I'm a house sitter...

I'm a house sitter there are 2 pug/beagles 4yrs & 10yrs. The 10yr old is peeing on their rugs even after I walk him or let him outside. He just had a physical a month ago and had his urine tested today and nothing is wrong. How do I help the owners get him to stop this?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the pug's name and age?

Caeser 10yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the pug?

Caeser is taking meds for anxity

No supporting document. The owner says Caeser is just being a bad dog. But she seem pretty angry he is peeing on her nice rug.

Thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you.

If the veterinarian has ruled out there is a medical problem with a urinalysis, than likely the problem is behavioral. If the owner's are committed, they can work to review house training with him (if he was previously). This can be time consuming and may not be practical if they are not home a lot and you are not there to take him out. One thing that would help a lot is to get him used to a dog crate when no one is home.

Here are a few links that may be helpful:
