    Default Pee's On Everything

    I use to breed cattle dogs for many years and we still have our male.
    We had him desexed about 6 years ago so we didn't have to worry about him
    mating with our Dogues..
    Ever since he has been fixed he pee's over everything..
    Seriously he pee's every 5 minutes, I'm sick and tired of it..
    Is there anything that you can do to prevent it ?
    It's not like the area is new as he has been here all his life..

    It stinks

    I can only imagine how you feel.
    Bandit did it for a week after being away for three weeks with my son. I felt he was just marking his territory as his scent may have been diluting. Thankfully he then stopped. I could have strangled him but 6 years? OMG.
    My only suggestion is when he is inside he is tethered to you with a leash so if he wants to mark you can say no and reward when he does it outside.
    Has he been checked out by a vet?

    Classic obsessive compulsive behaviour. The only thing I can recommend is going back to square one, treat him like a puppy and keep him in one small area until he's housetrained again. When you take him out of that area keep him on a lead and verbalize a strong disapproval and jerk the lead whenever he cocks his leg. You should see a reduction in the peeing but without a hell of a lot of work and dedication you won't be able to break this obsession.

    He does not come inside the house at all.
    we don't have any animals inside but 2 ragdoll cats and of course
    unless they are a baby still.
    We are on big property and he just pee's on everything.
    The side part of our house I spray every weekend with citronella
    to try and get rid of the stench .

    Dam dog..

    maybe block access to the side part of the house. Citronella may just aggravate the need to pee, white vinegar and a 1/2 teaspoon of lavendar oil (per litre) might work better. Failing that a dab of vicks vapor rub on the bits he sniffs before cocking might help - would need to be repeated. a few drops of eucalyptus oil in the spray bottle might also help - it may also dissolve the spray bottle.

    And maybe consider changing his diet - some food stinks more than others after digesting... eg asparagus is bad. eggy things and onions are really bad (depending on who eats them)... Some dogs are allergic to some meat varieties. Turkey might be better than roo for instance.

    A little bit of dill is supposed to be good for the digestion. As is apple (if you can persuade a dog to eat it). Yogurt might also help with the digestion. The stuff with the "good bacteria".

    And maybe a vet check?

    I have always found that the pee of desexed males is much less strong smelling than the pee of entire males, but if they have a urinary tract infection -male or female, desexed or entire, the pee can become very offensive smelling. My vet has told me that people don't always notice UTI's, especially in outside dogs. I hope that's not the case, but it might pay to check, especially with such frequent peeing.
