Senior dogs may face urinary issues. Understanding their needs and challenges is the first step in addressing the problem.
Schedule a vet checkup to rule out underlying health issues causing accidents. Senior dogs may experience urinary tract problems.
Establish a consistent feeding and bathroom routine to help your senior dog know when and where to go.
Take your senior dog for more frequent bathroom breaks, especially after meals or waking up.
Clean up accidents promptly using enzymatic cleaners to eliminate odors that may attract your dog to the same spot.
Use positive reinforcement when your senior dog pees outside. Praise and treats can reinforce good behavior.
Consider crate training to prevent accidents when you can't supervise your senior dog.
