What can we do about a dog marking his territory all over the house?

Any tips on how to deal with a dog peeing/marking his territory throughout the house?? He’s used to being the baby of the house; he was my boyfriend’s dog… my two girls & I moved in, and we got a rott puppy who is now ten months. My boyfriend’s dog is three years old and completely potty trained but has started peeing and marking his territory everywhere. We’re due with a new baby in two months, and I REALLY don’t want to deal with him peeing on the baby’s stuff. We make sure to give him as much attention as possible… he pees a little every time we leave

Spay or neuter your dog as soon as possible. The longer a dog goes before neutering, the more difficult it will be to train them not to mark in the house. Spaying or neutering your dog should reduce urine-marking and may stop it altogether.

Def fix him if he isnt already, that could help. He seems upset. So just do ur best. I will suggest nature’s miracle pet cleaner! It is amazing!! And i think a new baby could upset him even more, just alot of changes. Not much advice but good luck!!

If the new puppy is a male he’s showing his dominance over the puppy I’m currently dealing with my 14 year old male dog doing this over our 1 year old pup. 🤦

Spray lemon spray were he pee it work.

He is jelled Have you tried rubbing his nose in it. That is how I stopped one of a friends dogs.

If he isn’t fixed then do that ASAP. Also fix the puppy. If he’s peeing when you leave that’s a sign of separation anxiety. Crate training will help with him not being all over the house.

Get him fixed and in the meantime get him a belly band. It’s for older dogs that can’t control their bladder as well but it would work to stop him from getting pee everywhere and you can simply wash it to use again. Keep correcting the behavior by saying bad dog when you notice him trying to pee and if he has peed rub his nose in it and say bad dog and place in a time out kinda things like his crate if he has one or locked in a different room for a few minutes

Put his ass outside where he belongs.

I rescued a dog who was two and did this in my house. We got him fixed and used belly bands. He doesn’t have any issues now.

Definitely needs to be fixed as well as the Rottweiler. Belly bands work well for dogs that insist on marking everywhere.

Are they both neutered??? Cause if not that could solve it

First talk to a vet secondly walk him more and play with him alone more he jealous of and trying to find his place in the pack

My dog stopped after we neutered him.

If you have a yard put him outside and let him get used to doing his business outside for a while and then bring him in

Crate training, use vinegar after you soak up messes.

This is a behaviour issue due to all the new people AND another younger dog up in his territory. Getting him neutered if not already might help but training is gonna be needed. Might need to get him in a doggie training class

Absolutely neuter him if he isn’t, after that it’s a behavioral issue. It takes many weeks after neutering before hormones are gone but after that it’s all about the behavior modification. Neutering before it becomes a behavior is preferred (easier) but we can’t go back in time. Good luck!:dog:
