Hi,

I have a female Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd mix puppy, she is 6 months old.

She is basically potty trained and has been for about two months now (except for a few accidents). She sleeps through the night with no accidents at all and can easily go 6 hours during the day time without going peeing inside.

However, almost ever since we got her (at 2 months old), she has done this thing where she will pee like 3-5 times when we go outside to go potty/on a short 5-10 minute walk in around the block.

It seems that she pees for way longer the first time she pees outside, and then the rest of the times she pees just a tiny amount.

I'm worried something is wrong with her, but at the same time she can hold it just fine indoors and she is a very happy, energetic girl, so I don't know if it's just weird puppy behavior or what. Maybe I'm just worrying for nothing but if anyone has had a similar experience I'd love to hear more!

Thanks,

Nadia

Sometimes females are worse about marking on top of where another dog has peed than the males are. As long as you have had her checked that she does not have a UTI, I would not worry about it.

When we decided we should have a dog, I specifically did not want a male, that would stop at every tree and bush to pee. Well, our little female, it turns out is worse as far as stopping at trees, shrubs, corners of walls and just sniffing in general. Part of it, I know, is her naturally curious nature, she just needs to explore everything. Needless to say after ten years, she and I understand each other pretty well on our walks. It does make relatively short walks take a long time to accomplish, but since it is essentially her walk, I tend to give in a lot.

I understand the frustration and agree with the posts of others. I would make a suggestion to maybe take her out more often as well, if that’s possible. I used to take mine out every couple of hours for a ten minute walk. He liked that.
Good luck.
