I have a male English Bulldog that I rescued from a family at one year old. He is now 3 years old. He has been nuetered for 2 years. He has about 5 places that he sneaks to and urinates. He will do this even after he has just been outside. It is ruining my wood floors. Any suggestions?

Have you completely deodorized the places where he has been going? If there is any scent left, he will continue to mark there.

As jstroizer said deodorization with an animal waste specific deodorizer is important. Also try putting aluminum foil over the spots as dogs really don't like defecating or urinating on this surface. This can break the habit of using particular spots. Also remember to take your dog out to the toilet regularly. Regular exercise off the property can also improve toileting behaviors as dogs tend to use up as much waste as possible marking outside.

Let me know if you find this works for your dog and if not we can try other things.

Hi there, I have the same problem with my 6 year old Bichon Frise. He is fixed and everything and even if he just went out, sometimes he marks around the house. The vet said to test him for urinary track infections or for any other disease, but he doesn't have anything, he is just one of those dogs who has a problem with marking around the house! I just keep an eye on him and when I am not home I put a little diaper on him. (he hates the diaper but that is the only solution!)
I hope this helps
