Customer Question

Briuser is an 8 year old jack russel, pug mix. He shares the house with another older, fixed female dog. For the last two years, he has taken to urinating on the furniture and floor when the owner is out or not looking. This is true even though he has a doggie door and is promptly let out out when he requests. He has been checked by vets and their is nothing physically wrong with Bruiser and he gets plenty of love and attention. Any suggestions?

Sally Grott :

It does sound like marking behavior. Is the dog neutered?

Sally Grott :

Is it a full stream of urine or just a bit here and there?

Sally Grott :

Has anything in the home changed?

Sally Grott :

Are you able to see him do this or is it only done when no one is in the home?
