Need advice on an embarrassing incident with Todd.
Ok...here goes. I took Todd over to my daughter and son-in-laws new house. My elderly parents were visiting from PA and wanted to see their new house. So I had Todd on a leash, and was helping my parents get in....and Todd went in the house and immediately lifted his leg on my daughters kitchen chair! I yelled to startle him, and immediately ran him outside where he walked around a bit and peed outside. We went back in and I still had him on his leash, was showing my parents the house and he lifted his leg on the bed in the guest room! Again, I yelled to startle him and again took him outside where he didn't pee. I took him back in on leash and he didn't do it again. But I never let him have a chance to do it, he was on leash with me the whole time we were inside.
Fast forward to my house a week later. My girlfriend and I were watching a race on TV on Sunday. She brought her older neutered black lab over. Her black lab was laying in my chair while we were watching the race. He got down and was laying on the floor, Todd got up went around to the back of the chair and lifted his leg and peed on the chair! Again, I was shocked! Todd has not had an accident indoors in months! And when he peed on the chair, it wasn't alot.
All of the places where he lifted his leg were cleaned with Nature's Miracle. He does not have a UTI. I took a urine sample into my vet's office and it was clear. My vet suggested neutering him and I advised him I was waiting until he is done growing.
Any advise on how I can put an end to this behavior? We do travel alot with the dogs in tow, and I really want to continue to be able to go places.
