Accidents at night.
Hi, my 2 Jack Russels (6 years old) are house trained, but recently one of them started having accidents in the house at night. I wish I knew which one it was. I take them out before I go to bed at night and they (one specifically)wakes me up to go out when she needs to go out. Could they/ one of them have a UTI or is this just bad behaviour? They used to have the odd accident after I have been away from home for a few nights, but for the past 2 months I haven''t travelled at all. It''s dreadfull to step into an accident while still half asleep!. Please don''t tell me to let them sleep outside!. Your advice would be much appreciated.

Dear Marelize

Rule out crystals/UTI first before you try all sorts of things.
