i need to buy a belly band for my dog (not temperance. she's a house broken girl).
but for max, my male, 18 pound cairn terrier who has decided to relapse and pee in the house.
i had 2 belly bands which worked well, but i can't find them! i know they are here somewhere.
i know it isn't the perfect answer, but it helps keep my floors from being all ruined.
now to find his crate :(

he is neutered. he is 5 years old and i've had him since he was 2 (he's a rescue).
i am not sure what has happened besides it being cold and he doesn't like going out. one is my son has been staying here while i've been out of town and his dog is here, but she and he are really good buddies and play a lot.

he's not 100% housebroken and never has been, but recently it's been a lot of accidents. like 2 a day. instead of 2-4 a month.

good idea locket. it's a lot of pee when he does it. not piddles, so i was attributing it to something more psychological or just too cold on his weinie.

he slept in a crate last night and no accidents. so i'm thinking it's something else.

i'm wondering if he is upset over my son's dog being here. usually i have my niece stay and there isn't the same problems.

i fussed at him last night and raised my voice and all the dogs fled my presence (the big girls got in their box). i felt so bad that i started crying.

There is no more forgiving creature than a dog, nor any better teacher, IMO. They seem to know people at times become unhinged (been there, done that!) and holler and rant for little or no reason at all. They always give us a "pass" on so doing it seems. They teach us that what comes out of our mouths is irretrievable, still, what a dog forgives most people would not.

I so feel your regret here faerie! I own up to on a few occasions shrieking at Chagall and even handling him too roughly out of my own impatience; yet he somehow continues to always look at me with those adoring and trusting eyes, and never even insinuates that he "wouldn't do that to me" if I were the poodle and he the person. But I know he wouldn't; it remains that my poodle is a better "person" than I am, and I think that's true for most of us and our dogs, regardless of breed. They know when we regret our lapses of kindness or patience and I half believe one of their great purposes on earth is to teach us better control of both. Now go hug him, and know for sure in his heart he never stopped hugging and loving you, not for a minute, and he never will. Great big cyber hug to you both!!

I got a Tinkle Belt. I love it, it's really soft and comfortable and fit Des like a glove! He didn't mind it being on at all. The seller/maker of Tinkle Belts is really awesome, too.
I would definitely get his urine tested ASAP, though. A sudden relapse of that amount can be a sign of something serious. That or it's just cold and he's being a big baby. :D Has he acted like that in previous winters? Does your son's pup pee in the house? If she does, he might have gotten the idea from her.
