We have a wonderful lab and decided he needed a playmate, so we did the right thing and picked up a dog from the rescue league, a small mixed breed, we were told he was about a year old. One major flaw quickly arose in this plan, the new dog has a major bladder problem; he pees in the house, setting a lifetime record by my account of 4 times in one day! All this while we are being very vigilent and attentive, watching out for it.
Seems to be excited or stress related behavior, usually with no warning whatsoever. Prompted at different times by walking up to him, reaching down to pet him, the sun rising, the sun setting, breathing, ect. however not always, sometime he appears to be just to darn lazy to go over to the door.
He has a huge outside play area and does play for hours at a time with the lab. Anyway, its getting real old, we need a fast fix, if there is one. We are very patient however very short on spare time and my psychiatrist bills are getting expensive. Guess one option is to take the little feller back to the rescue league.
