Help for house training!

Recently my 4 1/2 year old Coton has started peeing in the house and I can't figure out why. Any suggestions would be helpful because this is a deal breaker for my wife.

You didn't mention if your dog was male or female. Sometimes males will mark their territory. If your dog is male, you can try a belly band. You can also restrict their access to the house with baby gates or a crate. Have you taken your dog to the vet to rule out a medical or behavioral issue? If behavior then consult with a good behaviorist to help figure it out. Don't give up!

Our Cotton is five years old and he was so easy to house break.
No accidents at all until just a couple of months ago. I couldn't catch him in the act. I'd just find a little puddle later. I fussed a lot while I was cleaning it up and he would look so guilty. This happened about three times. I couldn't understand why he was doing it!!! So we started giving him more attention and taking him out more frequently.....and when he would pee, we would tell him he was a good boy and pet him. I do believe he was doing it for attention. It's been over a month now and no accidents! Good Luck!
