The focus of this discussion is house soiling in dogs including history taking, work-up, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, and management strategies. Discussion includes submissive urination, crating as a training tool, and a case example of a dog that started urinating in the home when left alone, upon an owner's return, when seeming to be fearful, and who exhibited excessive drinking at times of excessive behavioral arousal.

This presentation serves as Part I of a two-part series on this topic. Part II is: When Housebroken Seems Broken ... available for viewing On Demand.
