Default still peeing!

My schnauzer Zoe is 18 mos. old and is still having accidents...peeing in the house. We had about a 6 week period recently where she didn't have any. Within the last 3 weeks she's had 3. We think we're really good at getting her out but last week she had just been out and when she came in she squatted and pee'd right in front of my husband. She didn't even bother to go to the door. Isn't 18 mos. a little old to be doing this? I could cry when I read these posts that say their dog was housebroken in 3 mos. Please give me your advice/tricks/tips.

Is she also peeing more frequently? Could be a chance she may have a urinary tract infection. Might want to take a urine sample to the Vet just to have that ruled out.

What kind of Schnauzer is Zoe?

And Pam's advice is very good. Often a dog (or cat) will exhibit that kind of behaviour to try to tell you something is wrong with them.

Yeah, definetely take he to the vet. Shelby did that when we first got her and we found out she had a urinary tract infection and we had to give her medicine but then she got better. Don't feel bad my 12 month old pitbull mix isn't housebroken and he does more than just pees in the house.

I agree with the others. Make sure first that it's not a UTI. Then just keep plugging away and watch her carefully. She'll get it anytime now.

Thanks for your responses. I mentioned this to the vet at her visit in May so I know it's not a uti. I'd say 98% of the time she does really well and just when I think I'm over the hurdle like that 6 wk. period...I'll find a wet spot. Oh well....I'll just keep trying. By the way she is my 3rd miniature schnauzer.

We have had Cocoa for 9 months now and she'll be turning a year on Sunday. She was potty pad trained in the 1st week or less and has been ever since. Occassionally she will decide to just pee on my carpet upstairs (maybe ever couple months)... Don't know why (unless it's laziness on her part or she's to busy playing to stop and get outside or to a potty pad)...LOL I figure 1 mess every few months I can deal with, if it was daily I'd be having a fit.
