Drew Orleans He has been in his kennel all day the past two days as well. Our normal walker couldn't come at lunch Monday and Tuesday so he was in there for 7-8 hours unfortunately. He's only 11 weeks old.

Drew Orleans The being afraid this morning is still stumping me though

Shade UTI's will also make them want to pee more frequently and their bladder control can suffer. You can try adding some all natural cranberry juice (unsweetened with nothing added) or some apple cider vineger to the water as a natural way of helping him out. If that doesn't help within a day or two I'd be bringing him to the vet for a formal diagnosis

Drew Orleans He was weird when I crought him out the 2nd time to poo.

But 2 hours later was walking around normal when my wife brought him out.

It’s more the fact it wasn’t a one time thing that has me hesitating. If something spooked him once then I could see him avoiding going outside even when he really had to pee, but bouncing back the next time as the thing that spooked him probably has passed. You can try walking outside with him and see if he calms by your presence, inspect everything and see if you can notice something obvious which may freak him out or hurt him.

With a UTI it's painful so he would avoid the action. If he sees going outside and knowing his duty is to do his business and he knows it'll hurt he'll react adversely to going outside. If he’ll still hesitating after you’ve ruled out something environmental than I would look at physical causes

s14roller When we first got our pup home the first night, we took her in the front yard and she didn't want to go. It might have been too many things outside. In the morning, we let her out in the backyard and it was A-OK. After she got situated, she could pee in any yard.

Drew Orleans Yeah.

Very patient too.

I wonder if he has a UTI and is afraid to go because it hurts? Doesn't explain why he would walk away from the door though.

Blanketback Are you going outside with him, walking him to where you want him to go?
