  2. Do any of your competing dogs struggle with marking?

    Dog Sports/Show Forum
    My boy Dexter is CGC certified and I've tossed around competing in the local Rally competition and with the local barn hunt association because I'd think he'd have fun doing both! My friend runs her springer and boston terrier in barn hunts and I signed up for the free beginner trial a couple...
  3. Green Line on Spay Incision . . . curious

    General Dog Forum
    I recently had two girls spayed at a spay-neuter clinic. The vet marked the incision site with some sort of green dye and they now have a 1.5 inch green line on their bellies. I've never seen this before . . . but then I was abroad for 15 years. Is this now a regular practice? I can see the...
  4. 2 year old boy started marking around the house?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, I have a two year old male Papillon, who has always behaved, to a limit, very well. He caught on much faster than his sister at knowing to pee outside on grass. As a puppy, he rarely had any accidents which he was promptly sent outside to a proper pee spot, and all was well. Recently, in...
  5. not neutered and in door marking problems. Help?

    My parents have a 4 year old beagle that is not neutered. He is house trained for the most part, but he marks everywhere.

    Hi all, I have a 1.5 year old male Bichon Frise (Toby) along with a 10 year old female cockapoo (Tootsie) and a 15 year old female Pomeranian (Priss). My wife and I need to get Toby trained as he is picking up too many bad habits from Tootsie. She is "somewhat" trained as she has "selective...

  8. Leadership with positive reinforcement?

    Dog Training Forum
    My little dog is 6 years old now and I think he needs some leadership from me. I don't like to call it dominance, but I guess that's kind of what he needs. The issues we have been having I just thought were small dog/terrier problems but now I think I need to be more of a "pack leader"... He...
  9. Marking?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    So Bacon is a 13 week old male French Bulldog and I'd have to say the house training has gone pretty well. He seems to get that he's supposed to pee outside. I try and take him out every hour and if he feels like he has to eliminate before that he sits next to the baby gate and stares at it...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello everyone, I have a Lhasa Apso (I think), I found hin on the street in May 2008. The vet told me he maybe was 5 or 6 yrs old and I never got him neutered.

  11. Marking! (boys will be boys)

    General Dog Forum
    Male dogs like to mark. I know this and am well aware of what can trigger marking behavior. However, this new foster is stumping me on what to do. We believe he is a Rottweiler X (probably something smaller) and about 5 years old. He is neutered (was altered later in life, probably about 3...

  13. Is it possible for a 10 week old puppy to mark?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    So Henry's GREAT. No, really, he is. He's a 10 week old Brittany who is getting house-training down (went to the door of his own accord today! Good lad!), is getting better with being so bitey (except after a play-date with his Aussie friend :/ ), and only gets up once at night. However there...

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two dogs at home. A male JRT and a small female "mutt". My JRT is the more dominant dog of the two. He's very lovable and very intelligent! For a little while now, we've been having some troubles with our JRT. He is consistantly marking just about everything in our kitchen; the chairs...

  16. how to stop obsessive marking (outside)

    Dog Training Forum
    I adopted a dog about 4 months ago. I would really like to be able to have him off leash so he could come camping with us this summer. However, I feel that we need to break a habit of his first. When he is outside, he wants nothing but to mark. He marks until he is out of urine, but still...
