    question about my doggy's issue....

    Alrighty i've had my dog for four years plus however many months and when we moved he started to mark his territory inside the we got him neutered and he still does it! We have tried mopping the floors in vinegar because he doesnt like the smell, and we've tried stuff from the stores that erases the smell that invites him to pee there but no matter what he just goes where ever, everytime we catch him we spank him and send him outside and he often gets the cold shoulder for hours which he hates no matter what we do we can't get him to stop and my grandmother and myself are tired of having to shampoo the carpets all the time and the house stinks
    Any suggestion would be great!!!

    How long has he been neutered? Sometimes it can take quite a while for a male dogs hormones to 'settle' or castration.

    Does he have access to outside? How long is he inside for? Was he properly house trained when he was a puppy?

    Even if you are cleaning up with vinegar etc if he doesnt have access to outside and he isnt properly house trained then he will still pee wherever whenever he needs to

    When you catch him peeing inside dont spank him but growl at him and chase him outside. Once he pees outside give him a treat.

    He has been neutered for...should be almost a year and he has easy access to the yard, he is outside all the time, he was properly house trained though it took a really long time to do so he stopped going in the house and was like that for over a year then we moved to the new house and he just goes where ever

    Sometimes you need to re-train when moving to a new house. Although it seems simple to us it can be confusing and unsettling for him.

    He's probably marking the place as his own too

    Sorry I can't be of more help to you

    Two tricks I have done:
    1. Feed him wherever he has peed in the past... not in a bowl, but right on the carpet or floor. He won't pee where he eats

    2. Make him lie down where he peed and shake baby powder all over him and the spot. Make him stay there and deal with YOUR smell instead of his!

    IMExperience, spanking and throwing outside doesn't work. By then it's too late. If you catch him in the act, yes, throw him out and then when you see him pee outside, praise him.
