Dog pees when cat enters house
Our 7 month female puppy is generally house-trained with only a few accidents in the last 5 weeks since we adopted her. However, this week she has twice peed on the floor when the cat has entered the house (the cat is generally unfriendly to the dog and was especially so this week).

You need to try and keep your dog calm and feeling relaxed when the cat enters your his environment. Start slowly, and have one person hold the cat, while in the other room you pet and/or play with your dog. When your dog feels relaxed, have the person enter the room with the cat, but from a distance. Once your dog is acting normal with this new visitor, slowly have them start coming closer. Basically you need to teach your dog the cat is OK to be around. Good luck!

I agree with you. I have introduced many a cat to a dog. I also use treats to give the dog and the cat in each other's presence. Then they associate good things with each other. I keep the dog tied to a table leg, and hold the cat, feeding it yummy treats as we get closer to the dog. Whenever the dog is calm I throw it a treat. Of course, I am quietly telling the dog to stay or sit or some command at the same time.
Yes, I agreed with your suggestion nascadoglvr.
Cats bring joy to their owners’ lives in many ways, however once a cat begins to urinate outside of the litter box, it will place a strain on the complete social unit. It’s embarrassing to own company over and notice that your house reeks of cat excretion or to travel to bed solely to seek out that your cat peed on your pillow. AN owner generally worries that the cat might have a unhealthiness. If unhealthiness is dominated out, then frustration usually sets in.
