I know this is somewhat male-dog oriented, but I’ve known a few females who are not immune to recovering scents! Quick has just recently started leg lifting. He was neutered at five months at the shelter, and never marked before. Suddenly though, he’s a pee-machine! if he could walk on three legs while spraying, I think he would! I’ve never had a male dog before, so this behavior is totally new to me.
Fortunately he has yet to do this on an agility course (maybe because it’s so much fun?) but I live in fear of him marking a tunnel some other dog may have peed on in a previous class! I’ve thought about putting it on cue, but I do not want this as a trick, at all. It’s never been ‘cute’ to me (I know some people think it’s the best trick ever, and that’s okay, I just never saw the allure). Has anyone had that happen with their dog? Does anybody know of any tricks to lessen it? Someone jokingly said they’d have their marking dog run in diapers, but I just can’t see that as being a feasible solution, LOL!
