Anyone have a suggestion about male marking

We have a new Corgi. He is such a super dog, but he has a bad habit. He wants to mark his territory next to our toilet bowl. He doesn't have accidents in the house at all except for the marking. I don't know how to stop him. Any ideas please help.

My Range does that too... He's not Neutered, but in May he will. But if I have other dogs over and they try to touch his stuff or walk by it, he'll pee on it! I hate it and its so gross! I laugh sometimes, because it's funny he's being a jerk... I know I shouldn't laugh. There was a time too, that he peed around his water bowl. So what I did is limit his water intake and when I know a doggy friend is going to come over I only give him water maybe a couple of hours instead of leaving it out for him to drink from anytime he wants to. I hope it changes after he gets Neutered.

Too bad he can't be trained to go IN the toilet. That would be awesome.

Like Sam said, clean really well with a cleaner meant to break down the urine, and try to keep him out of the bathroom. Sid has an issue with marking the top of the stairs to "his" loft. He's marking his territory in this case. We keep using the cleaner and hope he'll outgrow the need to mark his territory eventually.

We actually used to have a maltipoo that would do that, except he would mark the trash:( I had called the vet about it, and was told that neutering him might not help. We even tried blocking the trash with a pet gate, but he would mark that instead. We could never get him to stop, but if you catch him before he does it, he probably wont. Sorry I wasn't more helpful.

Besides neutering, you'll can try to clean the toilet very well, make sure there are no urine residue in the tile and grout surface. In order to change this habit, you'll need to divert his attention and "throw" him off a bit, you can try placing something else blocking access to the toilet, for example, a stack of magazine, a toilet paper stand...etc. Good luck!

Is he neutered? And is it just the bathroom that he marks?
