    My dog whines to go out, won't go, and the uses the floor, what's the deal?

    My dog, a black lab/chow mix has been a perfect example of dog training up until recently. We moved to a new location, and we understood the anxiety, but now they (we have two dogs) and we have settled in and our other dog is now the perfect one. They both whine to go out, and so we get up and take them on their leashes, Bo (the male) will immediately go potty and is ready to go back in, but Dixie (the female) just sniffs around and then goes inside and pees on the floor, right in front of us. We thought it was because she was independent, and didn't like being on her leash and being watched while she pottied. Since then, we've let her go without it, and that seemed to work, and she'd pee outside, but then poop at night right after we lie down for bed. Now, shes back to doing nothing, and just a moment ago, we took her out, and literally the second we walked back inside, she went over and peed in the floor. We caught her and told her "no" and she just looked at us and continued her business. She doesn't respond to any kind of discipline, and we've looked and looked for answers. This place just got new carpet, and we cant afford to replace it!!

    Please respond if you have any information on how to help correct this behavior.

    Kinda sounds like shes protesting. Is this the first move shes had, besides going to you as a pup (i assume)? make sure you give her BIG trouble when she goes potty in the house, bring her outside right after, even tho she wont do anything, just do it as a refresher. When you bring her inside after she asks for the door, but doesnt go... IMMEDIATLY put her in a kennel and shut it. ignore her for a bit.. like 2 or 3 hours... then take her straight back outside, if she doesnt go to the washroom, straight into the kennel she should go. and start rewarding them both when they go to the washroom outside. If only one goes to the washroom outside, only give that one a treat. If she is doing this at night, put her in a kennel for the night, and in the morning, staright outside, first thing you do when you open your eyes. The trick is to be stern and persistant... non-persistant training is no good, almost as if your doing nothing, remember that anytime you give in (letting her out of the kennel because shes whining, give her a treat when she didnt go out for the washroom) will reverse the training.

    I think that she is going through a confused state right now. The best thing to do would be to take her out several time for extended walks. It may be that it's just taking her a while to do her job. And of course praise her when she does do her job outside.
