Big Problem

We have 20 month old male doberman, he is neutered and has been since he was 9 months old. We have a had a huge problem with him peeing in the house! We have had blood work done, urin work... Everything you can think of we have done vet wise. We have come to relize that he is just being a jerk! He is kennel trained but is now starting to pee in his kennel. Any suggestions why he is doing this? Last night he peed all over the house with out giving us any signals that he needed to go. Just ran around peeing!

Does he drink tons of water in one sitting? Some dogs load up and then have to explode. The only signal he might be giving you is to come & look you in the face - not go to a door. So heighten your awareness and see if he becomes aggitated before these mistakes - that might be your only clue.
If he is a big drinker, you might have his blood checked for diabetes. You could also change his food over to a raw meat diet. Then he would get most of his moisture from his food and not drink so heavily. Some dry or moist foods contain a lot of salt and force the dog to drink more which makes him burst.

Tucker holds it so long sometimes that on the way down the stairs to the front door you find a little widdle trail. I can't get mad at him he tried, he holds most of it till he gets out but once in awhile you find the trail from step to step.

Some male dogs continue to mark even after being neutered.

If you are 100% sure he has no physical problem, then I highly recommend you try a belly band on him. This does seem to stop this habit.
