Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Potty Training an older Husy mix   Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:35 pm

Hello,

I currently have a 2 1/2 yr old (60lb) Husky/Low-content Wolf/Native American Indian Dog. I didn't adopt it, but my previous renter who bread three generations of dogs to make this one, basically left him with me when he moved out of state. I have been told we can either keep him or sell him. My biggest problem though, is that at 2 1/2, he is unfixed, and his dominance traits have come out where he has to mark almost everything in the house. If we turn our backs, I can find carpet, sofa's, or most recently my cabinets marked.

He is an absolutely sweet dog, that is more husky than he is wolf (about 30% wolf). You can pick him up, toss him, he plays with kids, puppies, etc. He doesn't dig, howl, bark, or anything. He is just a gentle soul that plays well with my Golden Retriever/Australian Shephard mix. But if I cant get this marking under control, I am going to have to sell him. Any thoughts?

Note: He is crate trained for when we leave the house.

Thanks.

Getting him fixed will make a huge difference. I just rescued an unfixed 2 year-old male that marked everywhere. About a week after getting keno fixed we were able to house train him like we would a puppy and he's had no issues. He still marks some outside but nothing like before and only after my other dog. Just make sure you really hit any previous urine spots with an enzyme spray to take any trace away to not tempt him.
