  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Cedric is a 15 month hound mix. He’s great—energetic and a chewer, but highly trainable. We had a few instances of markings when we first brought him home from the pound at 4 mos, but he has always been great about peeing outside. Our 10 year old human boy is not always great. He loves playing...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    As the title says we have a constant problem with our boy dog peeing on things in the house. Here’s what we have tried - Cleaning up his markings right away. - Using cleaner with urine destroying enzymes marketed to “stop spraying.” - Throwing away a rug that he marked often. -...
  3. General Dog Discussion
    Good afternoon! My mother was thinking about rescuing a black lab from a local shelter. The black lab is 2.5 years old and honestly is very calm for a black lab. He is everything she wants in a dog, so I told her it couldn't hurt. Problem is, my mom lives in an apartment. Does anyone have...

    Hi - first time poster but getting desperate for advice. Basically about three weeks ago we rescued an 18 month old male schnauzer Oscar from people who could no longer care for him, we already had a female schnauzer of 18 months old who needed the companionship so Oscar is the second dog in...
  5. Housetraining
    We've had our Jack/Rat mix for almost 4 years, got him at 9 weeks old. He was a superstar for housetraining, never an accident, peed on command for a long time, and we stopped crating him at a year and a half. (Sorry this is so looooonnng.....) Our older girl's health started to falter last...
  6. Housetraining
    I would GREATLY appreciate any help from anyone who can offer it. We rescued a female Lab several years ago. Its a long story but, we saved two dogs life and one we brought into our family. She is a Lab/mix we don't know what with... She is a very sweet dog protective of the house and us...
  7. Housetraining
    I just adopted a 4 year old pure-breed dachshund from the Humane Society about a month ago. He is the most loving thing in the world and is the epitome of a lap dog- however i'm having a couple of issues with our training. First, the marking. I have a female rescue dachshund already in the house...
  8. Housetraining
    Please help me... My wife is at her last nerve and I can't listen to it anymore, nor do I know what's going on or how to fix it. I have a 10 year old male eskipoo that has been peeing all over the house for years. Here's the scoop: He was housebroken at one point, when it was just myself and...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 5 yo male neutered yorkie schnauzer mix that will not stop marking. In fact he's actually increased this behavior over the last month or so. Background: I got him about 2.5 years ago. I had two other yorkies already, and he came from a pretty questionable home (I suspect abuse)...
  10. Housetraining
    A little backstory. We have two dogs. Both adopted, fixed, and were previously housetrained. We adopted them a month apart from each other but adopted the first one 3 months ago. Dog 1: 11 month old male Dachshund Mix. Submissive. Dog 2: 3 Year old female Dachshund. Displays alpha behavior...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    So this morning I went to my vet to get Baxter vaccinated. I mentioned that no matter what I try (tethering, umbilical training, etc) he STILL is marking, it's driving me crazy and im at a loss of what to do next. He gave me pills called OVARID active ingredient 20mg magestrol acetate. Has...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey everyone, I'm new to dogforum.com and was hoping I could get some help with our family dog, Sammy. A little bit about him: he's a purebread Bedlington Terrier, about 2 1/2 years old, and about 6-7 months ago got neutered. When my parents got him, he was the last puppy in the litter and was...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, I own two English Cocker Spaniels they are both one year old. One of them unfortunately has been diagnosed with Juvenile Renal Disease, currently only one of his kidneys is working and the other is failing. With that being said, my dog is in great health 'in himself' – he’s a typical...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! I recently got a male Boykin Spaniel, he's about 3 months now. I don't really know what to do about the whole house training situation and honestly I'm a little confused about why he's been acting this way. I'm currently in college and live in an apartment by myself. My boyfriend is...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I have a 2 year old male Bichon Frise (Toby) and a 10 year old female cockapoo (Tootsie). My problem is that Toby has not been neutered and has to show Tootsie that he is in charge so he marks constantly in the house if my wife and I take our eyes off him He also is hyper most of the...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    I was walking my 2 year old rescue Border collie down a forest path. It's quite secluded so I let him of leash so he could have a good sniff at the surroundings. Oh he got a very good sniff indeed... I saw him sniff some long grass and thought nothing off it until he plopped his head on the...
  17. Puppy Help
    No question really, just find it fascinating that suddenly (he's 5 months, 1 week old) Cobber has started lifting his little back leg (so friggin cute!) and marking at every tree/lamppost/bush where all the other neighborhood dogs stop. What's really funny is he doesn't have the balance figured...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    Because I want to foster rescues in my house some day, I'm curious how you all deal with correcting this behavior. I grew up with parents who never allowed male dogs because they marked and they were convinced they couldn't be trained not to. So for the most part, I've only had female dogs. My...
  19. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I have a 1 year old male Bichon Frise along with a 10 year old female cockapoo, and a 15 year old female Pomeranian. I am having a problem trying to stop my Bichon from marking all over the house. I have tried keeping him on his leash but it is impossible, as I work out of my house, to...
  20. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello I just adopted a 3-year-old un-neutered male Paperanian (pomeranian papillion cross) named Pika. The first night (saturday the 26th) we got him home he peed on the floor. I thought maybe it was just the new surroundings so I overlooked it. The next day he was outside most of the day so...
