Why do female dogs pee so much?

I didnt have this problem with my male....She squats and soaks everything...Thank god I have tile, she goes atleast 10 times a day in the house, I keep the mop at bay... How do you train your female dog to stop peeing so much in the house... and she poos alot too...I dont know where shes getting the food to poo.. I feed her twice a day, she loves water though. Her tail wags crazy when she drinks...I dont think shes sick or anything because she isnt lethargic or anything and shes hyper...I praise her when she goes outside, but the minute she comes in she does it....the minute I turn my back she goes...in every corner of the house...she just doesnt get it.. any tips?

I think part of it is the difference it position. A males stream splashes when it hits the ground, where as females squat right down to it and pee, no splashing.

How are you feeding? You should have SET feeding times followed by SET potty times. the same every day all the time. Don't leave her water down for her freely if you think that may be a problem also. Maybe look at how much you are feeding her as well and what quality of food. If she is pooing a lot it means she is not getting much out of her food and there is a lot of filler/waste in it. Do you think she may be a happy pee'er? when she gets excited might tinkle a little too much.

Just some ideas!

I havent seen her get excited and pee...Like if I come home she knows to run to the back door to go out... i feed her nutro large breed puppy.. the silver bag... I think its decent food.. She does drink alot of water but I was told that they should always have water available..But I think shes like me, I drink water when Im not even thirsty..and she drinks alot!

I haven't ever noticed differences between a male and female's peeing habits lol. I guess just watch more closely and pay attention. Like what bedlam said.. set a feeding time and don't leave water out for her to drink. Also, when you see them sniffing you should take her out to pee. She may have the mindset that the house is an okay place to pee now. Try using treats as well as praise when you take her outside to go potty.

Water should be left down at all times UNLESS you have a dog that will drink themselves sick. I had a dog that would CONSTANTLY drink until he got so bloated he could barely move. YOu can also try a water bottle, like ones they use for rodents only bigger size (like maybe rabbit size) that way she can't get as much water at one time.

I havent tried the treat praising when it comes to outside.. she is a very intelligent dog.. At 3 months she knows how to sit and paw already..

but out of all of my dogs, and I've raised 4 including her... she pees the most. I take her out she pees and sometimes she doesnt poo... I come inside, turn my back for about 5 mins step outside my room and step right in pee... turn the corner.. surprise poo!...take her outside she does nothing because she did it in the house... I've caught her squating before said NO!!!!!!! grab her take her outside.. she does nothing..so I know the key is to praise when she does it outside...and get mad when she does it inside...but its been going on now for 2 months!!! im sick of mopping and picking up poo in every corner... and shes the first dog I had that poos twice in a row... shell poo walk and poo again... everytime her poo comes in pairs!

Fury is a crazy water drinker and I don't leave the water down anymore. At first I left the water down but as you have describeed it was horrible. I don't have tile on ALL my floors so carpet cleaning is expensive. I give her water when I get up in the mornings along with food and then take her out. When I get home from work around 2 I give her more water and take her out. When we are home all day I'll give her more water than usual because she loves it so much and I can keep an eye on her. Before bed she is fed and watered again unless it has been down all day and is then taken out. Been doing this now for a mo. and the accidents are considerably way less than before.

I could never feed mines at bed time. she goes int he cage and leave all kinds of ncie surprises in the morning... tis crazy because most dogs dont like to go in there own space, she doesnt mind ti at all.. shes a dirty dog...she pees in her cage and poos in the corner in her cage all the time

Well, it sounds like you're doing the potty training as well as you can hmmm... Maybe she just wants attention. Maybe she thinks that pottying anywhere results in attention. Bad/good attention probably doesn't matter to her, so don't get mad at all when she has an accident. If that might not be it stop the praising her dirty deed altogether i guess. Just walk her until she does her business and don't praise.

Then her crate is too big. Stand up, turn a tight circle, lay down. No more space than that.
personally I feed once in the morning at 7am, and at night at 7pm, let hem run around play poo outside and bed at 9. No accidents in the crates, ever. If you feed at night you need to leave enough time for them to poo/pee before you crate them.

I agree with Bedlam. My kids are crated and rotated so everyone is on a schedule. I don't feed Fury after 8 and we are in bed by 10 so she gets play time anbd she sleeps good at night.

I don't think your problem is gender-based. My 4-year-old girl pees probably 3 times a day, maybe 4. My 16-month female does about the same. Our boy does a few more than that because he likes to take shorter pees in different spots.

3 months old? A little puppy is going to pee that many times in a day. And dogs housebreak at different rates. Loki was housebroken by the time she was about 5 months old. Terra had accidents all the way up until she was probably a year. And it wasn't because I was doing anything different, but because she simply wasn't ready to be housebroken.

Don't rush this pup. Just be consistent and she'll get the picture eventually. In the meantime, restrict her freedom and her water. She only needs about an ounce of water per her body weight, and she doesn't need to drink it all at once. Lots of praise when she potties outside.

I have a 2 month old pit named Sadie. She is doing the same thing she goes to the bathroom often in the house but I am being patient and my family and I are trying to make sure she goes out more. And I like the idea of the bell on the door Im going to try that.
