Monique, you posted below on Canine Club but we need a little more information!

1. How long have YOU had her?

I can't quite work out if this is a dog YOU have had for a long time and this is just a new behavior (the dog is newly having accidents in the house) or if this dog is new to you -- although it is not a puppy??

Which way to help you would be determined by your answer!

2. If this is a dog you've had for some time but this is a brand new problem, PLEASE take her to the vet. She likely has a urinary tract infection.

Punishing her is NOT going to help. There is a reason!!

If a dog has a urinary tract infection (which happens a LOT with an older female dog) then she may be drinking more (because drinking more makes it burn less when she goes - they're smart!) But if she's drinking more than normal then she can't hold it as long.

3. Is she on any kind of medicine already?

And Monique -- please do us a favor -- turn OFF your caps lock. It's very very difficult to read and it is like you are yelling at us!
