Bruiser just turned 6 in September. We had him neutered as a baby as soon as the vet said he was old enough. He has always been a "marker" though. Now there are no other males around and it's not that he doesn't like going outside... he loves it! But he always saves a little bit to mark.
The vet has even checked for kidney/bladder issues and drawn blood and all is clear and good. He said sometimes if a testical hasn't dropped when they are neutered they only take out 1 .. but both of Bruiser's are out.
All that I can do these days is keep a "wee-wee band" on him at bedtime and when he's in a carpeted room. I use pet gates in some rooms because I can't keep having my carpets cleaned all the time! The only trouble with the band is sometimes he gets a little rash or irritation (which I have ointment for but still I hate that this happens).
Anyway, my question is : Do any of you have any ideas for us? I would love nothing more than for Bruiser to not have to wear his band at night. He seems not to even notice it on but I am sure he'd be more comfy with it off. The vet says he's just a territorial pup and it's more of a "behavioral" issue. It just seems like there should be something we can try!
