Marking in indoor spaces that are not his hime

Recommended Posts

We have had Rook for a couple of weeks now and he has settled in beautifully. For the first couple of days we had some issues with marking indoors but after a few “no”s (and some lemongrass spray) he quickly learnt to treat the whole house as his kennel and not to mark it. But I am worried about what will happen if we take him to other people’s homes/ (dog-friendly) restaurants. Any advice on how to approach this would be much appreciated. Thanks!

You could use a belly band for the short time you are there. If the belly band continues to be dry, then you know he’s ok other places. If he lifts his leg, the belly band will soak it up.

Dog friendly restaurants should have the necessary equipment to clear up any accidents. You could take some cleaning equipment with you for the first few times you visit friends just in case but as you said he's picked up quickly not to mark your house so he shouldn't do it inside elsewhere. Just make sure he has the opportunity to go before hand.
