Guest Scoobmom Posted August 19, 2013 Share Posted August 19, 2013 We've had Rudy and Randy for only about 2 weeks now and I'm hoping this one particular behavior of Randy's is just him settling in and will soon go away! I've not dealt with this before. They're both doing great, very well-adjusted, they seem to like us and all. Randy is a bit shy - he's already fine with us, snuggles with us, lays with us, etc. But he's scared when people come over. In the two weeks they've been with us, we've had company over 4 times (no more than 3 people at a time and the people actually haven't stayed more than a few minutes) and Randy has peed (marked really) in the house after each time. When people come in, he bark bark barks. He eventually goes to his bed and settles down and even will sleep and seem comfortable. But then the next morning, we find that he has marked somewhere (usually near the couch where the person was sitting). Yesterday we had 2 people in the backyard and this morning he kept sniffing the chairs outside and then just out of nowhere this morning he marked a different couch inside in a room where the people didn't even spend any time! Other than these marking episodes, he's been perfect. We don't crate them and they're free to leave our bedroom at night, but they really don't. So what do I do? Will this behavior eventually subside? Or do we have to break out the crate and start "housetraining" all over? I hate to make Rudy go through anything since he doesn't do any of this behavior. Also, they're both still wearing belly bands when we're not home and all night. This is getting really frustrating and I'm not sure if I just grin and bear it for a while - or never invite people over anymore! aaarrgh Here's the culprit. Why can't he keep all that pee outside??
