Hello, I can really use some help ! our 14 months old male rottweiler is peeing indoors ! this has been hapening for 2 days now... oh not all the time though. Yesterday it was a big big pee all over the corridor and the bed rooms and today a smaller pipi in the dinning room. What do you think ? is it because he wants to mate ? in this case what would the symptoms be ? or might he be jealous of the 4 orphan kittens that we are keeping in the guest bedroom ???? help ! this is really annoying....
No matter the problem rottis need a dominating owner. I would start the house breaking all over again. I would even crate your dog when you can not watch it. This sound like your dog is probably jealous. Maybe nueturing(sp?) would help.
If he's not neutered, it might be marking behavior. If it is, it will get worse if you don't neuter him. He might starting to markhis territory to let the new kittens know that hte place is his. Neuter him, and restrict his house movements to a crate or to your side just as you would if you were housetraining him.
this does not sound too good :-( he is not neutered so it can be a little bit of both reasons I guess. Funny we are giving him much more attention these days to prevent any bad feelings :-( :-( shoudl we try to mate him ???
I think you should probably get him neutered. Breeding dogs is a lot of responsibility. Your dog is too young to be bred at 14 months, and too young to have had appropriate health testing done on him to determine whether or not he would even make a good stud dog. Not only that, breeding him wont stop the marking behavior at all. If you don't neuter him, he is likely to do it the rest of his life.
I would suggest ruling out physiological causes first. It could be behavioural, but it could be due to kidney, bladder or urethral infection. I'd be tempted to check his temp and run a urine profile if this is a sudden thing, since if an infection is high in the kidney this may be the initial warning sign. In any case, I'd run it by your vet.
I agree with onehappygirl. Make an appointment with the dr, and take a urine sample with you. Could be urinary tract infection among some of the others mentioned. It's always best to check things out before turning to behavioral or territorial since he had been housebroken.
don't breed him. it won't do anything. giving him more attention may be telling him you are the submissive ones, too. dogs can have too much attention, and they will interpret the attentive people as being submissive to him.
