Have Dog Training Questions? Ask a Dog Trainer.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Has any kennel training been done with this pup?Have any meds for anxiety been tried?
Is she kept in her kennel when you leave the house?
Two steps to take in your case would be to not only have a urinalysis performed to rule out the risk of a urinary complication but also to talk to your veterinarian about placing her on a short-term trial of behavioral meds if you believe this to be due to anxiety. It may be too soon at only 2 months to have a dependable amount of information on whether or not she's having issues with the kennel training, but at 7-8 years of age there should be no reason she cannot hold her urine in a kennel setting. An exclusion would be in the case of a urinary concern like a tumor, infection, crystals, etc.The behavioral meds can take the edge off of her anxiety keeping her from performing some of the habits we see so common in anxiety animals, including inappropriate urination.
