How to stop marking behavior
We decided to wait until Fergus was 18 months old before neutering. His "day" is coming up in 5 weeks.
He hasn't had any problems other than when outside & off lead or on a flexi lead he marks like crazy. We should have tried to control this when is was on the flexi but didn't. So the behavior has been estabilished - shame on us.
Is there any chance to limit or eliminate this behavior? While he has never "marked" in our home or anyone else's I know that if another dog marked in their house and he visited I would be concerned he would mark.
What methods could we use and should we wait until after he has been neutered? If we keep him on the short lead he can't seek out places to mark but he still lifts his leg when he goes.
