Hello! Indy, our golden retriver, is 11 months old and just recently started having accidents at home. She was doing really well and we had had no trouble with her up until about 10 days ago. Nothing has changed that I can think of. She's been home while we go to work for awhile now and has had no trouble holding it until we got back. We haven't changed her food and I can't think of anything that's really changed. We had a couple of people staying over for one night last week and one night this week but I can't imagine that that would throw her off? the first accident was about 10 days ago when she peed in the house while we were there. I didn't see any of her usual warning signs. Perhaps I missed them but, like I said, she's always been able to hold it for hours and this was a couple of hours after her last trip outside. The second was a few days ago while we were out (peeing onthe floor both times) and then today she pooped on the floor while we were gone. Is this usually an age where they have these training "brain farts" and it's "normal"...or is this something I should be concerned about?
