Home page articles

How many people go straight to the board and miss the articles on the home page?

Since we moved, I have had issues with Valentin peeing indoors. Ok, I know he is a dachshund and they are rarely 100% housetrained, but he is ignoring his pee pads and watering the furniture.

I have had goldens for 30 years and am newer to the dachshund breed. The home page article had a great point that I had missed. Dogs do this to mark their territory - and it could be triggered by people walking by the windows.

Well, the ENTIRE WORLD passes right up against our ground floor gallery. I have had kids standing on the ledge to look in our windows. I am tempted to ask people if they would like a gate installed at the other end of my gallery too, so they could save one more step.

I think this is the missing link as to why Valentin is watering one particular chair by the patio doors.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU and let Marko and the writers know that the articles are appreciated and can even teach an "old dog owner" a new trick.

For an adult male dog who is marking territory in the house, you need to bring out the big guns - try a belly band!!:)
