• Our puppy is 12 weeks old and is urinating while she sleeps, we are unsure if it was because isn’t house broken yet or not. She seems to be dreaming before she does it. Is there a way to stop it or could they’re be an underlying cause?

    Hi Taylor,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. There can be a few different causes for this. Going while asleep is not normal and likely is not related to house breaking her. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of this after they have gotten some more information from you and examined her. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause of her symptoms.
