She could be trying to keep her area clean too I suppose.
Also, it's not pretty, but sometimes they just do it because it tastes good. :/ I'd take her outside more frequently to try to cut the number of accidents, and clean up the ones she does have immediately
I just say NO and take her outside immediately. I don't scream or hit her, there's no reason for her to be "scared" of having an accident. I will be honest I am having some difficulty as I think she may have came from the shelter with ringworm and it's hard to watch both of my pups at once. I have to keep them separated right now, but can't leave one in the crate as they have been crated all day while I'm at work. She's not having a ton of accidents been when she does have them she always licks up her pee. It's just sometimes outside she will pee on the concrete and could easily lick it up but never does. I guess I was just wondering why she only does this in the house. Also she seems to drink a ton of water and pees A LOT. Sometimes twice within an hours time. I'm going to bring this up when I go to the vet next saturday.
