    Default Alrighty Then

    Our Welsh Terrier died two weeks ago. For fifteen years she was the Alpha dog. She was not a benevolent ruler either. She ruled by sheer feisty domination. All the dogs were under her command and they knew it and obeyed her rules.
    Fast forward to the present. Rico is is a nine year old Havanese. Taffy ruled him with an iron paw and he steered clear of her. Since Taffy died Rico has begun peeing on Daphne. Usually on her hips on backside because hey, he's short and Daphne is at least double his size. This morning he somehow managed to pee on the top of her white head! I have no clue how he managed that.
    It's never a lot of pee, always just enough so we all know he was there. I understand that he is marking her and most likely is trying to assume the top dog throne. My question is, should I now leash him and try corrections or just keep wiping Daphne down Until they've got this straightened out? We have the invisible fence so the dogs are free range. As far as I know he does not pee on Poncho the five year old Chihuahua. Both males are neutered.
    Thanks in advance.

    Daphne is the new comer n NO don't allow Rico peeing on her n you just continuing wiping her down. She's not his doormat I know Rico is 9yrs old but you're going to have to grab Rico when you see him do it and with a BIG firm NO, put him in a kennel/crate or somewhere he doesn't like for a good while. At that age he'll know he cant do that. Daphne doesn't deserve to be pee on.

    You need to step in and show them all who the real alpha is...and you can do it by other means

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    :::Oscarmayer::: I adore you. I never want to be harsh to My dogs. They are gentle souls. I think there is uncertainty since Taffy disappeared.

    I think, you are right.

    BTW, I'm very sorry for your loss of Taffy.

    Yes, he is trying to take over, so a firm NO when you see it happen.... you can't do anything if you find it after the fact... correction has to happen during the action otherwise it is worthless.
