i have a question regarding SA

if i decrease the size of djangos space when left behind giving him less area to pee, will this help with the SA or is it what it is? i don't know if the SA is because he misses me when gone or is it just anxiety of having to pee when we are gone and knowing he has to go inside. the vet thinks its the latter of the 2.

Does he use his inside potty area when you're there. ? Space usually has no bearing on S.A. Dog's don't think into the future. He is worried that presently you are leaving.

he always pees outside when we are home, never had an accident when we are home, only pees on the pads when we leave him for a couple of hours.

Yeah ,like I added to my original post , I don't think he;s worried about having to pee later on.

Vet thinks it is nervous peeing?

I leave the pad out for Gucci and she will sometimes use it, however...there have been a few times she's peed on the floor when she is upset that we aren't there, the last time that comes to mind was a thunderstorm, and I *knew* she was home scared and wanted to get home quickly (we were at dinner after my son's graduation) and sure enough, came home to a mess.. I think it was because she was upset and nervous.

i agree, and have to disagree with the vet this time. i think it's SA. we were gone 2 weekends in a row and django didin't have time to readjust to things before we left again. he became very clingy when we returned from our second trip, sleeps right next to me. etc. etc. i have gone back to basics, training sessions throughout the day, going outside for a few and leaving him inside. i thought about stuffing a kong with frozen turkey to keep busy for an extended period of time, all i know is i hate this and need to fix it for his sake.
