    I have a 5 year old Pitt/terrier mix, maybe with some Boxer, not sure as he was a rescue, when I let him out to pee, he will pee/mark? at least a dozen spots and he’ll do the same spot a couple times, he grew up with a female shepherd, could he be covering her scent or is there another reason he pees 8-12 times each time he goes out?

    Hi Janelle, has the peeing often new or or
    possibly coincidental it is just after the other
    dog is now not around? I am asking
    because it could be a bladder infection
    or something related to that. Does he want
    to go out more often out of his norm? That
    is the only thing I can think of. I am familiar
    with that breed either to help more. I just
    know my Pomeranian female would pee in
    one outing outside, and want out more. She
    had a bladder infection, and if it is left or
    people are unaware as my 1st time
    experience. Blood will eventually come out,
    and it was pretty scary. It is a simple urine
    test and pill form medication that clears
    pretty fast. Then a followup test a couple
    weeks after.

    Janell it’s just the dogs personality. I have two Chihuahuas’ both females. One will sniff and pee every few steps throughout the whole walk. My other just does her business once and NEVER pees again . My little pea head will also wait for the other to wee wee patiently behind her and then lift her little back legs and wee wee OVER the other ones pee. lol Here’s an insightful article on why dogs mark.
