Hi there,

 

Has Moby been neutered?

 

Are there other dogs currently in the household?

 

Is he passing regular amounts of urine when he goes in the house, or is it small amounts in certain areas?

 

Thanks,

Dr. Paul

OK, thanks for the information. If the second testicle hasn't dropped by now, he will need a surgery to go find and remove it.

 

You could be dealing with one of a couple issues. The first thing I would do is have your veterinarian check his urine to make sure he does not have an underlying infection or other concern causing him to need to keep his bladder empty. This is not very likely, but should always be ruled out in cases of inappropriate urination.

 

What you are describing sounds behavioral. He is likely marking his territory, especially if he can tell that you have had dogs previously. This is very common in dogs who have not been neutered. The behavior should decrease once he is neutered, but, unfortunately, once an intact male dog has started marking, it can still be a tough habit to break. After he is neutered, if the training is not working to stop the problem completely, you may need to engage with a behaviorist for specific and intensive training modalities to completely resolve the issue.

 

Hope that helps. Please let me know what other questions you have.

 

Thanks,

Dr. Paul
