The marking on dogs bed, including his and anywhere else that he feels is needed is a problem. I bought a spray at Pet Supermarket he just inds another spot to mark. What can I do to stop this behaviour?
    Safe spaces are keay during transitions to new home... (dogs by nature are den animals .... and when a dog is in a new place/home... they can get overwhelmed by the large new space/territory...feeling as though they have to protect it all (marking behaviour is an action).

    Is he already neutered?

    Crate training can help ... and ease the situation.
    and also the use of a *Belly Band* could help (cute fabric belly wrap, velcro closure....and an insert for a pee pad). I will post link of someone who makes these... they are not usually/normally sold in pet stores.

    Best wishes with your new Bully boy!

    Toby my eb went through a stage where he was marking my stuff. Like a duffel bag with my uniform in it. Then he marked a coat that was hanging on the back of a chair and for several weeks that was a problem. These were all before he had his surgery, he was 3 before we neutered him and he hasn't done it since then. It was strange how he marked my stuff.

I have a neutered yorkie whom is now 5 got neutered at 16 weeks he was scent marking on dog beds and legs of furniture this is what worked for me. Good luck.

    Bruno is doing much better with marking, I used No Go and it stopped his marking all over the house. He still marks Emma's bed but not as much as before. Emma and Bruno are doing great together, they play and wrestle with each other, that's when they are not napping together. He is turning out to be a great bully, we are happy to have taken him in to our lives.

    If you find large puddles of urine on the floor it is more likely that the dog had to pee and couldn't or didn't want to go out. With urine marking the dog deposits a smaller amount of urine. Marking in the house is usually done to an upright surface such as a doorway, table leg or piece of furniture. Dogs often mark on objects. Quite often the object is something new or different with unfamiliar smells that has come into the house.

    I guess I'm lucky, Vegas is almost 3 and he's never lifted his leg. Yes, he squats like a girl. Does anyone find this odd? Actually, I take that back, he hardly even squats. He barely bends his knees to pee. He's an upright pee'er. Orion on the other hand, she likes to pee on stuff that belongs to Vegas.

    Not odd at all, my boy does kinda a squat to pee with one of his hind legs slightly lifted, it is so funny to watch. BUT he will left his leg to every inch of my backyard (or should I say his backyard) while little Mugsy follows right behind with his leg lifted. It is their daily routine here.

    My EB after having his surgery stopped hiking as much, he squats to pee often now. He only hikes when its a short shot to mark on walks. I have a nonEB that hadn't hiked until recently, he stretched out like a horse to urinate. Toby the EB marked my stuff for a while but that hasn't been an issue recently.
