Connie has been with us for 5 days now, she was previously on a farm and had not had any training at all. She took to using a puppy pad or newspaper straight away and hasn't had any accidents at all.
However we have noticed today that she has been peeing excessively, i.e. every 15 minutes or so. She is drinking a lot as we have water readily available so thats probably the main reason, also shes very active and we have central heating on (which she isn't used to, having lived her first 4 months in a barn in straw).
Just wondering if this sounds normal, its a long time since my older 2 were puppies!
Its not unusual for a young puppy to pee several times an hour. However, if this is a big change in her behavior, you might have her checked for a Urinary Tract Infection. Take a sample of her pee (catch it in a cup!) to your vet for analysis. It should not be very expensive.
