Is your dog fixed? If he’s peeing all over and on people, he may be marking his territory.

are you crate training him??? That is the best way to handle the peeing pooping thing and house train him quickly. Get a big cage and put lots of fluffy blankets and he’ll love it!

I’m a big fan of It’s Me or the Dog. Here‘s the training tips page…maybe you will find something through that!

Right now I’m having issues with my little dog becoming yappy at 2.5 years. Oh the furbabies!

WOW. Yea I’ve never heard of a dog doing that in their own crate 🙁  Only thing I can think of is go outside with him and make sure he pee’s and poops and then put him in the crate…

I have been working with animals for a while in a professional setting, and from a professional stand-point, good job taking the step to neuter.  However — he appears to be young.  How old is he, exactly?  Puppies/young adults are notorious for acting like that!  When he piddles on someone, firmly tell him, “NO!” and discipline him (preferrably by LIGHTLY hitting his nose with two fingers) and immediately take him outside.  Eventually, he will associate piddling and going outside together.

Always be firm in your commands.  Never say, “Come, come here, come to me, come!” Say “Come.” firmly once.  They know when you mean business!

First, lookatthatfaceohmygoodness!

Ahem.

Are you exercising him enough? Long walks? Walks stimulate bathroom needs. Plus, pits have a ton of energy and if he’s still a pup, he’ll need quite a bit more.

Other than that, I’m not really sure. I would go back to the shelter and ask if they can recommend a trainer for him. Petsmart is good and all, but this guy may need one on one time. Peeing on your guests is quite a behavior!

If you can afford it, look into doggie day camp.  My pup used to behave this way when we were gone just because she was lonely.  We now take her to camp twice a week and not only does it tire her out but she gets enough company that she’s fine until Saturday and Sunday come and we’re there to hang out with her.

My dog used to peep in his crate too when he got lad at us. We gave him cheese everytime he peed outside and made it a very big deal of it. And went he did it in his crate don’t give him any attention at all left him in there or 20 minutes. ui

It sounds to me like he needs quite a bit more exercise. I’d say the 30 minute walk plus at least another 30 minutes of hard activity, be it ball throwing, jogging, etc. And I’d throw in 20 minutes of training exercises too.

 

How big is his crate? Does he have room to pee in it and then move to the other end? If so, I’d make it smaller with a divider or just get a smaller sized one for now. Until he learns not to soil his crate I would only make it large enough for him to lie down in.

@Mrs_Amanda:  Hmm, he’s starting to be at the age where he’s sort of “set in his ways” but don’t give up!  It will take a bit longer to train him, but it’ll become even harder the older he gets.  Be persistent, it may take a bit to break him of his current habits.

@Westwood:  

I was going to say the same thing about the crate, I would also suggest blocking off part of it until he learns not to do his business inside.
