okay brutus is 10month now and he still isn't neutered but it is what I asked for for my birthday in October so we don't have much longer before it happens. Anyway 2 weeks ago while we were camping Brutus learned how to lift his leg when peeing. I don't like it. He has decided to do this on things at home. How do I stop him he was doing so well at potty training and now he goes long pees out side and squirts inside. The other day we were at soccer practice and a lady had a Jack Russel that came to say hi after brutus greeted him ,he lifted his leg on me and my daughter. Was he telling the jack were his or what? How do we stop this??? Will the neuter help??
should've had him nuetered before he started lifting.....that is why I would never have a boy dog...we dogsat for a bunch and dang, every 2 feet they'd be lifting a leg and peeing on everything.....inside and out!!
I love my males. I think that females are more tempermental and tend to have mood swings. Anyway as far as marking goes. Is he your only male? Could something have marked in the areas hes going in? or is it random spots?
Try going back to the basic with housebreaking. Keep and eye on him. Can you contain him in a certain are in the house so the accidents are easier to clean up?
My males liked to mark eachother when in the yard so i had to drive posts into the ground for them to aim at instead of eachother.
gotta nip it in the bud, keep a leash on him and correct him when he marks on something other than a non-living thing. don't let him be free in the house, keep him on a leash and if he starts to mark correct him. he is marking you and your daughter and that is really bad news. neutering may help some, do it ASAP. google "nothing in life is free" and do that program. it will teach him you guys are in charge and he may not feel the need to mark everything. on walk i don't let my pug mark every little thing, i let him sometimes but not whenever he wants. again learning you are in charge.
What was the reason for waiting for the neutering. Confine him more to a smaller area, and rehouse train him, and get him neutered. The more his hormones tell him to mark, the more the behavior will become more set(habit).
Our Vet recommeded to wait till he was a little older he is 10months now and he just hit 4lbs. My husband doesnot believe in neutering yet Brutus is my dog so he said he doesn't care but of coarse everytime we would talk about the next months budget we would come short when it came to neutering so for Octobers budget I said for my birthday I wanted $200 cash well I said this a few months ago since I know my dh and we've have it planned. The cash is for neutering although he doesn't know that. Since it is my birthday money I can do what ever I want with it.
my dh never had dogs before me so to start we comprimised no female. Since then it just happened that all our dogs have been male. We only had big dogs before (ROTTS) the only one I talked him into neutering we did when he was really yound 5mo and later he developed bone cancer some people say it has to do with the neutering I'm not sure but since then my dh will never neuter again. The Min Pin is mine and the kids he basically ignores the dog so he won't care what I do with my money.
