I allow Armani to mark trees, bushes, etc... as long as it is not someones landscaping.

He marks the fence at the dog park also a lot.

But otherwise, he is not allowed to mark on anything else... I usually just say "no" and pull him along.

I dont want him to get into too much of a habit of marking and then start doing it where he isnt supposed to... i have never had him mark inside or on someone or anything like that.

Gavroche doesn't mark - in fact I wish he would lift his leg a bit so that he doesn't always pee on his front leg! But he goes where he's told, and he usually just goes once or twice when we're out. Usually it's on grass, but he's had to go on gravel, concrete, dirt, etc before. If he goes on concrete, I make sure to rinse it away.

Before he was neutered, when he was still technically a stray at the clinic, he would lift his leg and then forget to put it down, and hop a few steps before realizing his leg was in the air He did have a leg injury, so I'm assuming it was just that he was in the process of healing, and he figures since his leg was already up he might as well keep it up a few steps lol

My dogs are not allowed to mark on anything that is handled by people or where people have to step across the river of pee (granted it's not a big river considering the size of my dogs......). They are also not allowed to pee on anyone's property, whether that be a bush, flowerbed or vehicle.

I don't have to worry about it much because I live on a farm, but I do take my dogs to many places and to countless trials over the years. Where they are expected to not mark on anything.

I have seen dogs at trials mark on someone's trial bag, back packs, chairs, other dog's x-pens, potted flowers to pretty up a show/trial etc. And it amazes me that people allow it and they should be kicked out of the trial imo. That being said some trials/shows demand that people pick up after their dogs, but there are still some that if not caught.......don't and its disgusting.

Depends on where we're walking. Dance doesn't even try to mark if we're on a leashed walk -- she used to try, but I quickly stopped her, considering how rude I find that behaviour to be (living in the city). On off-leash walks where there's nothing but grass and trees, I don't really stop her unless she's getting a little over the top.

Ripley doesn't mark yet, but if/when he does start, he'll have the same rules as Dance. Keira never marks anything.

Off leash, I don't care (unless it's in rally or something). On leash, they get 3 chances to pee. The first is usually the main pee, and the other 2 are marking. I don't actually correct the marking though, I just keep walking. If they can mark and walk at the same time, more power to 'um.

Ivan is allowed to mark on trees, bushes as long as they are not in someones yard( the trees between the sidewalk and road are fair game though), signs and occasional trash cans (namely mine). He is not allowed to mark on cars, chairs, benches, electrical poles, flower beds, buildings.

I just keep on walking. If Gunnar want's to mark he has to do it while moving, which he doesn't like. It doesn't stop it but it does cut it down. He ALWAYS has to mark when we leave the training field, but I don't care if he does that, because the whole idea of him being on the field is to exert dominance, and if marking lets him show that, so be it. If we've been playing ball or something at the park, he wants to mark this one basketball post on the way out but he has to do it while walking because I don't stop.

Where ever I tell them they can 'go potty'. If they're off-leash, they know anywhere is fine, but I don't like to have to stop every 10 seconds so that they can pee on every verticle object... especially since after the first few times nothing is even coming out!
