Unhappy Need Advice please.......................

I am going nuts. Peppino is peeing on the toys instead of the pee pads. I dont understand why he is doing this. It all started after he had his butt problems. I have tried the putting him on the pee pad and saying good boy, I have tried treats. Nothing Nothing Nothing. This morning he went all the way out to piss on one of the toys, and yet the pee pad was closer to him then the toy. I freaked out!!! and now am feeling so bad. Seriously they all looked at me like I was mommy dearest!!!
I dont have any stores nearby that sell belly bands. Please any advice/tips would be great. I dont want them to think I am Mommy dearest. Babinka and Tiny Tina they are both great................. mind you still working on Ms Tiny Tina she peed on my bed............ I asked her if she worked as a maid in one of those fancy hotels??? I would have rather come to bed to find a mint !!!!! But I got Tiny Tina last march and we are still working things out. Babinka....My crazy baby binkies..... she was 3months old when I got her and it took all but one week to get her fully trained. She will wake me up if she need to go................. Peppino my little male devil, I wonder on what is going on in his head........................ Sorry for this long post, but I am at work in tears as I am frustrated and feeling like a bag of dirt.....................

Is he still on medications?

It almost sounds like marking to me, but I don't know. Even dogs that are fixed can mark. You can always mail order a belly band if you choose to go that way, personally I can not live with a dog peeing all over and I would have to do something.

Other thing you can do is go back to square one for potty training-crate when you can't keep an eye on him.

I would call the vet and ask if the medication could cause him to do this. It does seem strange that it started when he was put on the meds. Maybe he has a UTI or do you think its marking. It's hard to say.

Don't feel bad....we all have those moments where we feel like a bad Mommy....we know you love your fluffs.

I make my belly bands, nothing fancy, my little "tater tot" is fixed but feels the urge to mark...he doesn't do it everyday but I never know when he will get the urge so he wears one (with a pad) everyday. Good luck!!!

I used to use a white men's tube sock. Put a sanitary pad on the one side and pin it around his wee wee. Works like a charm!

How old is Peppino? He is definitely marking his territory/claiming those toys as HIS. If Tiny Tina is urinating in the house, that will trigger him to also.

Bailey marked one time only, when I was visiting a friend who has two Pekinese. Both dogs pee in the house. The male marks (he even lifted his leg on the skirt of a chair I was sitting in once!) and the girl will use pads, but also squats and pees right on the carpet when she feels like it. I am sure to Bailey the place smelled like a giant urinal and he figured it was okay to mark. Fortunately he peed on a piece of newspaper that was on her floor so it wasn't a big deal. I never took him back there, though.

This is a great place for belly bands and the profits go to rescue:

Peke A Tzu Rescue Belly Bands for Boy Dogs

I wouldn't rush into a belly band yet as that is literally putting a bandaid on the problem. I would go back to basic potty training.

@ burping and scratching!! Good for you for maintaining your sense of humor despite your frustrations.

Those are adorable belly bands at the link provided above and could be a sanity saver for you if he becomes incorrigible about marking his toys. And yes, that is what it sounds like, "That is MY toy!!"

If I were in your situation though, I'd want to make another effort at training and go back to square one: Use easily movable baby gates to keep him in whatever room you are in and never let him have the run of the house, always keep one eye on him to try to catch him about to go, crate him when you can't watch him.

I have always had little girl doggies so I really don't know the answer to my next question: Since even neutered boy dogs seem to be concerned about their territory/toys, would it be better/easier/more effective to housetrain them to NEVER go potty in the house - even on a pee pad - but to always go outdoors only. Could the fact that they use potty pads inside the house and so the smell (for their sensitive little noses) is inside the house confuse the house training for them? In other words, they think if it's ok to pee HERE in the house, it must be ok to pee THERE in the house. If they were only allowed to pee outside maybe that would make it clearer to them that peeing inside is ALWAYS a no-no, anywhere in the house. Just a thought. I don't know whether there's anything to it or not.
