HELP WITH MALE LAB


Recommended Posts

I have a question for any owners of male dogs. I have a 13 month old non-neutered Choc Lab. He stays in an outdoor 6x12 kennel with a wooden dog house located inside the kennel. At 11 months he started doing the marking his territory thing on the trees in our yard and along his walking trail. Now at 13 months he has started to mark the side of his dog house. Up to this time he has not pee'd in his kennel at all. He's not going a lot either, just enough to leave his scent.

Is there any way of breaking him of this? I've swatted him a couple times for doing it and he stops for a few days but just when you think he has learned, there he goes and marks the house again. The bad thing I can see about punishing him is that I never catch him in the act. He seems to know he has done something wrong as he's shy when I come and see he has pee'd. Any help would be appreciated as this is driving me nuts. Or is it just something I'm going to have to put up with? Thanks.

Probably going to have to live with it. He's not relieving himself...he's doing just as you discribed, marking his territory. If you neuter them before the age of 12 months, generally speaking that will diminish their desire to mark their territory. If you have a male that is being bred, they generally mark even more than intact males that aren't being bred. It's just nature taking it's course and if you are seeing him becoming timid when he sees you coming, back-off on him a little or other problems may develop. Good luck! Ken

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
