2. Your pet goes to the bathroom on the floor

Dogs ever now and then can have an accident in the house. But if your dog only goes to the bathroom while you aren’t home then his can be another sign. Dogs should not have to wait longer than 10 hours at most to go to the bathroom. If this is the case then no wonder they went to the bathroom!
