Tried to ask this on a breed specific forum.......and was accused of wanting to give back my dog. No, i am not looking to give up my dog........Im just looking for advice.
Dog is 3yrs old, have had it 10mos and its not an every day occurance, just enough to be frustrating as heck. He only does it in one spot now, on tile, it was multiple before. He is neutered and I crate him when we are not home. He has been checked for UTI.
I got super enzyme cleaner today, and a dog urine repellant...... A breeder who owns a local pet store told me she cured her dogs by yelling at them, (not catching them in the act mind you) taking them outside and praising them, then repeating both 2 more times. She said it cured them, and one of hers is even unneutered. Not sure I could do this, but im starting to get desparate.
Have talked to an animal trainer, vet, other people........have tried belly bands, crating, tying him by leash to me......
And im not even sure its actual marking bc its more than a few drops, its a full pee.....The trainer thought i should start over with full potty training like he's a puppy - which i did, and he went 5 weeks without an incidence......till today.....i did get a bit lax with taking him by leash to the backyard.....maybe i should start all over with that.....
He's a great dog otherwise, we really love him - and i am determined to solve this issue.
so if you guys have any other ideas.......links.....stories or just a smiley face.......please respond. Its been a bad day - after getting
verbally abused on another site - i dont think i could take anything negative. I was never so grateful for mothering.com after that experience.
