One year old started peeing/pooping in the house - is it the weather?
Lucy will be one year old next Tuesday. We originally crate trained her but she now has freedom and we put the crate away. For the past few months she very very rarely ever had an accident in the house. Lately, she has been having a lot of accidents including this morning and we know she had already been out AND we were around. She didn't let us know at all that she needed to go again.
It has been extremely cold lately and we know she isn't tolerating going out very well. Could this be the reason for this? What can we do? When she went in the house this morning it isn't a time she would have normally been crated anyway? Do we just keep a very close eye on her for a while, or should we bring back the crate?
