Customer Question

Hi. My housetrained dog (8 year old Bichon, male, neutered) has started occasionally marking up against my elderly mother's bed leg. It's not every day. We've ruled out medical causes. My mom used to take the dog for walks (up until a couple months ago), but now is unable due to health issues. Could the dog be trying to supercede my mom in the order of the household 'ranking'? We clean each mess thoroughly and never punish for incidents.
