We got our adult dogs, a beagle and husky, off 2 separate people from kijiji. They were adults when we got them. They were house broken and never peed inside the house. About a year or more ago at our old house they started peeing/pooing at the front door almost every day. This was most likely because they weren’t on a scheduled feeding plan. Then we moved in our new place in January and they were fine for about a month and now it’s happening everyday again.
My female beagle pees at the front door and the male husky pees beside the couch (no carpets thank goodness).
Their fed in the morning then let out and again at dinner time and let out. Their out almost the whole time we’re at home up until bed time. But always wake up to pee/poop. Mostly from the husky, the beagle is getting better, actually hasn’t peed for a while now *knock on wood*.
We don’t know what else to do, we rent and he’s ruining the floor. If I feed them and do something for 10 minutes, they’ve already peed, without making any sound they need to go out.
What can we do?
Many dogs have this problem because they don’t see the house as THEIR house. This is why it is important to show that this is where they live and they should keep it clean also. It’s good that you have a set schedule for your dogs. The first step to eliminating this bad habit is to clean those peed/pooped spots very well.You have to use these special pet products. Because even though you think the areas are clean, there are a lot of stains still. Females usually tend to go in the same area, males are usually the ones that go everywhere( to mark their territory). One thing that may help is getting your male dog neutered and your female dog spayed. The second thing is to crate train them. As your dog gets use to its crate, the dog will realize that the house is it’s home. Generally speaking dogs are clean animals and like to keep their homes clean. You can search up for more tips about crate training online.
A couple of things are going on. One there was a change in the house. Good or bad, there was a change in the house. This may have caused the first pee and that’s all it take is once. Two.Once the pee smell is in the rug, it’s in the rug. Shampooing does not remove it. Take a look under the bottom and you’ll see the stains. Dogs sense of smell is 1000 or more better than ours. Down to the parts per million. She smells the little that is left there. This idea is reinforced by the fact you say she goes back to the same spot to potty. She smells the pee and is attracted to it and it triggers the need to potty (mark). You have a couple of choices. 1. Block access to the room that has the rug. 2. Confine her immediately at night after bringing her in (crate, X pen, baby gate, door closed in a room etc). 3. Remove the rug and replace it, doing a thorough cleaning of the remaining floor with bleach or vinegar to remove all urine smells. Avoid ammonia-based cleaners like PineSol as that can also trigger the need to mark.

By their nature, dogs are pack animals with a well-defined social order. Through basic training, you need to consistently make sure your puppy understands that you are the leader, not him. So in teaching him the basic rules, you take on the role of pack leader.
To fit into the family circle, your dog must be taught to recognize his name and such commands as come, heel, lie down and sit.
you should stay with them while they eat and let them out immediately. They could be expressing their displeasure at being locked up in the house all day. Huskies are very smart and very easily bored, You could have them let out during the day, so they are not just waiting all day for someone to show up.
Well, it sounds to me like you should retrain them. Take them on a leash to the EXACT same place every hour or two. It is possible that another animal close by is walking around where the dogs are supposed to do their business, or another animal is doing it’s business there.
Get a doggy door. Sounds like they are trying to get outside.
same as puppies
you have to train and supervise
leash and control
