I know there is a big thread on this topic but I read through the whole thing and I feel I want some more specific advice because I guess I am a bit overwhelmed still. I adopted a dog a week ago and whenever I leave the room or I leave, even for 5 minutes, he pees on anything that is on the floor. Even when he can't see me he will pee. This is after we have been for walks. Note, he is not peeing a lot just like some drops. He does follow me everywhere and we have bonded a lot. I love everything about him except the act I can't go anywhere without him. I work from home and I do want a dog that loves being around me but I also want him to be ok when I go away for 4 hours tops, but right now he isn't even ok when I leave for a few minutes. He used to be alone for a long time before so not sure why he gets so sad now. Is it because when his previous owners left they didn't come back for so long so he thinks I won't? These are my thoughts and notes on my situation: - So he is not castrated yet, could this be a cause? - Because everything is new and nothing smells like him he is marking my place? - I have cleaned everything with Enzyme killing dog spray and he still pees. - He was said to be house trained and never had issues apparently. - Is the problem that I work from home and spent too much time with him? - Is this just something that will stop once he settles into our walking routine? - Should I be crating him until this stops as Id really rather not? - I can't restrict him to one room as I am in an open plan flat. Sorry for my rant, but this is new to me and I'd rather fix any issues now rather than anything sticking as a bad habit.
