House Training: Lost with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction

Posted on: January 13, 2009

House training may go out the window and is a unpleasant symptom of Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. No matter how well your dog is house trained; there will be accidents if your dog has the disorder. Your dog may simply go outside and forget what they are outside for and come in and suddenly just go. An older dog has even been known to relieve themselves right in front of their owners. This can be very distressing for the older dog because they know it is wrong but they just can’t help themselves. This is also disturbing for the owners because this is one symptom that cannot be ignored. Retraining is out of the question. If they can’t remember training they have adhered to all their life, they won’t remember the training you administer now.
