Strange behavior!!!

Sahara has been housebroken now for 10 months, she never goes in the house until Monday. :mad: She peed in our bedroom and now I have found a wet spot in the living room. I have a doggie door and after I was sure she was housebroken I stopped taking her out to potty all the time. She always goes outside on her own, this behavior is new and I am pretty much :eek: perplexed by this new thing that she is doing! Do any of you veteran Basenji owners know what is going on b/c I sure don't. Since finding her wet spots I am now taking her out on a leash to go potty again, to remind her where she is to go. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!! 😃

Could she be coming into heat?

I ask because every time Jazzy is coming into heat, she begins to leave trails in the house. I just assumed it was so the males would know where to find her – not that there are any males around, but still she hopes, LOL.

Have her checked for a urinary tract infection 🙂

Abby is also potty trained and ten months old and she has peed on the couch a couple of time recently and she is in heat, she has never done this before she was in heat and I hope that she will stop peeing when she's done with her cycle.

Thanks for the advice but she has been spaded, so not that.😕 She is 1yr. 3mos., I can't figure it out. There have been no accidents since then, someone suggested that maybe she was mad. I will have her checked for an urinary tract infection, thanks again!!!! Since I have been taking her out on a leash she goes jolly on the spot, no delay. Go Figure!!!! You gotta love those Basenjis!!!!!:D

And consider that she is "marking" the bed as hers…. but first rule out the UTI...
And for those of you with bitches in season... for sure they mark.....

An old old timers hint for UTI and prevention thereof. My parents where famous for taking in various and sundry strays canine and feline many lived to be very old - they ALWAYS added a little bit of cranberry juice to any food being fed. Not one animal ever had a UTI - could be a coincedence but then again…...

Our girl K.D. has been housebroken for 3 yeasr. Last spring she had bladder stones which were misdiagnosed leading to emergency surgery. ever since she has had urinary problems and accidents in the house. Her urine is so acidic, it ate the wax off of our floor tile, however she's not in any pain.

We've taken her to specialists and they give us anti-biotics, special foods, supplements, etc.

We love her. but she's ruining our house and costing a fortune. We canceled a planned vacation to pay off $5k in vets bills.

Any hints or ideas would be appreciated.

I think more information is needed, first has she been tested for Fanconi? Has she been tested for Diabetes? What kind of urinary problems other then accidents in the house? Is she drinking large amounts of water? Has a full blood panel workup been done? Have they tried an ultrasound? Do they think it is a result of missing the stones?

My african girl did the peeing on the bed, and a few times in the house. We put a baby gate on the bedroom door and the b's are not allowed in there, until we go to bed.
Before we go to bed, we make sure all dogs are walked. I figured out my girl was telling me she didn't like me working these long hours, and not taking her for walks…not just for peeing, but for exercise. Could that be what your b is telling you? After ruling out physical issues that is....

I think you should go back to your vets especially as this has been happenig ever since the emergency surgery. It could just be coincidence I suppose, but if she were mine I'd want to check. As Pat says more information is needed before suggestions can be given.
