Potty Problems ARGH

So, Harriet is nearly 10 months old, and we thought, housebroken. The last two mornings, however, the alarm goes off, we (Harriet and whoever drew the short, cold straw that morning) get out of bed to take her out (we don't have a fenced yard, so we have to actually take her out), she has gotten out of bed when we did, and went to the dining room and peed on the rug. We are literally 3 steps behind her. She does it so fast we don't see her do it. Does anyone have advice for me to stop this?

She's had urinary tract infections in the past, so we've had a rocky road to housebreaking, but she's not exhibiting any of the signs of one of those right now.

We clean that rug with enzyme cleaner, would it be a waste of my time to run a spot bot over it?

Frustrated! :confused:

run the bot first then enzyme cleaner doing so in the reverse order with suck up the enzyme cleaner making its use useless.

that the problem IMHO basset are much slower at gaining sphinter control than other breeds which leads to much of the problem. Grab the leash put it on her while she is still in bed and head directly outside without stoping.
She's become a heat hog, sitting in front of the heater. If that's it, what do I do?
Could be just as some dog do not like the rain.

1. do not give her the oppurtunity to go in the house. Return to a shedual

2. I think part of the not liking the rain and/or cold have something to do with human atttudes as well. Go out with her in these conditions and make it fun being out their as well as during nicer weather.

3. Confirm there is not a medical issue with the heat seeking like a thyroid issue,
