I'm so sick of this, i can never catch him in the act, but everywhere i look there is dog pee, on teh carpets, on the sides of all our brand new furniture, couches, chairs, i'm just soo angry.

I love my little lhasa poo, but he's freakin nuts. everytime he hears a dog bark outside, he will run to the nearest couch or chair and pee. We had him neutured, just recently hoping this would help, but it doesnt, he's still agressive and still does just as much pee damage'. He's 5 years old, and i just wish i'd had him fixed earlier.

What can i do about this/him now?
I have to train him to pee outside, but i dont know how.

thanks,

meems

The problem might be that you didn't have him fixed when he was 6 months old like he should have been. Where did you get him? Did you get him from a breeder or from a rescue? If you got him from a rescue it could be that he is having flashbacks & he isn't realizing what he's doing. Have you taken him to the vet to see if it might be some kind of disorder? If not take him to the vet & have your vet check him out. Your vet will be more sure about what is wrong with him than anyone else will be. So I hope he does better.Good luck!

What your dog is doing is quite natural to him, it is not an illness, or a psychological problem, it is in the genes I'm afraid. If you don't want a male to mark territory you have to get them fixed before they reach maturity, around 6 months of age. Once they have learned to lift the leg, that's normally it I'm afraid.
He hears another dog, he feels his territory is threatened, he will mark, it is just a little warning to other dogs.
To fix it, don't let him in anywhere you don't want marked by pee, or can't easily clean it up if he does.
You will have to do basic housetraining, if you can't catch him at it, you may be forced to keep him as an outside dog, or crate train.

I am having the same problem with my dog. It makes me sick to my stomach to smell pee all the time. He has marked my furniture, carpet and walls. I cant help but get angry even though I know that he cant help it. I fuss at him then pet him. I know that it is confusing for him. Are there any solutions? I really need them. I would keep him outside, but i have two other dogs that live inside. Also he jumps the fence and terrorizes the neighborhood. If anyone knows of any solutions let me know. Thank you!!!!!

Snowball, can you confine your dog to one area of the house, Laundry for example?
Your circumstances could be a little different.
What sexes are your other dogs?
Are they sterilized?
How old is the dog with the problem?
Is he sterilized?
Unless you actually catch him in the act, or straight after, you are wasting your time punishing in any way or form, he will not understand why!
If you do catch him, grab him by the collar, straight outside, have a lead handy, tie him up for a very short time, supervised, but not so he can see you, scold him on the way with your voice only.
If he pees outside give him heaps of praise.

Actually Snowball is too big to confine to a small space. My other dogs are male and female. The male is from the same litter as Snowball and the female is their mother. They are both sterilized. I never got around to sterilizing Snowball. He is now 5 years old. I have only caught him the act once. Whenever he sees me smelling furniture or any object that i think that he may have sprayed, he panics and starts to run the other way. Is he displaying understanding of my disappointment in him for peeing on everything? I want to know what to do because i am about to buy new furniture and I am tired of the pee smell. Help me please!!!!!!!!!

You could try castration first off. It may help a little. Other than that, retraining, but I doubt at his age you will really be able to stop it. Hold off on the new furniture, if you do decide to retrain it will take time and patience.
To retrain you will really need to be there to catch him, put him outside for 1/2 hour say, then let him in and watch, that is the most likely time he will remark.

I forgot, no he doesn't know your displeasure, more likely he thinks you are trying to mark his spot, especially if you are the alpha, he would most likely come back and mark where he smells you have been.
