It could possibly be a UTI, but at her age I suspect it's just the fact that she can't hold her bladder yet.

I haven't had a puppy in years, but I do remember having to take them out every hour or so to take care of business. I hope she's not alone in the shop!

good luck with her and post pics when you can!

Do you mean she pees everytime you approach her? If so, it could be a submissive behavior. My solution to that has always been to just ignore the dog and let her come to you. Here is a link to a discussion on submissive urination:

If she is actually peeing so frequently that it seems abnormal, I would definitely have the vet checkher out- UTIs are not uncommon-

I thought Fred had a problem, but as previously stated, puppies that young do not know how to hold their water yet. I had to take Fred out every 15-30 minutes when he was a little pup until he was about 9mths old. Even in the middle of the night at around 2 or 3am, I had to get up and take him out. Everytime he peed or pooped, I gave him a treat and lots of praise. THEY LOVE THAT! Once he got used to the routine, he learned that he is to pee and poop outside and not in the house. He will now bark (late at night) or run to the door and scratch it (in the daytime), to let me know he needs to go out. He holds his water pretty good now and he haven't had an accident in a long while. With a basset, you have to be VERY patient when it comes to house training. They tend to be a bit head-strong and independent. Start taking her out every 15 -30 minutes, especially 15 minutes after play, after she drinks her water, and after mealtime. When you take her out, and she does her business (pee or poop), give her a treat and lots of praise. It may seem burdensome and tiring at first, but it will pay off in the end.

Please, take heed to the advice from the posters on this board. They have helped me TREMENDOUSLY with Fred when things come up that I don't know how to handle. The first time I posted on here was when I was house training Fred and thanks to their basset expert advice, I have him housebroken now and I know what to do and what NOT to do. All of us on here love our bassets and any advice that you are given will go a long way. Take it from me, it WORKS.

Hello,

When Jasper was a puppy, he peed a lot and it seemed all the time. It took almost six months to housebreak him, I think bassets tend to be a little slow to housetrain. Anyone else have a puppy that took awhile longer than other breeds?

Jasperspet (aka Colleen)
