Angry House Training Problems after Neutering

I have an 8 Month old Chihuahua named Ben who I was so proud of when I finally got him fully house trained, No pee pads, Only going outside to do his business.

I got him neutered a couple of weeks ago and noticed about a week ago that he was having a lot of accidents in the house. More frequent than when he was a puppy even. Nothing has changed about how often he goes out or how much I am feeding him etc it's just like all of a sudden he isn't trained at all.

Has anyone else experienced this after neutering? Ben has never been a marker (although he didn't hit a heat) and to be honest barely had any accidents at all 8 weeks up until a week ago. I mean.. Lots of accidents. Peeing everywhere.

YES I experienced this a few times. It could be simply from the trauma of
neutering, and will pass with time. OR it could be an infection, so to be on
the safe side I'd get him checked out by your vet.

Jaxx did this after being neutered too. I took him back to the vet just to make sure there wasn't an infection and thankfully there wasn't.
I just started back at square one with Jaxx and made sure he was never out of my sight when he wasn't in his crate and taking him out like he was a puppy.
Good luck! I am sure he will be back to his normal self soon.

Thanks for your responses. I have had him checked and it isn't an infection. I actually brought back out his puppy play pen and now have him in that at night, I love him but jeez - Im tired of washing everything he pees on.

His wound area is already pretty much healed, No scab or anything so at least thats good.. I just cant wait for his phase he's going through to be over. We get another Chi november 23rd and Im hoping he has his stuff figured out by then. We did put a pee pad down just in case as well.

This is what could be causing the confusion- "we did put a pee pad down just in case". You are causing to be confused in my opinion. When a dog gets to do their business inside and outside then I think the become quite confused. Pick which method works better for you and stick with it (either going inside or outside).

YES!




Kellie, I just want to add that simply because his outside wound is almost healed,
does not mean he is done healing, the internal wound takes much longer. So
give it time, stick to one method and never blame the dog, you must set him
up for success by watching him like a hawk for signals( just like when he was
a young pup) and add in extra potty breaks just to be safe, for now, while he
heals.

I should have really should have explained the pee pad thing better - In the past lets say week he has had a pee pad down for 2 days, the rest of the five he is peeing on the bed, couch, if a sock is on the floor he will pee on it. He avoids using the pee pad at all cost - but it's there. I do still let him outside regularly. I work from home so he is never out of my sight, Sometimes I'm sitting right next to him when he pees.

I don't scold or get mad at him, I clean it up and say nothing of course - I know better than to get mad at him for something he can't control.

Does anyone know how long the inner healing usually takes? I heard 4-6 weeks some places etc

Pick up any and all things with the same/similar material to pee pads. Don't allow him up on furniture (including your bed). Keep a very close eye on him and start him out like he's a baby puppy again. Take him out every 20-30 minutes. Right after he drinks and about 10 minutes after he eats.
Watch his behaviour. Does he circle? Does he lift his leg? Does he sniff the ground a lot? He gives indicators and you simply have to watch for them.
