I have 2 senior chihuahua mixes and one 2 year old mastador. All males. Im having a problem with them marking certain areas in my house. All the dogs are house trained and wait at the door whenever needing to pee. BUT...
Whenever I take my mastador to my girlfriends, as soon as he gets in the door if im not careful he will mark either a chair or the foot of a bed. Then the alpha chihuahua will pee there as well. Im guessing this is a dominance thing or territorial? I just want some help if anyone knows how to fix this! Thank you.

It's defiantly territorial, and at this point may also be habitual. Dousing the spot in Nature's miracle will often help and cleaning with wet vac if fabric. If it's a rug I would recommend either removing it or putting a throw rug on top to help diffuse the scent and break the cycle of marking. If you can find a spot outside that they can be territorial about. You will need to watch him carefully for a while.
