Hi, All! No, I did NOT fall of the planet (just orbited for a while.) 'Hope you all are well. We also had an issue with peeing in the house with a neutered dog. We came to find out that it happened to be by all the indoor plants we had where the pot was sitting inside a tray to catch the water. Something about the smell and moisture of the area signaled "please pee here." Solution? Now all our indoor plants are in plastic pots, and set on trays INSIDE the decorative pots. For some reason, that barrier has eliminated the problem.
Since my new shelter dog isn't house trained, I'm in somewhat the same boat. I've heard that using a black light will show pee spots (fluoresce) in carpet etc. that aren't visible to the human eye (but visible to the canine nose). I'm hoping that will aid spot cleaning using the enzymatic remover.
I made an appointment for Bob to be nuetered and have a teeth cleaning on May 26th. I am taking that week off for my daughters wedding. Do you think I will regret doing that week since I have so much going on. I will be there most of the time to watch him but I worry because we will have so much company. Maybe I should change it to a more quiet week.

Inappropriate peeing, or peeing inside is a symptom of bladder or urinary tract infections. Also, it is probably best that you get your pup neutered since he is wanting to have sexual inclinations. It's only natural but it isn't desirable.
There is a low cost spay and neuter vet or organization in nearly every city. Just google low cost neuter in __________ whatever city and state you are in. Or call your local human society/shelter and they will be able to tell you where you can obtain and certificate.
It is easy to have your pup tested for an infection.
Hope this helps. and yes, the other pup is thinking, "HEY! I didn't know we could pee in the house!!!!" LOL

We had Raider neutered when he was 6 months old and I've heard that un-fixed pups will actually "mark" indoors, which is why we had him fixed. Is there any reason you don't want him neutered? Let us know what...if anything, you find out from your vet...what's going on with him.

My little dog Bob who is almost 2 has started peeing in the house and showing sexual behavior. He has never been nuetered and has never acted like this before. He only has one tiny testical. Now all of a sudden he started this and I am thinking he is a late bloomer. Then my other dog Ripley, who is three and is nuetered and never pees in the house has started. I am thinking that he is smelling Bobs tinkels so he thinks its ok. what would you guys recommend? Peeing in the house is not acceptable. Should I get Bob nutered? Do you think that would help? any other suggestions? They have a doggie door so they can go out whenever they want. They have been very good up to now. Why?????
