Solving Toileting Problems with Adult Dogs

Toilet issues are not just confined to young pups, but can occur with adult dogs who were previously well house-trained. In this instance it’s possible that your dog is “marking” its surroundings. This can be a dog’s way of creating boundaries by using its scent, enabling him to feel safe and possibly protecting valuable food sources or pack members. On rare occasions there may also be underlying medical or nutritional issues contributing to the problem.

As with other behavioural issues, it’s important to understand the reason why your dog is behaving this way, in order to solve the issue. The causes of toileting issues with adult dogs can be many and varied. The good news is that these problems are almost always resolvable. The best thing to do is to consult a professional. Your local Bark Busters dog trainer will provide expert advice and assistance to help you resolve the problem.
