Is my female marking?

I have an intact female that will be 2 in November. She sometimes pees in the house. The problem is where she pees. On the sofa, in her crate, on my other dogs pillow, on her pillow, etc. essentially everywhere she goes and sleeps. My breeder said she is marking her territory because I have another dog (old spayed female collie). My question. When I have her spayed will this stop? She is being bred now and I plan on spraying her after this litter. Thank you

Doggie experts are inconsistent in their conclusion regarding whether neutering causes marking to stop, I believe that the majority thinks marking will lessen afterwards. I would be sure she did not see me clean up her mistakes and try potty training all over. Good luck.

neutering doesn't stop marking. Hard to say whether this is marking or just poor house training.
