When we go for a walk literally every lamp post or wall we have to stop to spray up! ll let him a few times but it becomes a joke when he does it up every one!
Any tips on how to stop him, or should i let him scent up every tree,lamppost and wall?? Its time consuming and people laugh when it takes 10 minutes to walk up the street!
|I am lucky Langley takes one big wee and is done. But Laika is my sniffer and marker. So I try and place her on the side away from the good smells. I let them smell and mark occasionally but I try to keep the walk moving. I wouldn't let him smell every tree and post over once and awhile reward them with a tree-mail. Bring treats and distract him until he gets it|
|Angus at 2 still squats when he pees and he's done. He has to smell every post and tree along walks. Some days I feel like a rubber band....we walk at a steady pace and there comes a sniffing tree/post along the path and whammo......I'm pulled back!|
From what I've read is that dogs are able to recognize other dogs by "that" smell and that's how they communicate with the other dogs and leave their scent there on top. Glad us humans aren't like that!
|You just need to not let him. If you let him, of course he will keep doing it. |
Use your "leave-it", or uh-uh command and keeping moving. Even a leash correction if he is persistent.
I have a friend who lets her male dogs pee on whatever is right outside the door...drive me absolutely MAD. There is no reason they can't hold it and go in an appropriate spot.
|Luckily, girls aren't quite so bad for this but our first boy Bentley was. He knew that going for a walk meant that, not going for a spot-pee at every pole, post or fence. Our Cocker was REALLY bad for this. He had a serious rationing plan in place for his stops. We never really did get a handle on his exploits.|
Good luck and be firm. You can win this one.
|Oh the topic of smelling stuff. Langley did the funniest thing last night. He was in the yard, he put his nose to the air and made a woof. This guy barely barks. Nose in the air start running around. I was thinking jeesh what the ??? I look up in the field way up there is a cat!!! Amazing nose on dogs!!|
|Our wolf hybrid is the marker. He goes around and marks his territory along our fence line and over the other dogs pee. It takes forever just to take him to go potty!!! Luckily on walks the leave it command works wonders!! If he starts to sniff we tell him leave it, give a little tug on the leash and continue on our way. |
I think this is the first pic of just him I've put up on the forum.
(our hound does mark but hes getting lazy about it and most of the time doesn't wait for the other dogs to get done and pees on them. Hes almost 8 and has epilepsy)
|Bailey (who is a GIRL!!) often tries to stop to mark if we go on walks, to keep her moving I just don't let her stop all the time. If she wants to stop and I don't feel like it, I just keep going, of course I let her stop every now and then for things that seem like they're particularly interesting to her.|
|Jade - that is exactly what I do with our girls.|
|Easy going on a walk, on the lead, outside one major or two pees, THAT IS IT !!!!|
Rest of the time Keep Walking !!!!
My first male, anything upright as far as fences, posts, trees heck everything poking out of the ground, we eventually learnt, one giant pee when we headed off and another allowed on walkies only. Otherwise it would of taken hours to get a few metres down the street. Allow him one or two pees/marks then THAT's IT !!!!!! ON WALKIES. Keep walking after, no sniffing if he stops, tug and keep going. They soon learn, peeing/marking on everything a pain in the you know what as far as the upright walker is concerned.
They have to learn otherwise it is squirt squirt every few metres and you get no where on your out and about walks.
|What next are you going to stop them sniffing each other?|
They are animals try not to remove to much of what makes them.
If you want a human replacement erm get a human.
Either that or stuff them put wheels on them and tow them around on a walk.
As you can tell I embrace the pee..................................
