Ugh, I hate it so much lol. It's disgusting. He used to obsessively follow both of my girls around to do that to them, or wherever they sat, and that's basically all he thought about in the yard too. Almost as bad as marking since he totally was lost in his own little world.


Anyway, sorry about all of my unhelpful posts Meagan.
Easily distracted today apparently!

Hawkeye marks outside constantly unless he's working. But inside ANY buildings he knows is of limits to pee, and he generalizes fully even to new buildings and even in new building where other dogs have peed. It wasn't always like that however, when he was 1.5 years old he lifted his leg on a chair at a friend's house(this friend has two poorly potty trained dogs that sometimes pee in her house). He and I had a "come to Jesus" meeting about that and it's now been three whole years without an incident. However go outside and give him a tree, or a bush, blade of grass, car, building, pole, house, ect, and he'll make sure to lift his leg on it even after nothing is coming out.

You are all fine guys! I've heard that with male puppies that us dog crazy folks raise, it is not nearly as much of an issue.. but with him being a rescue, I don't know how long he has done it.

I will try your advice Sael. I don't think he needs an e-collar or anything, as he is quite soft. Honestly, he would probably stop if I told him I was disappointed.

The main thing I don't understand is why he was marking when we were doing Nosework outside. HE KNOWS HE IS WORKING. Not marking time. Any specific tips for this? We've had some drive issues with him (perfectionist, gets frustrated if he can't find it RIGHT NAO), so I don't really want to "correct" him for marking while he is searching, but I also don't want him being a jerk about it either.. :shrugs: But, in the house and in stores, I will definitely make a point to be consistent and not let it happen.

When he's working you can use marking as a reward. I did a bit of that with Logan, too, and it worked really well.

That's actually a really good idea! Would you still let them go before you search? How would you approach it if they slipped up while searching?

It's a lot like the "go sniff" if you walk on a loose lead for so long, I would imagine.

Let him pee before you start, but don't let him mark like crazy before hand. Just one chance to pee. Start small and reward him with peeing after short periods and build it up. Set him up to succeed!

This makes me think he's doing it because he's nervous or stressed.

Back up a bit in your training, up your rewards, make things a bit easier for a while, see if that makes a difference.
