Poor Finn... being a Pancake Man is hard!

(on a side note - Ronin never marked in the house... I wonder why some dogs mark indoors and some don't...)

Ha ha! Finn, you should have kept your manly thoughts to yourself and you could have kept your manly bits.

Ben was a chronic marker. He would pee on ANYTHING! Indoors or out. Now that he is neutered and with some consistent reinforcement, he only marks outdoors.

Day two and no marking! He also has NOT humped his favorite humpee toy, despite given the chance. He;s getting a few hours of light play today but mostly crate rest. He's extremely hyper and I'm scared of him opening his incisions despite himself. Silly boy.

LOL! I doubt he would want to hump anything with the incisions. It takes a good 4-6 months for the hormones to clear the system completely, not to rain on your parade or anything!

This interests me.
The very word, "marking". He wants to mark this house as his own. I'm pretty sure that's the mentality.

In the past month, since learning he can lift his leg and mark, Finn marks everywhere. He lifts his leg on all the furniture and trickles. I caught him whenever I could, using the "leave it" command. But it was getting absolutely ridiculous.

Mind you, it's not the REASON I neutered. Its part of the reason why I chose to neuter earlier then I had originally planned. The marking may still continue, I'm not expecting the neuter to "fix" it.. it should, though. If it doesn't, I'll just be more rigorous with the training.

He doesn't have house accidents anymore, just this ridiculous marking business. He did have a good pee in the kitchen yesterday, but I'm forgiving him that because he was coming off the anethesia and was pretty disoriented all day. :P

When I moved here Bubba started marking . I was gone a lot as Tom was in the hosipital and the vet sadi that he was leaving his scent so I could find him . Didn't last long .

We didn't have marking problems until we had two intact adult males in the same house. Once Nard hit maturity, we started having some real pissing contests. *sigh* We're working on it.

Elegy, I wonder if it's Mushroom's way of making Steve hold still for 10 seconds?

Poor Pancaked Finn...hope he feels better soon!

The idea of indoor marking scares me.

Tucker is almost 5 months old and hasn't lifted his leg yet. We weren't planning on neutering him, but hearing things like this always makes me worried.
