I recently got a new dog - Eddie - who is part beagle and part coonhound. He is sweet, plays wonderfully with Maddie and has a very gentle temperament. That being said...he marks everywhere! He was neutered when he was brought to the shelter where I got him, at age 8. I have no idea what to do, but I hate finding stinky wet spots in the house!! I bought no-go which is apparently supposed to prevent marking, but what am I supposed to do, spray my entire house with it? Other than following him around constantly or keeping him in a crate when I can't have both eyes on him, I have no idea what to do. Please help!! Totally at my wits end here!

My mom had a cat that when she moved he mysteriously started spraying no idea why, he was fixed and everything. Well later they went to pull up the carpet and found that it reeked of cat urine, the people before them had cats they allowed to spray in the house and he was reacting to that. Could something similar be happening?

Corey also use to mark and still sometimes goes where ever my ferrets have.

Like a puppy I would follow him around. Try to take these steps somewhat that I have been telling others (even though he isn't a puppy this may help):

Here is my training methods to puppy potty training. I have been training dogs for over 4 years now, so hope that this will help. Let me know if you have any questions.

Does the dog free feed? Feed the dog 2 times a day, and only leave it out for 20 minutes. If he has not eaten, then that's his problem. Usually a dog will have to poo 10-20 minutes after eating (and playing and napping). This will help with irregular bathroom breaks, and will get him more on a routine. Routine is KEY!There should always be water available for the dog to drink, but since it's a puppy, there needs to be constant attention...it's harder to break a dog unless you catch him in the habit. For example, when he walks out of your site, follow him. You should be watching your puppy anyways until he is fully potty trained in the first place. If he goes to squat and pee, PICK HIM UP and tell him no! (HE WILL STOP PEEING), then emediatly take him outside and tell him your word for bathroom go potty, and praise him when he is done. There is no point in disciplining a dog when the potty accident has already happened. You never want to punish a natural function.
