    Default Please help...potting in house after being gone

    Last Thursday my family and I left for a small vacation. I had a friend come over and house/dog sit. We have 3 dogs a German short haired pointer, a lab and my baby Bentley who is the English bulldog. My husband got home late Sunday night to find out one of the dogs had pooped downstairs and peed as well. Which we aren't very happy about. My dogs don't do this in the house. I got home on Monday to find more pee spots my husbands didn't find. Still not knowing which dog it is. Well my Bentley, The EBD, has now pooped 3 times and peed right in front of me. He was totally house trained. When I see it, he puts his ears down as he knows it's wrong. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?? I am so frustrated at this point. Bentley is 10 months old.

    Me thinks that Bentley was very upset with you leaving. His normal schedule was probably also messed up.He is telling you that he was not happy with you leaving him like that! Try to get him back to his regular schedule=/start over as if he is a pup. Praise him when he goes outside and give him a treat. Someone else might have started it-but "monkey see,monkey do" so it has been said! I believe with patience, he will get back to normal.

    I agree with Lynn 100% - I would not worry, nor would I punish her, I think she is showing you that she's upset you guys left. Bullies are very sensitive and don't like change. Tyson has done this as well to us when we left for a weekend or even just moved a piece of furniture. Just be patient, she'll be back to normal once she gets back into her normal routine.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    The same thing happens with Henry and has for quite some time. He took a long time to potty train. And even when he was complete trained if his schedule got messed up he would pee in the house. Usually on a rug. When he goes through that I keep him crated when we're gone. He is a year and a half now and about 3 mints ago was his last accident. If I'm going to leave him out when I leave I keep him in the kitchen/dining room with baby gates up so he has lots of room but if there's an accident its in on linoleum and it's easy to clean up. He knows he's not supposed to pee and always looks sad. I dont get mad I just say "Henry what did you do" and he drops his ears and looks sad. It's kind of the cutest thing ever.

    Agreed Bulldogs seem to be very sensitive to change, and should not take long to get it back in order when he settled again. You have received great advice
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    agree with the gang --- schedule and routine were unset and once he is settled back in, things will be fine
