|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.

Adopted 1-2 year old Husky Potty Training

I just adopted a 1-2 year old Husky/Border Collie mix, definitely mostly Husky. He is neutered and full of energy. He is mostly crate trained because when I first set it up he went straight inside and was very happy. I have come to find out that he is not house broken and he loves to mark his favorite smells in the house. I understand that getting mad at him is wrong because he doesn't know any better and it is my fault for not catching him in the act. Also I know not to yell at him for it might scare him. Has anyone had success with a Potty training/ indoor marking regiment for an older puppy. If so I would love some advise and like to thank you in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum ... and you probably picked the worst day of the week to ask a question, most of the people seem to disappear on weekend. A few of us older folks hang around but I'll be surprised if you see more than two or three comments before Monday.
You're right on one point though, if you can't "catch him in the act" it's useless to get mad at him later - he only knows you're angry but can't put his marking / peeing as the reason.
I think the best solution to your problem is one that's given here often. When he's out of his crate at home (which presumes you are as well, otherwise he'd be crated?) put him on a leash and tie the leash to you. As soon as you see that leg start to come up (and since he's tied to you, you will see it, right?) give a verbal cue (eh-eh, no, etc [though "no" isn't good, he doesn't know what you're saying no about if he even knows what "no" means]) and then take him outside.
If it's strictly marking, clap your hands - anything to distract him from marking - repeat ad nauseum until he gets the idea that marking is forbidden. Again take him out so he gets the idea that marking the fire hydrant (or tree or bush) is okay, marking the couch isn't.
This, btw, generally works for any behaviour in house that you need to discourage. NILIF (nothing in life is free) - and the price of freedom in house is to not leave a puddle trail around.
