My female english bulldog is around 8-9 months old and the last 3 weeks she has been peeing in the house even shortly after being outside. She use to be able to go 3-4 hours before she wanted to go outside and would sort of let us know that she wanted out. Lately she has peed about 9 times in the house on the floor without warning us besides peeing in her crate. Last night I took her out and stood out in the 11 degree temp. for about 15 minutes and she pooped but wouldn't pee and then wanted back in. Well 10 minutes after coming inside she sneaked over to an area and started to pee. She isn't peeing in the same spots on the carpet either and there hasn't been dog pee in those areas before. We didn't have a problem before with her peeing in the house after we got her housebroken. She would usually sleep all night in her crate and do fine when we had to put her in her crate for a couple hours while we were gone. I'd take her out before putting her in and take her right outside after. She just started this right before Thanksgiving when it got cold out and started snowing. She also started trying to drink more water which I know will make her want to pee more but I've been taking her outside more to try to make up for that. While outside she keeps eating the snow the whole time even after drinking a lot of water. I wasn't sure if the drinking was due to the house sometimes being hot from the heater. Could this possibly be a urninary tract infection or just a stubborn dog that doesn't want to squat to pee? She doesn't mind pooping outside but she doesn't squat as close as she does when she pees. I haven't noticed any signs of her acting like she was in pain while peeing. I need to take her into the vets for a shot but was wondering if I should tell them about her peeing to get tested for problems when I call to make an appointment. I don't want to waste money and it end up just her being stubborn. Also is it normal for a dog to need their picky glands cleaned every month? We just had hers cleaned last month for the first time and they were packed but the last 2 weeks she has been trying to scoot and leaving that smell behind again but not as bad.
