    obviously take her outside before you leave....

    but you really need to crate train her.

    Ok, first of all figure out WHY she's doing this behavior and how long has this behavior been around. If she's just started doing it, then take her to the vet for a checkup to rule out the fact of a bladder infection which could make her have problems holding it.

    And even if it's not just reciently started, a good vet exam can't hurt. Also, ask your vet about it.

    You can get dog "pee" pads for your dog to use while you're out. If you dog has a weak bladder, this could solve the problem as it gives her a place to go. They also now have "litter" box training system for dogs. Your local pet store should know more about it.

    If all the above doesn't work, then there may be a behaviorial issue. Is she lonely when you're gone? Turn on a radio softly so she has some background noise and doesn't feel quite as alone. Or, a companion, even a large stuffed animal to cuddle with may help. I've had animals that act out when their human leaves. Don't forget dogs are pack animals and in the wild if their away from the pack it's usually because they were being punished. Try to ease that fear in her and maybe give her some extra attention when you get home. Say bye to her before you leave the house and let her know you'll be back also.

    There are also professional animal behavioralists you can call. Remember, that just like with a human "problem" child, there's a reason they do something. The trick is to find the reason it's being done and correct it in a more positive manner.

    Good luck.

    She may have separation anxiety. You should do some research on that one.

    More commonly, she may just not have a big enough bladder to last the entire time you're gone. How long is she alone in the house? If it's 8 hours or so, I'd recommend confining her to a smaller room like a bathroom or laundry, and putting down pads in one area for her to eliminate on. You can buy these sorts of pads at PetCo or other pet supply stores. The confinement shouldn't hurt her as long as she has a place to lie down and enough water to get through a day with you gone.

    Either confine her to a create or keep her outside in a fenced yard or area.

    If you're not there, you can't let her out or stop her, so you have to put her in a situation where she can't go on the carpet. And your choices are limited to a create or outside.

    If you have a fairly large area, like the kitchen, with tile or other hard flooring, confine her in there while you're out. Lay down "Puppy Pads" they make them for adult dogs too, but the 'puppy' ones work for adults just as well, and she should pee on those.

    Hubby has two female beagles, we confine them to the computer room when working and put down the pads for them.

    I don't know what it is about carpet, but I haven't seen a dog yet that won't pee on them at least once. If nothing else to cover the smell of a different dog that was in the house before them, but they usually won't stop at one time. I smacked ones azz three times for it and told the hubby we confine them or they're gone. He decided that confining them was best and I put down the pads to protect the flooring.

    Crate training would take care of this. It sounds like she has a little bit of separation anxiety.

    Get her a crate that is just big enough for her to stand up and turn around in. Dogs don't like to go where they lay.

    Have her stay in it for short amounts of time, increasing it each time. Praise her ALOT when she stays in it calmly even for a minute. Leave the door open so she can sniff it over without you watching over her. Give her a treat when you put her in it and leave. You might also want to leave the radio on when you go and leave her with a shirt or something that has your scent on it.

    put pants on her with a pad....they don't like to pee on theirselves...so she will stop....as far as the carpet.....once their scents on there they will keep on doing it. confine her to a crate when your gone or somewhere there's not carpet....use a wee wee pad .....from walmart...the carpet is ruined....if she has went on it several times it's too late to get it tottaly out. i breed yorkies and have been through this myself.....we now have no carpet...tile now...and this solutions has worked for me...i hope this can help you ...believe me with 8 dogs myself....this has helped me. good luck

    if you go with pants get a doggie jumper...they cant get them off...its like a onesy for a baby and they can't finaggle their way out of that. only helps with the peeing not the other....the urine is what will ruin the home and is what you need to stop.

    Put her in an area that is not on the carpet while you are gone; say the bathroom. Put her water and food in there with her and put newspaper on the floor to absorb any mistakes that she has.

    Take her outside before you leave then. What do you want, someone to watch her while you're gone?
