P-d off Bitch...

Postby Calypso » Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:47 pm

I took the dogs for an afternoon walk today. Usually when we walk it's morning and people haven't left for work yet. Today we walked past the house with two English setters who's sole purpose in life is to bark uncontrollably (says the woman with a collie). Havana squatted for a long pee at the edge of our yard, but she very deliberately paused just long enough to mark directly in front of their house as the dogs continued to go ape. She looked at their window while she did it.

Anyone else have a dog who pees to make a point? There was no sniffing or deliberating, it was walk, look at the house, squat briefly, and move on. I didn't even have time to tell her "no mark" and mover her along. Sassy dog!

Brinca. :lol:

and Edith, the 11 yr old female Boxer that lives right on our morning park. matter of fact, this morning her dad was walking them and she was off leash. she walked right up to the fence of the tennis courts, lifted her leg & half squatted. sister was NOT happy about not being able to come inside the tennis courts to let everyone know she's the boss of all dogs. she's really very sweet & hilarious. but i still suggested the mom of the Boston move him away from the fence. :lol:

Oh totally. Tricky has aimed her butt at the barky schnauzer next door and pooped right up against the fence. Although lately she's more apt to play bow and run along the fence trying to get a chase game going. Schnauzer is not amused.

I read something somewhere (here? Maybe, my memory's shot.) that peeing and marking serves to reduce stress hormones by emptying the bladder and the relief that brings. :confused: I have to give some truth to it since Max pees after every dog encounter where he freaks out. He does pee in every yard that has a resident dog though so maybe he's giving the house dogs the Max-scented finger. :lol:

Yes! and I swear I was just going to post about this! On our AM walk there are these dogs freaking out behind a fence and every time all three of my dogs conveniently have pee and usually drop a deuce too. Drives me crazy!

KaeJae marks incessently when he feels anxious, wound up, nervous, etc. So, she probably felt a bit on edge and decided to mark, that's my guess.

Yup, definitely a stress displacement behaviour. I do wonder if Arlo's peeing, despite the changed recall cue, is left over from my idiot-training in years past. I don't know for sure, or if its matter of indecision - stay here and smell stuff, or go back for a handful of treats then come back to smell? The answer isn't as obvious as one might hope!

Linc poops on collards. And broccoli. He even spins in circles before stopping to hover over them. Anything that can be pooped on... Linc is your man.

Now, on to the actual subject. Peepers (that's one of Pia's most used nicknames - Peeps and Peepers) is definitely an "I spit on you!" pee-er. It's like a middle finger for her. But then, she's a marky little thing in general. Naughty girlie dog. It's like I can see her thinking, "Oh yeah?"

In my puppy classes I have puppies use displacement behaviors all the time....when things get wound up, one will stop and scratch, sometimes squat and tinkle, sometimes turn and sniff it's hiney.....anything to break up the moment and then restart again. I bet that's what little Miss Marky was doing for sure,,,,barking maniac dogs, displacement behavior to let some of the emotion out.

I'm pretty sure Sam peed a little on Tricky's head today. I'm choosing not to smell her and find out right now lol

Boy pee'd on Higgy The Lab's head yesterday morning. it wasn't his fault. he was already mid-stream when she walked into the bushes to get a tennis ball she'd spotted on her approach to greet us. poor thing emerged from the bushes with the ball in her mouth and the top of her head soaking wet. she was still all smiles, though. :lol:
