BC-Liz Posted December 10, 2009 Report Share Posted December 10, 2009 So this isn't my adopted dog but my friends and she's having issues. She,Talon, came from a shelter at about 10 months old, was likely born in one, never knew a home before my friends. So obviously she was not potty trained yet. They already have one dog (a Rottie, Kato) that they were successful in training and figured, no sweat. So they've have Talon about a month and have done pretty well so far. She rarely has accidents but about every 5 days or so she'll have an accident in the house, this most recent time (yesterday) was on Kato's bed. When she told me that the "dominance" alarm went off in my head but she says the dog is not very dominant (btw my fiance and I think she is a BC/Lab mix...she definitely has lab at least). She says Talon usually licks Kato's face and rolls on her back to him and what not so yeah, that sounds like she's not being dominant...but then why would she pee on his bed? The other times she has accidents are when other dogs, not Kato are in the house. My friend thinks it's because she's playing and just forgets to ask to go out...but again it sounds to me like a domance thing. Like she's marking her house to the other dogs...but I'm no expert so I figured I'd consult the forum. Any advice I can give my friend? Tips? Training? Your comments and advice are greatly appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
