    hi, just joined and after some advice. I am considering rehomimg an 18 moth old Frenchie who is doubly incontinent due to a problem in his brain. This will never be resolved so will be this way for life.
    I do not work so the time isn’t really an issue I’m just trying to get some advice on how manageable this would be on a day to day basis with nappies etc.
    Many thanks xxxx

    not a vet expert but how would you go about diagnosing a brain problem in a dog?

    This is what to vets told the rescue centre? That the messages aren’t getting to his brain. He did a poo and wee while I was there and definitely had no idea it was happening. Maybe a second opinion might help?

    Hey I have a 2 year Frenchie that I re homed off a breeder!
    She after a 2 days I realised that she had not been taught as a pup toilet training. We have taught her to wee on command and watch her all the time. If I go out for 5 mins or go upstairs I crate her. I crate her at night too and she’s fine.

    Always good to get a second opinion, he is still so young..if the incontinence is long term then it's going to be down to your dedication and commitment to him to make sure he is not going to get sore, or infections, especially with the corkscrew tail, and also recognizing that this is going to be a way of life for you both,( and of course you not worrying about accidents in the home.) With regular garden trips, 2hourly was a time frame I used with my old yorkie, as well as your normal walk times, you can sometimes retrain even a damaged brain to a certain extent, obviously depending, but you have to be consistent. Not mad on the idea of nappies, as they get warm when soiled and therefore breeding grounds for bacteria, but there may be a time and a place for them, inco sheets under vetbed for bedding, maybe, as the top stays relatively dry. This is just from my experience, I am not an expert, but if you are up for it(and it will be hard work!) you could make it work and give this dog the best life you can;)...
