He pees in HER crate

Postby scottermac » Mon Sep 29, 2014 7:39 pm

We have a 2 yr old male pit mix and we decided to add another dog to our household. He added a female dog about the same size, age and energy level as our male pit mix. They get along for the most part but there's one behavior that has us scratching our heads. About once a week or so, he will pee in her crate. It's done in the middle of the night, She isn't in the crate at the time. Besides crating him all night (which is being considered) what can we do to put an end to this behavior? It seems like he's doing it to express his displeasure with her.

Nope, dogs like pee. They sniff it, lick it, roll in it. :D

Take any bedding or anything porous out of the crate and wash it thoroughly in a product made specifically for pet urine. Clean the crate thoroughly with a product like that too - Lysol or Bleach aren't your friends here, you really need an enzymatic cleaner formulated for pet urine.

Then close her crate door before you go to bed. :D

Make sure he is going outside enough to do his business. Also a reason he might be peeing in it over and over again is maybe you aren't cleaning it well enough each time. Even if WE can't smell the urine...the dog can. Needs to be cleaned like with Lysol wipes and then make sure to use a paper towel to wipe the residue from the cleaner off, so they don't get the cleaner in their mouth by accident
