Frequently Asked Questions
How to stop a dog from marking in the house
- Block off areas of your home your pup has already marked. These areas are extra appealing to your pup, so showing they are off-limits is very important in deterring your dog from marking there.
- Resolve any conflicts or tensions between your pets.
- Restrict your dog's access to windows and doors so they cannot see any animals outside of your home that may excite them.
- When your dog is inside, watch for signs they are about to urinate. When they begin to mark, interrupt them loudly and take them outside. When they urinate outside, give them lots of praise for being such a good pup!
- Look for signs of your dog marking out of separation anxiety
Do female dogs mark their territory too?
Yes, female dogs can mark their territory too! This happens especially when they are in heat!
Why is my neutered male dog marking in the house?
Neutering or spaying alone won’t solve the problem. If your dog has gone a long time without being neutered, it will be more difficult to train them not to mark in the house. This is because marking is a learned behavior that will take some time and love to unlearn.

How Pawtect™ Pads Can Help With Male Marking.
When male dogs mark, they tend to mark in the same places. You will need to train him to think otherwise. While you are training or have our belly bands off, lay our pee pads around those areas he likes to mark. This will save you from dealing with messy clean ups.

No one wants messy paws making a mess throughout their house. That’s why our washable pee pads utilize the best fabrics to lock in & prevent your fur-baby from tracking their mess everywhere.
How Multi-Vitamin Supplements Can Help With Male Marking.
Talking about training reminded us to mention our Multi-Vitamin soft chews! Why not give your pup a treat that is healthy, and that they will want to eat? When training your pup where not to mark, use our multi-vitamins as a reward. *Note: dosage on the packaging.
Why Pet Parents® Multi-Vitamin SoftSupps®?
- Why give your pup something if they won’t eat it? We want it to taste great so our multi- vitamin leads with meats and veggies like chicken, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and carrots.
