Marking on Pablo
I didn't know how else to title this thread. I am a little confused as to why any dog would literally mark another dog? In Pablo's case, I'm starting to believe it's his shampoo/conditioner smell.
The first time this happened was on our apartment complex where he met a bigger dog. He let that dog sniff him and low and behold that dumb a$$ lifts his leg and starts peeing on my poor freshly bathed dude. I quickly jerked Pablo's leash and saved him from the golden shower.
Yesterday, I took him to the dog park where a medium size dog sniffed him and since I saw it coming I was able to quickly push down on his leg and say 'EH' which deviated the pee away from Pablo.
In both cases the owners were stunned (or so they pretended) and in both cases it was 1 day after I bathed Pablo.
Pablo is a strong Beta in my eyes. He's usually very calm in approaching other dogs and gives them the chance to sniff him in peace without being submissive. Any ideas?
BTW, feel free to laugh, cause I know it's funny. But I feel bad for him, he's just trying to be nice and they just pee on him, LOL.
