He's an adorable red/apricot toy poodle that I may choose to breed one day.

1) I don't want him getting my mum's dog pregnant (I don't mind de-sexing Mum's dog because we wont ever breed her)

2) I don't want my little guy to pee everywhere on my friends/family's furniture when I take him visiting

3) I don't want him to get territorial and wee everywhere inside MY house

I've never owned a male dog before and I'm not sure what to expect. Surely # 2 & 3 have a lot to do with the way I train him???

Please help me make a decision.
