my dog pees on everything! k α y l α 1 child; RISING FAWN, Georgia 421 posts

I have an almost 2 yr old male Chihuahua and he will not stop hiking his leg on everything! He started doing this about 5 months ago or, and it's just getting worse. He has certain things he pees on everyday. Garbage cans, the couch, shoes, blankets, toilets, dressers, anything that is in the floor. I have a tote in the corner of my room I put clothes in and he's started peeing on that. Crazy thing is that when he does it, he knows he's wrong for doing it. He sneaks to pee on shit, and then goes hides. It's very frustrating. He is potty pad trained and usually does good about but he just rather piss on everything but that. He also has certain spots here he like to shit now too, but it's nowhere as bad as the leg hiking problem.



Does anyone have any advice about what to do, maybe? I have a baby due VERY soon and I'm not going to be able to follow him around everywhere. & I definitely don't want him peeing on my babys stuff. Also, he is NOT fixed. I don't know if that may have something to do with it. He's the only dog in the house.

Him not being fixed is probably why he's doing that.

You need to get him fixed. He's marking.

I wish I wasn't so broke or I'd go get it done asap. It's so fucking frustrating. I'm just afraid he'll keep doing it, even if I do get him fixed, but it's worth a shot.

a lot of humane societies have low cost neutering options.

Have you looked into a low income vet? I know they have one around here, a lot of the soldiers take their pets there.

There is a place around here called Wally & Friends. They do low cost spay & neuters. I took my pit there when they had a special going for pitbulls. Only cost 20$ and they did a good job. But that was months ago. I guess I'll call tomorrow and at least get an estimate, so I know what to save up to. I'd say it'll probably be around 60 or so. Which isn't bad but when you're struggling, it's a lot to spare.

It could be because the baby's due so soon. He's unsure of himself and he's marking his territory. They have sprays you can use to deter him from marking also.

My humane society is offering free spays/neuters to pits and my husband is resisting :roll: :evil: I'm pissed.

I agree that not being fixed is probably the issue but do.you have any other dogs that come to your house? Recently my male American eskimo started peeing on stuff and I was really confused because he is fixed and very well trained until I remembered my grandma brought her very poorly trained dog when she was here for Christmas and she peed everywhere. I cleaned all the places she peed with bleach and he stopped.

That is a good suggestion but he started doing this before I was ever showing or anything. And we've tried the spray. Waste of money, did not work at all.

I've had this problem with my dogs too. They are also Chihuahuas. One is fixed and one is not. They were both very bad about it. The fixed one was probably worse. So I don't think being fixed has anything to do with it. I just had to get them on a schedule of taking them outside around the same time, multiple times everyday. I guess they started marking outside so they didnt feel the need to mark inside anymore.

Thats' awesome. Hell I'd jump all over that. Can't beat it if it's free. I couldn't pass up the 20$ special cause I had the money & I didn't plan on breeding him or anything.

Nope. He's the only dog that comes in. I have 3 big dogs outside. They are strictly outside dogs so I don't believe they would be the problem.

I don't plan on breeding ours either, but my husband has come up with this wacky notion in his head that he needs his testosterone to grow to his full potential :roll: men....
