Should I pee on my dog to show dominance?
Your dog feels the need to assert his dominance or ease his anxiety by laying out his boundaries.
He does this by depositing small amounts of urine on anything he feels belongs to him—the furniture, the walls, your socks, etc.
Urine-marking is most often associated with male dogs, but females may do it, too..
What can I use to stop my dog from peeing in the house?
Sometimes spraying your dog with water when they begin peeing in the house will discourage them from this behavior. The water is unpleasant but doesn’t hurt them or browbeat them. The shock should stop their urination long enough to get them outside to finish. Then, of course, you must praise them for going outdoors.
How do you train a dog to tell you it has to pee?
If this sounds like your dog, you can teach her that bell ringing is only about potty breaks. When she rings the bell to go out, praise her, clip on her leash and take her directly to the place where you’d like her to eliminate. Don’t play with her. Just give her three to five minutes to urinate or defecate.
Do dogs pee out of spite?

How do you know if your dog thinks you’re the Alpha?
Your dog growls at you if you get near his toys or food. This should never be allowed.

Your dog stares into your eyes and does not turn away.
Why is my dog starting to pee in the house?
