HELP/Before I kill my dog/Update 10-08

Why is my 3 year old 1/2 cocker/poodle lifting his leg and pissing all over the house. This started last week! Is it because he's not neutered???



Tony's getting neutered tomorrow am! Poor baby!!

It's possible. There might be females in heat around your neighborhood or he's marking his territory. Have you had anyone over lately that may have dogs? Perhaps the scent got onto your stuff and he's reclaiming what he sees as 'his'.
Most likely, yes - why do you have an unneutered dog? Do you breed him?
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

UTI? Urgency due to it?

It reduces aggression, humping, marking and frustration from having a sex drive and no release. And of course if your dog ever got free or got away from you at the dog park, it can't impregnate another dog and cause unwanted puppies. Please, please spay & neuter your dogs unless you plan on breeding them.

Everyone I know who has a male dog has had their furniture pissed up at some point. This is why I don't have a male dog.
You should definetely rule out a urinary tract infection. Then think about getting him neutered.

The breeder didn't know what he/she was talking about. In fact, I am beginning to think the majority of them don't at this point in my career.

Neutering/spaying will not stunt an animal's growth. In fact, it has been found that, in cats particularly, they will grow larger if neutered earlier on. The only thing waiting to neuter will do is cause some unfavorable behaviors.

Take him to a vet and rule out medical causes, and then get him neutered.

slight guano: When is the best age to neuter/spay dogs? In the past, they always waited until my dogs were 6 months to neuter, but now all the puppies for adoption are neutered/spayed by 10 weeks. Isn't that a bit young?

I never had this problem with my males. One male did mark in someone else's house, once (they had a female). Otherwise, never! They were neutered at 6 mo.

Many will adopt them out with a "certificate" for them to be spayed or neutered if they aren't old enough and haven't been done before they are adopted out.
