Hello everyone
My boyfriend and I are proud owners of a 3yo bulldog bitch named Daisy. We only got her a week and a half ago from a private kennel and we were told that she was house trained. The first day she wouldn't come out of the house at all, on the second day, she peed in front of us when we were having dinner (charming!), then the next morning she pooped and peed in the same place. We moved her at nights, from the living room to the kitchen and she knows she sleeps there. Since the second day, we take her out early in the morning, then at 2 o'clock, then about 4 pm and then at night. We think she now knows that she musn't poop in the house, as she does it always outside, but for some reason, she continues to pee in the house. Last night, she peed in her bed and stayed there until we noticed in the morning.
Can someone give us any tips on how to train her?

Thanks a lot!

Sometimes when a dog is put into a new enviroment and in this case also
new owners, she may be feeling unsure of what is happening and unsecure.
Dogs will pee to establish their scent in the house and especially in their bed.
Most of us have problems with our bullys scenting their bed. We wash their
bedding and they pee right back on it. Just a part of their nature. Just give
her reassurance that you love her and that all is well for her in your home.
Stay consistant with taking her out and make sure she pees before you
bring her back in. When you have a chance, get her a kennel. It comes in
handy so many times and they really do feel secure inside it.
Congrats on your new dog and good luck.

We didn't get her a kennel cos it look like she felt really safe in her bed. Today is the second day on a row that she has peed on the bed. We were told that she hasn't got any health problems but want to go to the vet with her as soon as possible, just to be sure.
As for her routine, we take her out 4 to 6times a day (early morning, midday, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and around 10ish). As I say, she poos outside but has rarely peed outside. We want to catch her in the act but she usually does it in the middle of the night when we're all asleep. We tried to put some nappy training pads and she ignores them completely. We underestand is going to take long, but we as it looks to be going worst, we don't want her to get used to do it in the house. Wouldn't this be the case if she got a kennel? She would probably pee in the kennel and if we have to choose, we'd rather clean the floor that have her in a kennel where she pees aswell.
As a rule, dogs do not like to pee in their crate if they are going to have to be
in it unless the crate is too big for her. She just needs enough room to stand up,
turn around and lay down. Correcting a behavior can take a little time, but if you
are consistant and follow the correct procedures she will learn. It just takes patience
and keep giving her that love.
