This is a yearly thing with her and I so far have not been able to stop it. EVERY year, around the middle of summer till fall, we have monsoon season. It gets humid, the ground stays wet, it rains a lot. Bailey refuses to go outside to pee. She is peeing in the house without fail, every day, at least 3 times a day. She WAS going in my room, but I cleaned it and treated the carpet so now she's going in the kitchen under the kitchen table. I take her outside, she won't go. Crating her really is not an option and here is why. Before I had her, one of her previous owners had her crated 12 hrs a day so she actually shuts down if you crate her. She sees the crate as a punishment since another previous owner of hers threw her in the crate whenever she had accidents in his apartment, which was always, because he never walked her. She does this even if we are home, so she would have to be crated like 24/7. I'm trying to take her out when I KNOW she has to go, like when we first wake up, and before bed. SOMETIMES she will go out there on her own. Shes only peeing in the house so its not like she never goes out. I just can't take it anymore. I might be moving to a new house with BRAND NEW carpets, and if this isn't resolved by then I am just going to crate her whenever I leave, and give her a kong to help her deal. I just hate seeing her shut down. I am also switching her food. I am going to buy her probably Innova EVO. She needs to be on grain free, and she only eats like 1/2 cup a day, so it'll last a while. I just can't afford to feed her a half cup, Kody a cup, and Chance 2 1/2 cups of food a day at that price. Bailey is struggling with weight right now, so that may be contributing to why she is so lazy. Actually, I'm sure of it, lol. Bad pic but you can tell how lean she was. She's put on a few We're also going to start going back to the DP now that it's cooling down. I just want my old baby to be happy. She's going to be 6 in October, and I want her comfortable and as healthy as I can get her.
