    Neutered 8 month old marking his territory often

    Well, I called the vet today, because we noticed he tinkles a bit, and it has nothing to do with him not being housebroken, and has nothing to do with him peeing out submission. The vet thinks he has a bladder infection. We're bringing him in tomorrow morning. As for us being horrible people...

    Neutered 8 month old marking his territory often

    Thanks for the replies guys. My gf and I got him together, but we did get a new roommate a few months ago. However, he totally listens to her, she's taken care of him (walks, fed him, play etc) while we were out many times. And he doesn't mark her room or her belongings. Just the living room...

    Neutered 8 month old marking his territory often

    Hi there, Our 8 month old daschund is 100% housebroken, knows the basic commands, etc. However, lately he's been marking his territory in the house a lot. We take him out to do his business very often, about every hour. He can hold it in no problem overnight, or when we're at work. My...

    Looking for a bit of advice..

    McGregor is doing better at walks. He will bark at other dogs most of the time, sometimes he settles down. My main concern is that he yelps really loud at random moments. Nothing hurts, I've felt around many many times and he has no injury to speak of. However, he could be belly up on my lap and...

    Oh yes, we've had him go in the backyard to start, and we'd make him walk around the yard near the door and up near the stairs. But he'll whine during a walk often.

    What to Expect When Raising a Puppy

    How long do you punish a puppy if he/she is continually doing something bad? I know he's super young (8weeks, daschund M) and will mess around. I just don't want to encourage bad habits. . .

    Sometimes he'll start crying quite early on. He'll start 2 seconds after i put him down outside. Cries after 30 seconds on a walk, and i either drag him (practically) during the walk, and keep pulling him back when we're heading home. Not sure what is best to do. Puppy classes will start in a...

    Looking for a bit of advice..

    Hey guys, I've noticed McGregor whines when he's outside, and a few times when getting walked. A couple of times i was practically dragging him on the walk. Anybody know what's up with the crying outside? We waited outside with him for for almost half an hour before he went #2. Any...

    Looking for a bit of advice..

    So we've been working with taking him outside to go potty. It's been working well. 1 or 2 accidents, and he ran to the newspaper (we have it for emergencies) to pee. We've been rewarding him when he goes potty outside. Is that okay? He has been sitting really well, starting to stay a bit. I read...

    Looking for a bit of advice..

    The problem is there's dogs in the two apartments above us. Their business drips down into our yard...So I'm worried he'll get sick that way. The park behind our place is used by a lot of people walking their dogs and I know there'd be lots of their business around.. I'm not sure what to do, let...

    Thanks a lot for your advice guys...I'm pretty sure he needs one more shot before being exposed to other animals...Is it still okay for me to bring him outside to potty?

    Looking for a bit of advice..

    Hi there, I got a Daschund puppy a few days ago, he's almost 8 weeks. I was wondering if it's okay to let him pee in his crate overnight, there's a sliding sheet of plastic under the crate with newspaper on it so he's not laying in it or anything. He hasn't pooped in it yet. We've been...
