    They need neutering if they are not already. They are marking their new territory and showing their dominance.

    Set house rules. Donot let them on chairs or beds and if you go out put big objects in the chairs and close your bedroom door at all times.

    Make them go in their own beds or place a blanket on the floor for them to ly on.

    Do not let them go throygh doors before you and make sur they are fed after you and not from your plate. walk and feed at regulaar times

    eleven How do I maintain my puppies from "marking territory" within the condominium? They aren't neutered, however have appointments in January due to the fact I'm advised this will likely aid. I'm additionally advised they'll give up combating. Is this right and what else can I do? Neutering intact male puppies will traditionally lessen or give up urine marking conduct. However, whilst urine marking has been going down for a while it would possibly not absolutely give up. When puppies inside a family combat, it's traditionally approximately social laws. While neutering does aid to curb combating, traditionally respectable intervention through a veterinary behaviorist is had to solve the situation.

    well you can't really stop it. Its like an urge male dogs have. Are they nuetered? That usually helps but... They are doing this because itsnew territory for them. They are in a new place and so they have to mark everything to show they were there and that its basically there spot. So just watch them closely and get after them when they do it because thats basically all you can do.

    hope this helps and good luck!!! :D

    As was mentioned, it is a dominance thing. To get them to stop they need to know that you are the dominant pack leader.

    Simply, urinate on the spot that they marked and then bite them on their ear.

    If this dosn't work...put them outside until your brother has them house trained.

    (just a joke people....)

    Get you a bottle of 1/4 vinegar and water. Take him to that spot and show it to him and tell him it is a no no. then spray the spot with the liquid and then make him smell of it then you spray his nose just a little. then take him outside. repeat this every time he does it and he will stop.

    you need to frequently bring them outside so they know where to go. Remember dogs are smart and they more you teach them the smarter they get. Just dont beat on them when they do wrong

  • are they neutered? that helps. otherwise tell your brother he'll have to put up a kennel outside with dog houses.
