:mad: My housebroken, fastidious B has recently "decided" (I'm using that term loosely) to urinate in my house. We just had a barage of tests done to rule out any medical reasons why our 8 year old neutered male would start urinating in the house.
Nothing in his environment has changed in the past 7 months. This behavior began about 2-3 months ago. We think it has to do with marking his territory against the cat (who has lived with us for over 2 years) as we only catch him spraying when the cat is watching.
Any ideas people? This is driving me batty. He's always been such a well trained housebroken dog and I'd love suggestions as to how to correct this behavioral issue. Currently, when we catch him in the act, we immediately take him outside, then put him on the leash indoors and "put him thru his paces" (ie make him follow us, sit everytime we stop, obey commands and just behave directly in front of us.) Any ideas? Again, we've ruled out all medical possibilities (ie diabetes, UTI, renal/kidney issues, fanconi, food poisening, etc).
