Most dogs usually urinate every four to six hours. Senior dogs and puppies tend to go a bit more frequently. If you’ve noticed that your dog is urinating frequently, particularly on walks, there are some potential reasons for that. Some of these are serious medical issues. They include:

  • Marking
  • Aging
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Season weather changes
  • Spay incontinence
  • Diabetes

If a dog is peeing because of marking, that’s nothing to really worry about. To tell if it’s just marking urination, pay attention to how much is coming out. If it’s just a few droplets, it’s more than likely just marking. If it’s a steady stream, it might be good to bring them in for a checkup. Some of these potential issues require medical attention.
