|I also think it might be medical. Adult dogs don't pee somewhere they have to lie down if they can help it (that's not something that's trained, it's innate), and a dog who is so distracted by a Kong that she lets you get out of earshot without crying, doesn't destroy bedding or toys, and appears calm on your return really doesn't sound like the kind of severe separation anxiety that results in peeing. If you want to be sure, though, there are some apps that allow you to watch her on your phone over webcam. I have used ivideon to watch Smokey.
If the vet doesn't find a UTI, the next thing I would ask is how she does on walks. Is she overwhelmingly reactive, nervous, or distracted? For example, tail tucked, having to be coaxed along constantly, freezing and staring, constantly hitting the end of the leash, growling at other dogs, or unable to take treats or follow commands?
