This is for adult dogs.

I wanted to know how many times you guys let out your huskies to pee not considering their walks.

Mine had an accident today because I forgot to take him out after his first walk and he had held it in for about 8 hours. I initially thought he wasn't learning but now I'm thinking it's because I don't let him out to pee enough.

His schedule is:

7am-wake up, eat,--go for a walk
1pm- pee break
6pm- eat--go for a walk
10pm-pee before bed


When he has had an accident it's usually because I forgot to take him out at the 1pm mark.

Your schedule is okay for a starting point. It also depends on the dog's activity level and how much water they drink. Mine will need to go out 4 or more times in the evening because they are very active and are drinking a lot of water. Have you done bell training or do your dogs have tells that you watch for?

@kavik_the_Havoc made a good suggestion if your dogs aren't vocal about "Daddy, LET ME OUT"!!! Then see if you can introduce them to bell training. A search turns up all kinds of comments about bell training.

My eldest doesn't warn me too well, but I also expect that she doesn't have much of a warning.  My other two will go and stand by the door - which I can see out of the corner of my eye - until I let them out.
(( With the heat we've been having 105°+ the problem is getting them to go out, 'course, when I do it's piddle, "LET ME IN!!"  They have shade and cool rocks under the porch and water on the porch but for some reason they'd rather be in here then out there! ))

Haha oddly enough he does know how to let me know when he has to go pee. I have never taught him but since he was young he would go up to the door knob and tap it with his muzzle, making a slight sound that I can hear.

But on occasion he would just pee on the same carpet even without letting me know if I don't take him out around 1-2pm.


....But I think I may need to take him out more. I just realized this after asking you all and looking online, because I thought adult dogs can hold in their pee for 6+ hours without needing to be taken out.

A long, long time ago in a place far, far away I had a black lab (Lady) I was living in Houston and my aunt was living in Lake Charles, La. I needed to go over to help with some legal paperwork and expected it to be a one afternoon trip so, since I expected to be back in 6-8 hours I left Lady in Houston.
Well, as with all things legal I didn't get back that evening, in fact I didn't get back till almost noon the next day. Lady had been trapped in the house for just about 24 hours ... needless to say when I opened the door she was out like a shot! I didn't think she was ever going to stop peeing!!

She knew that it wasn't right to pee in the house and if I'd been there she'd have been out several times ... but she held it till I got home. (( Don't ask what would have happened if I hadn't made it home when I did, I don't even want to think about it! ))

So, yes an adult dog *can* hold it; most easily hold it overnight - something like 6-10 hours? It depends, I think, upon the disapproval they sense when they don't and their willingness to tolerate some discomfort.

I'm also betting that you're missing a cue when he wets on the carpet ...

That part of the carpet he's peeing on probably needs to be replaced. The smell of his past pee will encourage him to keep using that spot. If he's going there despite being taken out it's likely he just keeps marking the spot to refresh the pee smell.

I have a similar issue with squirt. Sometimes i think its revenge. I dont see her most of the day but from when she wants out at about 6 until i let her out during the evening news, she will scratch the door to let me know she wants out. After her 5ish outside time she wont scratch and she cant seem to make it from 5ish to 8pm without peeing on the floor. But between her last time out around 830 until i let her out in the am no accidents and during the day no accidents.

My others have indoor outdoor access as long as the weather is ok

Your right, I probably scrubbed the smell into the carpet, because he never pees on the hardwood floor just the same carpet.

It’s a shag carpet so I probably need to replace it...Shame it was expensive and really nice Sad

I always get frustrated when I see he has had an accident and feel like he is doing it because he is just too lazy. But soon after I realize how dumb this thought was haha

Yeah...Carpet isn't great with dogs. Once they pee on it the urine never truly comes out and repeat peeing is almost guaranteed. Sometimes the part that is peed on can be cut out and replaced if you don't want to remove the whole carpet. But I always advise getting rid of any and all carpet. Especially with animals. It's just cleaner to have any other kind of flooring.

Our dog easily makes it from 8am to 5pm, even though I work from home...
Even at 5pm, he does not seem urgent and is just walking and sniffing around until he finds the Right Bush.

His schedule is:
7-8am long morning walk+breakfast
1pm lunch
5-6pm long evening walk + dinner
9pm potty outing

There have been times when he fell deeply asleep and didn't want his 9pm outing...and just made it until the next morning. I guess he has an "iron bladder" or something?

Al has a good point about the cues!
Ours is pretty fastidious - if he needs to pee, poo or vomit, he will pace restlessly...Once my dog was pacing restlessly up and down in the front hallway for 20 minutes! I cut off phone call with client and took him out, and he had diarrhea right in the front yard, poor guy. So yours may be giving some signs (pacing? turning? sniffing?) before doing the deed....

But yea, it sounds like your dog may have accepted that part of the carpet as one of the "pee spots". He probably doesn't fully understand that he should always go Outside!


PS We were told by vet to feed multiple small meals a day...he is a bloat/GDV survivor. That's why he has breakfast lunch and dinner! How often do you let out your Huskies to pee? 1f600

Sasha, my old girl, seems to be having trouble knowing when she needs to go - until she has to go. I get very little warning - and a lot of wet spots in the kitchen (Oh, well)

Quite honestly, I often don't see her pacing until it's too late - my fault - and I'm late for supper and she's letting me know it!
