Marking his territory

Koda periodically goes through periods where he comes onto the veranda and marks his territory by peeing on a chair, the pillar or on the floor and tends to dribble i.e.. walk around while still peeing. Maybe he's trying to communicate something but it strikes me to be some kind of dominant behaviour. I have now restricted him and roped off the veranda in an effort to send him the message that this will not be tolerated.

Aside from this, he does seem to have strange peeing habits, kind of like walking off while he's still busy. Is this normal?

Any advice please.

Thanks in advance

please,please it has nothing to do with dominate behavior it is what dogs do but since dogs are suppose to be domesticated & live with mankind. Dog owners should have two lists an allowed list of behaviors and a not allowed list of behaviors. This is one of the things that should be on the NOT allowed list go back to house breaking because it is a house breaking issue.Crate and tether the dog to you if not crated. Make him think his world will end if he lifts that leg one more time in the house. This can be accomplished by yelling his name in mid hist taking him outside and loudly telling him off all the way out the door.You have to be diligent it should not take as long as housebreaking did he just does not know its not allowed. Also will help if you get a black light and go over chairs,sofa's.bookcases anything vertical in your house and use a cleaner designed for pet urine. Good Luck

In my experience, walking around while still peeing and dribbling is not normal behavior. I would have him seen by your vet.

I would agree with a vet check, could be UTI or something more sinister.

Otherwise I'd say you need to teach him what hes not allowed to pee on!

I have been having the same issue with my puppy. The vet didn't seem to be alarmed by the behavior, and said he was fine. He is crate trained, and doesn't have a problem with holding it then.

I would not be satisfied with a "He looks fine" diagnosis if my pup was doing this. I would insist on a urinalysis, and if that came back fine but the issue persisted, I would insist on a culture and sensitivity test. If my vet was reluctant to go to all of that effort, I would find a vet who was more proactive and took my concerns more seriously.

our dobie, Kiki, used to get up and start walking before she was done peeing too. after a trip to the vet it turned out she had a bladder infection. the vet said that the reason Kiki would talk off before finishing her pee was because the infection caused crystals to form in her pee and that peeing would be painful and more painful at the end of a pee. so the try to prevent the pain the dog would attempt to stop peeing. After some huge pills twice a day for a long time Kiki now pees in comfort

I have this issue with my dogs now. They are fully house trained and know exactly where they are and are not allowed to' go to the toilet' however they have both started to do it anyway. They will literally let me stand outside for ages to make them pee and then literally the second my back is turned they go and do it inside my house. Twos and ones! They are told off firmly while I point out the wrong behaviour and taken straight outside and when they do it outside they get rewarded so I just don't understand it plz help x

If it were me, I wouldn't be turning my back on them at this moment. One would be crated and the other tethered to me until it was straightened out. marking is not PEEING so they can be housetrained just fine but still want to mark. Are they peeing or marking?

House breaking 101 :
If you take them out on about a 6 ft leash it helps keep them focused tell them go potty ,hurry up or what ever words you want to use just use the same words each time. Stand in one spot let them go all around you till they find the spot then Praise like it is the greatest thing you ever saw. If they do not go in about 20 minutes go back in and crate them or tie them to you them go back out in about 30 minutes.pups need to go out after naps,playing, eating & drinking 1st thing in the morning last thing at night depending on the age of the pup you may need to take them out at night too. Always use a pet urine enzyme to clean up all traces of urine or feces you can use a black light to find all traces. It takes about 3-6 months of contestant training to house break a pup the more accidents they have the longer it takes. Hang a bell on the door you go out you ring it until the pup gets the idea how to ring it yes sometimes they ring it to go look at a squirrel but its a phase they go though you just have to go though it with them. Do not forget to praise each time they go to reinforce the potty training. If you are consistent you will also have a pup/dog that will go potty on command comes in handy when it rains,snow, is icy, on a trip at night . People will think you are a amazing trainer too. Good Luck with your new baby, this works for any age puppy or dog.

This is what I don't get they are like that most of the time. They do know exactly what to do and do ask to go out but sometimes just decide not to they are fully house broken and never did it at the start they just randomly did it one day and never stopped. Also they are 4 and 5 so have been house broke for many years so I don't get what has changed

Toorc was dribbling all over the place after peeing and it literally got to the point where before I let him inside I would have to express the remainder of his pee out with a towel (GROSS) My vet eventually treated him for a UTI when I kept demanding that something was wrong and it finally stopped
