Knuckles still urinating in house

Just a thought, but what kind of floors do you have in the house? If it's a porous floor (unsealed wood, tile, carpet and padding) and you don't get out every last bit of urine and scent, he could still be smelling the urine and feel that it's okay to pee in the house.

Our male puppy kept peeing right in front of the door from the house to the deck, and once we ripped up the carpeting and replaced it, he didn't pee there anymore. He was about 18 months when we did that.
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

Over the past three days Inara has begun peeing on the floor again. We'll let her out, and then maybe 20 minutes later we'll walk into the other room and there will be pee on the floor. It's extremely frustrating as she's been doing so well. Right now she only has access to two rooms (god bless baby gates) but I think I may restrict her back to one room for a while. Unfortunately, the one room she'd be in has carpet. Don't know. :|

My kitchen floor is vinyl and my livingroom and hallways are sealed hardwood. The only place I would have a problem with is the bedroom's which are carpeted. Except for this last time he really has never urinated on the carpet. I used Simple Solutions on the carpet which seems to be one of the better products for getting rid of urine smells on carpeting.

Have a great day!! :)

I know what you are saying about frustration. I too have a baby gate which mine blocks them in the kitchen.
