So Abe's 10 months old now and hes been marking his territory for a while. He has one or two places on our walk (when on lead) that he's allowed to stop and sniff and pee over the top of everyone else, and he's accepted that, doesn't try to stop everywhere anymore. He's always had free reign in the yard - it's a huge yard and I don't care where he pees. All of a sudden, out of the blue, he's decided he's going to pee on the handrail pole at the top of the veranda steps, 2 feet from my back door, 2 feet from one of their water buckets, and right where Sal gets fed. He's fed about 8 feet away toward the other end of the veranda. He did it once, right in front of me 2 days ago, and was interrupted and reprimanded in the act. Didn't do it yesterday, then this morning after their breakfast I came out to see that he'd done it again. Again, straight after they finished their brekky. The first time he actually pissed IN her bowl! Charmer.
Any suggestions as to how I can nip this in the bud?
