'My dog messes in the house'

This user has a four-year-old dog that suddenly has started messing in the house at night. She is not sure what to do, or why this is happening, or how to clean the mess properly.

The Dog Behavioural Expert replies to these questions and gives some good advice to all dog owners who are experiencing this problem.

If you have a dog whose behaviour is problematic, why not ask the Dogl Behaviour Expert a question right here? Or if you would like to comment on some of the other users' questions your experiences might be very valuable.
