Australian Shepherd Peeing (Marking) The Couch And Bed
Flora loves her kitty
Our 7-year-old Australian Shepherd, Flora, is a great dog, friendly to all, protective, comes when she is called. She is fixed and is a super alpha female, still dominates the toys, pillows, my wife's leg.
Just one behavior problem though and I am not sure how to stop it. She pees on the couch, bed, any rug, or any clothing item left on the floor.
It's not a bathroom issue, she does not go in the house and lets us know when she wants out. It is some sort of marking behavior. The couch has scat mats (which she tests and if they are off it is open season).
It is not every day, she may go weeks without doing it. She is our second Aussie and the other one never did this.
If anyone has any insight I would appreciate it. Other than that she is a very good girl.
