My dog Allie is housetrained but has developed an odd habit. It seems like when I go out and it is off my normal schedule she pee's in the house. For example if I go out late at night for once and she is used to having me at home. Even if I am only gone for a couple of hours and she went before I left. EVERYTIME I come home she has left her mark. Usually it is on my new area rug but sometimes she will leave it right at the door so I see it when I walk in. Another example is if I am home by 10pm from work she will not pee until about 11 (which is her normal schedule) but if I do not come home until 11 she will have gone on the floor. Is she doing this due to separation anxiety? I do not believe she has lack of bladder control. She also pes right on the spot if I get stern with her when she jumps up on me. Having no training when I got her we are still working to get her there. She has come so far already but I am still struggling with this.
