Default Male puppy (1 yr old )

Been many. years since we had a puppy but now our (or as wife reminds me MY Boykin) male boykin is 1 yr old and despite how much we take him out he still “marks his spots “

I have not had him neutered but honestly have no intention of breeding him, will neutering him make him quit “marking his spots”

We had a shi tzu that we had put down 3 yrs ago, he was 18 yrs old and seems like we ran into same thing with him

Wife loves him to death but is sick of washing dust ruffle on bed and other things and naturally I hear it every day

He is crate trained and for most part does his business outside , thankfully we have wood floors all through the house except in den but he never does anything in there. We do spray the areas with enzymes odor remover


Yep Admiral stepped in a spot just few minutes ago and naturally got my butt chewed out , then she laughs when he sits and looks at her and lowers his ears and wags his nub of a tail 😂

Have no clue why I do not like neutering a dog but just something about cutting nuts off a male I guess

Some dogs should not be neutered until a certain age. Rottweilers need 2 years before being cut to develope the proper bone structure and growth hormones.

Pee mats in his favorable spots. He will grow out of it.

There are a few ways to do it, but you need to start dissuading him from the behavior. Personally, I’d use an e-collar set very low at first, and work up as needed. Alternatively, you can toss a container with some pennies on the floor to startle him every time he tries to pee in the house. Or take some other action to help him understand that peeing inside is not pleasurable.

Had a wild lab-sharpei mix once,
(Real sharpei not the wrinkle ones bred for wrinkles)
getting him snipped didnt calm him at all. Might have even made him angry.
hed get out, I would have to chase him miles.
Smart, extremely smart. Smart enough to do whatever he wanted to do. He let a shock collar shock him until it went dead then he would leave the yard, or go through the screen porch screen. He once carried a full water bowl upstairs with him in his mouth without spilling a drop because he wanted it upstairs where he slept. He dug 8" diameter holes 12 in deep straight down in the backyard to get frogs..... Grass wouldcover them over and Id nearly break my legs stepping into them.

Very protective of my daughter when she was little too. Wouldnt let her uncle get near her when she was 1. Got between them and said get away from her, teeth barred.

That's a habit that might already be broken in and cutting his nuts ain't stopping it.

Whatever he peed on, the scent is still there. You need to rip out and remove every thing he peed on.

TPrice,
I have the exact same circumstances with my 2 year old Boykin that, coincidentally, came from your neck of the woods. I had two different vets tell me if he was housebroken and then started marking as he matured, the only way to break him is to neuter him. He would go through spells when he didn’t mark in the house or at the office and then would mark at both places. I had him neutered about three weeks ago. Tough decision since he has an excellent bloodline. But, decided I was not willing to give him up for a week or two to be a stud. As for the shock collar or other corrective measure, mine was very sneaky about it and was never caught in the act. I may have to give an update in a couple of months.

this is my PSA and I try not to do many if at all......for many years I was same as you. no spay/neuter for dogs. I feel if you are a responsible owner you should be able to control whether your dog has puppies. why make them go through an unnecessary procedure.
fast forward some years. we have two female dogs. neither is spayed, life is great.
then one dog gets sick, shaking, lethargic etc...apparently when females are not spayed they can get an infection in their uterus. she went through a major surgery. think hystorecomy for a woman....longer recovery time plus she was older.
vet says it can happen but not too common. the next year our other female an english bulldog got the same thing.

I am sure there are things that males go through as well. my next pup is getting fixed right on time.

Thanks. We have the shock collar but do not keep it on him all the time, and yes he is sneaky. Goes a few days without doing it and then all of a sudden he has hit his normal spots again

Tillman may not have 2 months according to the Admiral 😂, just hate to have it done and then it not make a difference

one problem is as long as there's a hint of that smell still there that will trigger them to keep doing it........there.

We had a little dog that peed on carpet when puppy....we didnt know she kept doing it in spots..... Until all the carpet was replaced with wood floors. Then we could see where she's been peeing. No more pee once carpet gone. Ever.

String an electric fence setup over his favorite spot? Ask any hunter how that works.

Just reading between the lines here - it sounds like the dog is in control of you guys, not you guys are in control of the dog. Sounds like you guys need obedience training, not the dog.

You should have had him snipped as soon as you could. Like 16 weeks. It would have prevented him from developing the habit.

My yellow does it ALL the time outside but never inside. He’s so bad that while the chocolate is pissing he will piss on him inadvertently trying to mark. I’ve been trying to stop him. Chocolate is neutered, yellow isn’t neutered.

We have two dogs in the house. Our 5 year old Yorkie that rules the roost and just barely 1 year old Weimaraner. Seriously the Yorkie rules. Kids just had the Weimaraner neutered. He had just started hiking his leg and had done it a couple times in the house. Big big Nono for me. He was crated and have not seen any evidence of this again.
we had a very large crate and wife couldn’t bare to put him in it so she fixed him a spot in the laundry room. He does very good in there. No barking or pawing at the door I was amazed even when we or the kids come in late at night. Not a peep.
so he’s 2 weeks out from being cut and I haven’t even seen him marking outside. Our Yorkie was a year old when he was cut and he was a pain to get trained but he has never marked in the house. I was worried about it with the other dog coming into the house. No major issues yet other than the Yorkie pushing the Weimaraner around.

Our shihtzu rules the roost pushes her 65 lb big sister around. Little dogs have attitude. Little dog decides when to go outside, how long to stay, where they get walked. Tells us when to put big dog out....when to let her in.
