  How can i stop my male dog peeing on the flower pots on my patio?
I do have an area set aside for toilet use, my female dog uses it, but the male wont pee there - even though there IS a tree there for his usage.
My patio pots are starting to pong, please help!

I know i could scrub them down, but its not a nice job and i have lots of pots!

lightly spank him for using it, it may help to put his old poo on the toilet/mat. it will help him feel more at home with it
Hope This Helps!

you need to show the dog that you are the boss.if he does this again don't be afraid to hit him. if you do this he will then realise that he cant dot this

hi the reason your dog is spraying the pots is because his scent is present on them and he considers that his territory now dogs are very habitual creatures and as long as the smell is around the pots its difficult if not impossible to stop him here are a couple of ideas to help:

1, would it be possible to put him on a leash and walk him away from the pots in time the scent will dissipate

2, you need something strong to kill the odour something like jeyes fluid is good it will deodourise effectively but you must keep your pets away from those areas as its pretty harmful stuff

3. if none of the above are possible when he goes out stay out with him and when he goes to tinkle on the pots tell him no in a short sharp manner try raising your voice a bit too direct him to the area where you do want him to do it and eventually he will get the hang of it may take some time but it will work in the long run just adopt the patient and firm approach for best results good luck hope this helps

if you get them neutered young enough they will not do that....... but if not you can't stop it and don't hit them or else they will learn to be afriad of your hands

He's marking his territory, and he will continue to do so as long as he's a dog.

Get some shelving and move your pots above his peeing radius. Otherwise, take it from me, animal pee does kill plants. My cat poops in mine sometimes.
