Seriously? I have never seen another dog allowed to mark a dog's crate. That is disgusting. I am glad I show around these here civilized parts
LOL- I actually think your self-fulfilling prophesy is pretty funny, Page. I can see how it could happen the first time around cones in that manner- heck, they're usually even the right size for a nice dog pee! I can't wait to see what Monty does when he is faced with cones like that...and I don't even let my dogs pee/poop when on walks! They "pee on command" (when I tell them to or give them the "okay") if that makes any sense. It certainly lessens the "wandering around and around grassy areas at shows." LOL You just never know what will happen...they like to keep you on your toes, don't they?LOL- I've seen it happen a multitude of times to chairs (ringside or near a set-up), EZ Up canopies, crates, you-name-it. There are some kennel dogs around who simply don't get the training *not* to before being taken to their first couple of shows, or they aren't out enough to relieve themselves and *really* have to pee, and sometimes, breeders and people showing simply get caught up talking to someone they haven't seen in a long time while holding a dog and let their guard down or attention wander momentarily... But you know these Californians...not very civilized folks! LOL Honestly, I can definitely see how it happens. It doesn't make it very pleasant to clean up, though. Ugh. I've had to clean up my EZ Up several times because of this. :-XOriginally Posted by luvmydogz2much

hehehe, what a guy!
Remington didn't do that, but what he did the first time he saw the signs was to stand with his ruff up and bark at them while backing away!!!
Hopefully your boy has gotten that out of his system and now he can buckle down and get to work
Oh...I can imagine.Originally Posted by henrysmomThat is true. One of his 3 favorite bitches in the world was in the next ring watching him. He was probably just flexing his muscles for his honey! Thanks Melissa.Originally Posted by dostafflabsI have never seen a dog mark a wire crate, but I put my boys in soft crates ringside. Only slightly illegal, but so convenient. For some reason, dogs waiting ringside without their owner's full attention always try to lift a leg on it while walking by.Originally Posted by luvmydogz2muchMaybe I'll start working on that. ;DOriginally Posted by CaliforniaLabLover
I know someone who's boy is notorious for lifting his leg on other people.
I'd be mortified.

I met a girl at a trial last week who told me that her Newfie had peed on the judge his first time out
HA Kate!! No, he learned to target cones with his NOSE... He just liked Baloo and wanted to claim him as his.
HEE,hee, gotta laugh at that one... I had Page's boys for a while (when she broke her leg) and I was 'fixing' the fence so Dan couldn't get out. I was basicaly on all fours and Leo was smelling of me through the fence. I told him "Leo, if you pee on me...." About that time, what did he do??? Lifted his leg an PEED on me!!! It was by the fence post, but ooooh I was so ticked!!! ;D ;D ;D I can laugh at it now...I know someone who's boy is notorious for lifting his leg on other people.
I've only had one boy, and he is neutered, and took about 2 years to even start lifting his leg. Now he "marks" things outside, but only living things - I've never seen him mark an inanimant object. Weird huh? But even I had a little worry before we went into class for his second time last night that he might decide to pee on something :-\
