What breed is your dog?

How old is your dog?

Male or Female? Neutered or spayed?

How long have you owned your dog?

How long has she been doing this behavior of peeing and pooing on the furniture?

Do you ever catch her in the act of peeing or pooing on the bed or couch?

Does she pee and poo elsewhere in the house? (if so, do you ever catch her doing it?)

Does she pee and poo outside?

When she goes outside, do you walk her or is she in a fenced yard?

If she is in the yard, will she pee or poo when you are watching her?

Was she ever housetrained? If so, what type of methods did you use?

Is she crate trained?

Is she healthy? Has she had a recent vet check? A stool check? A urine check?
