Default Could this bring trouble?

I have only rarely seen Prince lift his leg and mark something like a bush or mailbox outside. He has never marked inside that I am aware of. Something has been in our yard lately. I can tell because in the south we use pine straw as a mulch in landscape beddings. I don't know if it is another dog or another animal but something has been digging in the pine straw at night in one part of our yard (the potty place of course). For the last couple days Prince has been marking the bushes in that area a lot. Is this a bad thing, will it lead to a marking problem? It is a new thing for him and is clearly in response to something that has been in our yard. I just don't want him to bring this behavior inside.

My male dogs have always marked outside, but never have done so inside. I don't think it will be a problem.

Nah, I don't think you need to worry. Brody has never marked inside but he's a marking machine when we go outside on walks. It's just a way for them to communicate with other dogs or mark territory.

A others have mentioned if he's never done it indoors I would not worry about it.
My little guy does it outside too, but he squats? but has not done anything of the sort inside.

Thanks, Prince has been very, very good with his house habits sinc ei got him and I would prefer it to stay that way. He is just really marking that one area but it is clear some animal has been there!

Jaxx marks outside but he squats to do it or I assume he is marking because he does a little tiny pee and then walks on but if we are in a new area he will do this several times. He has never done it inside though.
