Our 1.5 yr old girl is so inconsistent with her potty habits. I need help and guidance as to what we can do . She has a 1 yr old Maltese mix brother.. no blood relation. Both neutered/ spayed.
Usually she will scratch the door to go out as we trained her but about twice a week I have found she has gone on the kitchen rug. I have removed that rug but I know she will try to find another place.
Her brother never has an accident.
What can I do????
Thanks for any help. We love her sooo much.

Have vet check for UTI---very common problem!
Also, girls who are neutered early can develop incontinence issues. My Lisi did after her cancer surgery---she leaks, not really peeing. It is usually medical if they were consistent before this.

Shes pretty young still. Sounds like you need to reinforce potty training again. It wouldnt hurt to go back to when you started training her, whether it was crate training, xpen et. until she can be trusted again.
My oldest one will sometimes pee and once she starts, it becomes habitual. I put her in the xpen until she can be trusted again. Sometimes she will be good for 6 months, a year and then she’ll pee and the cycle begins.
