Females marking

Post by Rahne » Sun Oct 23, 2011 8:53 pm

Do the other female tamaskan also mark?? It's so funny to see Konah lifting her back leg to mark a tree :lol:
If we walk together with males she will mark over their marks straight away. This past week she has been marking extremly, hope this is a sign of her coming into season soon. Does anyone else noticed their females marking just before a season?

Vixen always marks when she pees but especially before / during her season. :)

Raksha does this always. It's fairly common in CSWs.

Yeah Sasha does this big style when in season which she is now! Normally she prefers to do her "buisiness" in the garden but at the moment she is stopping every few metres and weeing and kicking up the earth with her back paws! :lol:

It took about half an hour to walk down the lane to the field which is normally a ten minute job :lol:

Luna doesn't (obviously because she's too young) - but we have noticed that when she has been given the opertunity, she has gone upstairs, into our bedroom and poo'd on the floor. This has happened 3 times now!! And it isn't like she couldn't get outside, our kitchen door is open all the time and if not she'll sit at the door for us to open it. We think it's her way of saying.....'I'm not allowed up here, MINE, this room is MINE!' lol We're going to install a stair gate soon just incase.

Mila hasn't come into season yet, and she doesn't mark. But she has much to say for herself, so I think she will start with it as soon as she is into season. I hope it doesn't happen to soon, I think my (castrated, but he doesn't seem to notice :lol: ) male will be going nuts... :roll:

And about Konah, fingers crossed that she is coming into season very soon!!

Not sure if i should have started a separate topic for males or not but:

Sam is 2 in 8 days and he has never marked... Never lifted his leg... He sniffs other dogs markings up a post or whatever and looks at me as if he is confused as to how exactly it got all the way up there :roll:
Is that normal? It seem's odd to me because i thought he was supposed to do things like that when he hit puberty from about 6 month onward...
It came up on one of he fb groups about age to neuter and marking and it hit me that he'd never done it, i've not thought about it till then...

that is a bit odd... normally it happens as an instinctual process.
Has he ever watched another male dog marking?

No, not really. I thought it was programmed in to know how to do it, maybe finding a role model will help :? (not that i's going to be easy, people don't like big dogs :( ).
Could his lack of dominance be a factor? I think not but it's my only sensible guess :oops: :lol:

I've seen my Buddy's sister Deedee do it which made me question if she was truly a female at one point. A she-coywolf at Kawartha Lake also does that as well. I think the whole sitting down thing only applies to us humans but not to dogs.

I was told by someone once that 20% of all females mark (Sølve sure does, even lifting leg a bit but not like Raska's - spelled wrong I know it I cannot check the spelling on the phone - it is not as high but it sure is there! Every one of our normal walks in her territorie she does it several times, I can even point out several locations where she will do it :shock: )
And 20% of all males does not mark.. I am not sure that those percentages are right at all but I do know it is pretty normal specially for males who are not dominant at all to not mark over other dogs markings..

Actually, I wish Max didn't do the whole "marking" thing. He'll be a year old next month and has been marking now for only a couple months. We went to my daughter's house several evening ago and her coat :roll: was hanging on a chair. Max commenced to walk up to the chair and lifted his leg :shock: . Fortunately, I grabbed him before it hit the coat. Is this considered normal :? Needless to say my daughter wasn't real happy with him ;)

He has never "marked" inside before (as far as I know), and the same dogs that were there come to our house all the time also so he is completely familiar with all their "smells."

Both my previous male dogs never marked or ever cocked their legs, always squatted! Tala lifts one of her legs slightly when she wee's.

Oh yay, he's normal :D i was worried it could have something to do with mental development (my not so good vet mentioned it) but then i thought about his lack of dominance...

Going by what Dottie said, i guess i should be great-full...

Watching other dogs seems to help in some cases. Kumho didn't start marking until we came back from Tamfest, where he had the opportunity to watch Zephyr hit the fence a couple of times. It was like a light went on. Now he has to pee on every upright thing and patch of brush a dog might have been near.

Last year I have seen a young male CSW mark his owner's leg:] I think he was just mocking her, not mentally retarded;D The owner was not quite as amused as all the onlookers... He did it with such a matter-of-fact expression, out of the blue!

...certainly nobody would take her away from him after that :twisted:

It reminds me I have another "pee shot" - when Raksha was in heat and we brought Shadow for the mating, I noticed that at one moment he lift his leg to mark her! Thankfully he only lifted his leg but didn't urinate;]

Image

She paid him back with interest though:

and

Didn't actually urinate either, I think they didn't have anything left after marking every bush around during the walk;]

you need to be there when he does.. it has to happen for you to unlearn it..

It's like trying to teach a non barking dog that it cannot bark.. if it only barks once then you have to do it then and there.. but if that is the only time it have happened.. it's simply not a barking dog..
if it happens more times then you will have to do as if he was doing anything else he could not do (that works on him, someone a scolding is what is needed, some it is a time-out etc. )
also.. sometimes.. shit just happens.. a smell is incredibly irresistible to the dog and he just marks.. if he have never done it before.. obviously he don't know other than instinctively that it is a no-no.

With Kovo (my old Husky/Mal mix who I was sharing with my house mate and one of my best friends whom he are living with now) he while I was with him marked twice inside.. 1 time it was at my friends parents house, just after we got him. They have another male (though he was early neutered he was still a competition for dominance) and while establishing dominance between the two he marked a piece of furniture.. we of course scolded him at once (at this time he was 5 years old and was from a bad rescue situation so he had had very little training if any at all). The second time we was at a roleplaying clubhouse (like a clubhouse for gamers :lol: ) and they had "inherited" an old sofa and he went to sniff and then marked that.. we of course scolded him this time too.. and I suppose there was some smell of dog on there because he would at this time not else do something like that inside..
