Based on all the posts you have been making about your dog, it sounds like you needed to do some reasearch before getting a dog in the first place. It also sounds like your dog is not potty trained or has some medical problems that are causing it to pee everywhere but where it should if it is potty trained. sorry to come off rude but you’ve posted like 5x a day about questions about your dog that need to be looked into before getting a dog in the first place.

Train the dog (which takes time and effort and consistency) and have her checked out for a possible UTI. just changing her bedding isn’t magically going to make her stop peeing on things.

@isabelle_86:  you adopted her from your SIL you said… didn’t she tell you she had issues? yes it is hard to potty train an older dog. but perhaps if she had issues you should have looked into what it takes to potty train an older dog who has bad habbits already… either your SIL didn’t train her properly or she was trained and is having medical problems causing her to go in places she shouldn’t. I’m not sure how someone would deal with a dog for 1.5 years that isn’t potty trained. I can’t imagine the training was very good if she hadn’t learned yet, which is why maybe it’s medical.

Maybe you could see if there is a dachshund rescue in your area.  They may have better ideas as to how to help you train her.  PP are right that once you’ve ruled out a medical problem like UTI it takes time and consistency (especially since she’s out of puppyhood) – that means weeks to months, not hours to days.

You sound very frustrated, and the dog has had a difficult life being moved from home to home to home so frequently in hey short life.  Overcoming bad habits  will take time and may take creativity from those who have been there before – thus the suggestion about asking for help from a dachshund rescue.  (Or if you can afford it from a dog trainer (preferably a behaviorist who has experience in solving problems that are in dogs older than puppys)

@isabelle_86:  If this is new/unusual behaviour for her then I would definitely bring her to the vet and have her checked out.

@isabelle_86:  If she initially wasn’t peeing on everything when you got her, and has now started, then that does sound like it could be a UTI.

then I think you need to bring her to the vet. its likely she’s stressed out from moving or something. you’ve posted you’re having trouble getting her to eat also. and something about eating only human food? why not take her to the vet FIRST to rule out anything bad.

if a dog has a house training problem, it has a house training problem. unfortunately yes the move could have caused stress making her misbehave or what have you. but when animals behavior changes the best thing to do is rule out anything medical and a trip to the vet will do that. I don’t know why you wouldn’t do that first to rule everything out. other posters are also on the page of taking her to the vet.
