I know that one of the symptoms is that the dog is often unable to control when and where it urinates. Sometimes they'll leave a lot of little puddles around the house. Also if it's severe I think that there can sometimes be blood in the urine. * ALONG WITH THE FREQUENT URINATING AND PRESENTS OF BLOOD THERE CAN ALSO BE SOME SWELLING IN THE LOWER ABDOMEN RIGHT AROUND WHERE THE BLADDER IS LOCATED AND AN UNUSUALLY STRONG SMELL OF AMMONIA AT TIME OF URINATION.. PLEASE GET YOUR PET TO THE VET ASAP, BLADDER INFECTIONS WHEN LEFT UNTREATED CAN LEAD TO POTENTIONALLY SERIOUS AND SOMETIMES FATAL SECONDARY INFECTIONS... Kechara

Any dog can get a bladder infection, although it is more common in female dogs.

If it's a male dog, it could indicate a prostate infection. This could also be a sign of a bladder infection - male or female. If this doesn't clear up in a day or so, you really need to take it to the vet.

Your veterinarian will place the dog on antibiotics for about 10 days

Female dogs do not spray. If your female dog is marking like a male dog, it may have a urinary tract or bladder infection. A spraying female dog should be examined by a veterinarian.

They can have a bladder infection, but if your dog ever urinates blood go to the vet immediantly
