So Toby has started the increasingly annoying behavior of marking in our house...mainly in the guest room where the dog boxes are! Any advice on fixing this aside from neutering or making an outside dog??

Can't help you there. I know I caught my lacy doing it ONCE...all it took was a boot to the butt and a hollering voice saying "NO!" I suspect I caught him the first time he did it so he hasn't done it since he was 5 months old. He's 6 years old now. He was neutered at 4 years old. Still raises his leg outside though.

In most cases, young males mark inside either because they don't understand where they should be peeing or they do not respect that you own the house. Next time he does it, roll him in to submission position and hold him there for a good minute or two. Never hurt him while he is sumbmitting to you. When you let him up, push his face in the pee, swat his butt, tell him "NO" and send him off on his business.

Levi sometimes gets shut inside accidentally when I go to school and pees in the kitchen -- boy, when I come home that poor dog is hunkered down on the floor as I beat the snot out of him!! All I ever did was roll him and swat his butt when he peed inside. It doesn't take much to get a smart dog to undertand what you want and they will be upset when they know that they did something wrong.
