Older Corgi started peeing in house...
Some background first: We have a 9 year old spayed female Corgi. Sadie has been crated when we are at work or out of the house since we adopted her at 6 months. 9 months ago, we moved from Colorado to Wisconsin. Other than the obvious changes and my not working for the first 3 months after the move, Sadie's routine hasn't changed for what it's been for the last 8.5 years.

The only difference we noticed right away is that she barks a lot more. I'm sure it's because she could see through our fence at the old house, but can't now.

Our problem is this: About 5 or 6 months after the move, Sadie started peeing on the carpet in the house, which she has never done before. Even after asking to go out (ringing a bell or "woofing" at the back door) and then being outside for several minutes, she will come in and when we are out of site, go and pee on the carpet. She will also do this if I am in one room and my husband is in another. Sometimes she has also done this after being told to stop doing something she is not supposed to (we tell her OFF). She is not incontinent as she doesn't not pee in her crate and she does not have any leakage.

She is diabetic and regulated on insulin. She has been treated for a couple of bladder infections the last 3 months or so, but this behavior has not stopped.

Maybe there was another dog living in the house and it peed on the rug and your dog smell it ??

I can relate to your situation and sympathize. I've tried everything I can think of to stop the accidents by my Papillon. The only thing that works for me is keeping her with me at all times while indoors and confining her in a crate when I cannot watch her. No accidents so's been 5 days. I wish you success!

Have you talked to your vet about this? To me it sounds like this might be stemming from her bladder infections. Or could she be 'upset' or at unease about something? I've noticed this behavior in cats, trying to 'punish' their can-openers ;) for something in this way.
