Hi everyone just looking for some advise.
Here at the vets a very common problem we are seeing a lot of are male teenage dogs peeing on their owners furniture. (Shih Tzu’s are the main offenders) Anyway advising castration is the obviously answer (being a vets) but this is given with training advise. Just wanting to know what your training advise would be to a person with this kind of problem. 🙂February 5, 2011 at 6:10 pm #78911
depends on the dog, age, other dogs in the house tbh, there is no sweeping generic answer.
Just to lcean the spots with biological powder/white wine vinegar to get rid of the enzymes.February 6, 2011 at 3:36 pm #78912
Just been going through this problem with Stanley,cleaning after him with the white vinegar has seemed to workFebruary 14, 2011 at 9:09 pm #78913
A lot of this stuff depends on owners reaction to it, how long it has been going on, whether it is learned behaviour – would all be dependant on dog in question. if it is learned behaviour no matter what you cut off the behaviour isnt going to change.November 11, 2011 at 12:43 pm #78914
I heard ‘pee-pads’ are useful for this. They have a dog scent on them which you leave in the house so that your dog pees on them, then eventually you take them outside so your dog follows them to pee.November 11, 2011 at 3:09 pm #78915
Pee pads whoever invented them needs shooting,Why would you train a dog twice.
Unless a bitch is bang on dates in her season I would not expect a male to pee in the house.
To my mind it’s down to bad training to start with not being diligent and poor cleaning methodsNovember 11, 2011 at 3:25 pm #78916
this is not a house training issue…it a marking issue…totally different…there are posts on here somewhere about this…
dog needs to be re conditioned…the chosen spots for marking needs totally neutralising…
pee pads ? am with val…money making daft idea scam….
i have an entire male and an entire female…plus 2 other castrate boys…one a late castrate so he knows girlie channel number 5….cubert boyo knows that marking in house when ami nice and scenty is :nono: :nono: :nono:
when we had livs last week and she went pre season…he did mmm it not ami so…he didnt do it twice…and no i used no punisher or aversive…just reminded him that house is not a toilet no matter what his hormones are saying
it a training issue…and i would not use pee pads or paper or or
if you go onto cuberts puppy thread…you will see how fast i had toilet training done and finished…without pads paper…as for boy stuff…well…we put it away…we cross our legs…we get rid in the garden…

The last few days,I have been having problems with Trav,he has started marking in my living room,been cleaning up thoroughly with bio washing powder and white vinegar,he doesn’t mark the furniture in front of us or through the day while we are out shopping etc,it only happens through the night,he was castrated a few years ago when he was 5,Stanly isn’t castrated and is 19 months old.We had a marking problem with Stan a few weeks ago,but after cleaning up with the washing powder and vinegar it was nipped in the bud in a couple of days,any advice would be greatNovember 11, 2011 at 6:59 pm #78918
