I tried searching but my search kept timing out.
Just recently my 9 month old Jackson has started to lift his leg and pee little bits to mark his spot. Ususally he doesn't even lift his leg to pee but he has seen other dogs lifting and marking which he has started to do. I figured it wasn't a big deal if he was doing that outside but its been a few times now he has lifted his leg inside a friends house and peed a little on plants and once on a table leg.
Both times that I have seen it i have yelled during the action and grabbed him and taken him outside and told him to pee. I also started trying to stop/correct him when he is "marking" even outside as I don't want him to think its okay/normal and do it inside.
Is this somthing that all dogs try to do or somthing I should try to correct a differnt way? He also isn't nuetered yet as our breeder said to wait till 18 months and my girlfriend thinks that neuturing him will fix everything.
Ya, I find the search funtion does not work. A google search works, try the topic you are looking for, followed by shorthairs.net, eg "marking shorthairs.net". Here are some older posts:
