Why is Jayda licking up her own urine off the tile?

When Jayda has an accident in the house she will try and lick it all up off the floor before I get to her. I tell her "no no" and take her immediately outside. She will not do this outside only in the house. Does anyone have any idea as to why she would do this? It's almost like she knows she shouldn't be going in the house and she's attempting to clean up her mess? I wouldn't think she would be able to think that much into it though. Any ideas?

What potty training method are you using? Have you scolded her for having an accident before?
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 actually think she is trying to clean it up before you get to it because she doesn't do that outside.

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.

Ugh she just did it again, and she was outside 45 mins ago and went pee already. I'm really starting to think she may have a UTI

45 minutes is a long time for a young puppy to wait to go potty- how old is she again? When we brought breezy home I took her out every 15 minutes if she wasn't in the crate
I would still get her checked for a uti and all that good stuff though

Well, she's around 12-13 weeks, and I realize she will have to go often but i'm nervous that's too often! Also like I said she's been drinking so much water which is another sign of a UTI. Also I should point out sometimes she pees a large puddle and other times a smaller puddle. Maybe it's just me freaking out (which my anxiety does to me at times) but I'm very nervous. I will prob see if they can get her in this saturday, because I don't know if I should wait a whole other week.

I remember when I brought Oliver my Papillon home at 11 weeks old he could hold his bladder for 2 hrs or more. I would take him out every 1.5-2 hours or so. I would think since Jayda is much bigger than Oliver was at that age she could hold her pee longer.

if you think its a UTI you can take a sample in without an appointment. That way you can get her checked without having pay an exam fee and wait.

Good idea! I hope I have luck capturing her pee though... that may be difficult. It's hard enough as it is... I take her outside and she knows I have a treat in my pocket so she is constantly jumping up at me trying to get it before she will even go potty. haha. She is very energetic. Once she gets all her shots next week and I'm sure she doesn't have ringworm I will be setting up puppy training classes with a great trainer in my area. I for the most part have trained Oliver on my own but I'm not the best and could learn a few things from a dog trainer. Jayda is VERY strong willed and is a wild child, so I need the help.
