Dogs are one of the most territorial animals you can ever think of. After taking over a territory or space, they will use different objects and methods to stave off trespassers.
Most at times, they will bark to wade off intruders attempting to trespass their territory. Aside barking, they may also use their urine and feces to mark off their acquired territory.
A dog will never defecate or urinate on a spot out of jealousy. If you wake one day to that your dog has urinated on your baby’s diaper, he certainly did not do it out of jealousy or hate. He did this because your baby’s cry threatens him, prompting him to do something about it as he wouldn’t want to lose his territory to your baby.
Should your pet urinate on your girlfriend’s bag, he certainly did not do this because he dislikes women. He simply saw the bag as an intruder and so decided to warn off the perceived intruder by marking his territory with urine.
A dog soils your home when he empties his bowels of urine. He may do this for varied reasons some of which include:
Dogs turn to urine-marking when they want to establish their territory. He isn’t comfortable seeing intruders play around his territory, and would do everything possible to keep trespassers off. He creates his territory by passing his urine on territories he feels belongs to him –walls, furniture, kitchen cabinet are good examples.
He uses a very little amount of urine when marking his territory, and most do this on vertical surfaces.
