We got a new dog about a month ago from a "foster" home through the Humane Society. She is a real sweetie, about a year old. Other than chewing EVERYTHING is sight, despite the chew toys, bones, etc, that we have for her, she's a perfect fit for our family.<br><br>
HOWEVER.........<br><br>
She <b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">was</span></b> housebroken when we got her and has used the doggie door from the get go. (She had a doggie door at her foster home) But, after a thunder storm this past weekend, she has started occasionaly pooping and peeing in the house<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I've used one of those enzyme cleaners that's suppose to totally remove the smell, closed off areas where she's gone, but she still seems to be going at least once a day, either pee or poop in the house. We have even caught her in the act and scolded her, but it hasn't stopped. Everything else in our home, routine, etc. is the same.<br><br>
Why is she doing this? Suggestions?<br><br>
Thanks,<br>
Sandra

Try posting over in the Pets section, youll get tons of advice!<br><br>
Do you use a crate with her? Is she getting enough walks?

Two words - crate training.
