If we force her, she pees in the hall as soon as we walk out the door (apartment bldg). She has a spot outside and goes to it automatically. It’s just getting her there. She’s getting too big to carry.
We have a 3 yr old goldendoodle, Jack. If Jack is going out with her, she usually doesn’t freeze up. she comes Running and still pees the minute we step on the hall. I know she can hold it. She sleeps through the night 8 hrs. And has been left as much as 3 hrs during the day with no accidents. (She is confined to our kitchen when nobody is home to watch her).
