Use a belly band in the meantime. We use that with any new males who think they need to mark. It usually stops in a few days.

I feel for you. I had a male puggle who did the same thing. It didn't matter how long we were out he always saved some for home. Unfortunately with males it's your furniture that gets hit too.

You can take him to school because he'll be "nut free". Ha!

Sorry to hear you are having issues.

I'm glad he doesn't have a UTI but do you think that perhaps with the new apartment he was just a little confused as to what to do? Or where to go? How long have you been there? Most dogs don't mark a human... usually its an object.

In my honest opinion, it really doesn't sound like he's marking.... if he's walking around peeing it sounds like he just has too much in his bladder. At 8 months, he's still very much a puppy and they do have accidents. Does he lift his leg and mark or is he squating? or just walking around peeing? To me, he doesn't sound like he's marking at all.

The neuter will not guarantee that he will stop either if that's what he's doing. I would suggest putting some time into training for that. Treat him like a puppy and start taking him out more and limiting his water at night. The vets will always say to neuter the dog and all your problems go away... Soooooo not the case.

If you were planning on getting him done anyways, thats fine but it sounds like he's having accidents as opposed to marking his territory.

Jake was neutered and he still peed in the house and loved to hump his toys and Hailey. In his defense... She's a bit of a sleeze and encouraged it lol

I don't have any suggestions to help you. I just learned to deal with it.

You could leash him and teach him to tell you every time he needs to go out and relieve himself. We taught Liam to "speak" and sit by the door every time he wants/needs to go out. Emma learned from Liam to do the same.

Both of my dogs were just fixed on Tuesday and its the most miserable thing I've ever gone through with either of them. Liam surgery was very invasive because he was cryptorchid. Be prepared for at least 10 days of limited activity and a lot of time in the crate. Very sad.

I know it doesn't gaurantee to fix the problem to have him neutered but we were planning to have it done anyway and he'll be about 9 months old when it's done so we're comfortable doing it now. I have never had a male so I'm not really sure how the marking thing works but from everyone who has seen it who has males, they all say he's acting just like their pups at this age when they started marking. I think he's intending to just mark but he doesn't have a shut off valve yet so he just walks while peeing. If that makes sense? LOL.
