depending on their personalities and age when altered.

    She could also just be lazy and you might have to start retraining her from square one. Some dogs will be house trained but then have an accident and decide its ok to do whenever they feel like it. Even crate trained dogs have this issue. Once they do it once many are likely to be comfortable with it and do it again. All depending on the dog of course.
