Litter Male Mates, One Is Starting To Pee In The House

by Sandy
(Colorado)


We have two male Aussies 5 months old (not yet neutered) and they are litter mates. We have two issues...

1. One has started to go backwards in potty training and now does both in the house - not all the time but a lot—even if we were just out with him.

2. They fight a lot—it's play fighting but when they are out in the open they run at full speed and pretty much take each other out and wrestling. It looks and sounds horrible, but they cuddle when we get home. I know there is a time period this should calm down, but it seems to be getting elevated. When it gets really wild we split them and calm them.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
