Do female boxers mark? I know males will, but wasnt sure of females. I noticed that where ever Savannah pee's Reese will go and pee on top of it. It seemed like marking to me, but i wasnt sure. Does that mean Reese is trying to be Alpha? Is this opening a whole can of worms between the two of them?

I know Maddie will mark. It's almost every time where a dog has peed before her. If she is playing with her buddy Elvis and he pees somewhere she will go over and sniff and pee over where he did. It's usually when he is gone, so I don't know if it is a dominance issue or not. I just thought she was marking her territory, it's her yard type of thing. Good question!

yeah, I don't know either. Guido always has to pee where Macy does, but Macy doesn't care where Guido pees.

Macy asserts her dominance over Guido by attempting to mount him...it looks so silly.

Maggie marks ALL THE TIME!!!  When we walk she lifts her leg and pees at least 5 times.  Jessie has never done it, so far!

OMG, she hikes her leg? Wow, now I don't think I have ever seen a female do that....Neither Tia or Angel have shown any interest in having to pee where the "boys" pee, so I guess with mine it's no big deal, but yea I could see where they are also trying to "mark" their territory..Interesting thought Andrea

Only when she is on an actual walk.  When she is out in the court yard or on my sister deck, she will squat.

so since she is doing it immediately after Savannah pees..could it be a dominance thing? Savannah will stand up and sit next to me and Reese goes straight to where savannah was just squatting and pee more. Is she possibly trying to show Savannah she is alpha?

We have had Kash for a week.  Hanna always went in the same spot.  However now she will go right over and pee over his pee.  Likes its a "pissing" contest or something.  ha ha.

I find it hilarious, but I guess you can say its a mark, and a remark, and a remark.

Female dogs will mark also....They say females are actually more territorial then males.  She is probably wanting to be "top dog"

I think i would get locked up for that...i dont think the officer would believe me if i tried explaining the situation

"no officer i am not urinating in public...i am showing my dogs that i am the alpha..."

i would be behind bars so fast!!  :lol:
