Yorkie peeing on floors

by Alisa

My one year old Yorkie Poodle is peeing on our floors upstairs. He has been nuetered already. We were told this would stop. What is the matter?

Hi Alisa,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Neutering usually doesn't solve behavior problems.

Your dog has learned to do this and now we just have to teach him how to do it outside.

You could start by closing the doors or keeping your dog from going upstairs for the next week and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't you could go back to crate training the dog again if the dog is alone or unsupervised when this happens.

Same problem
by: Anonymous

I've had two yorkies. One I have now. This has always been a problem.It seems to be a yorkie trait especially for the males. It is not behavorial.....I refuse to believe that. However I am at a loss as to what it is or how to stop it. I have tried everything. My dog has ruined my kitchen floor. It has a smell that I cannot get rid of. He also pees on the carpet and no amount of shampooing gets rid of it. I will NEVER get a yorkie or small again after this.....

Oh man can I relate!!!
I have two yorkies peeing all over my house! Ages 1 and 5 !!
They are and have been trained for ages. All of a sudden they are doing this.
