Question:

: My 1 1/2 year old male just started lifing his leg on our 9 year old female while she is doing her business outside. I have only caught him doing this a few time, but have noticed his marking on her more than several times. If I yell at him while he is doing it, she gets upset and thinks I am yelling at her. Any suggestons or thoughts on why he is doing this.


Response:

The only suggestion I know is to let the female out first and take care of her business and then let the male out, he will still mark where she has gone but at least not on her. Our male would do this also but allowing her to take care of business first has helped alot. You can also try taking him out on lead and when he attempts the marking correct him with a stern NO!
