    Default 7 month male marking terr. In house

    Polar has started marking spots in the house were our 14 yr old lab sleeps, which unfortunatly is in our bedroom. Is tbere any way to stop this behavior? He isn't neutered yet, would that even help?
    Thanks!

    Definitely neuter him! (if you are not going to breed him) You need to get the testosterone in check. His aggressive tendancies will start here as well. He is doing the natural "male" thing and unless you take away the "source" of his "urges", he will continue to do it. Good luck!

    I also strongly advocate neutering. Have you ever had to restrain a male dog while a female one was nearby and in heat? Whew! There also certain health benefits as well, including the reduced risk of testicular and prostate conditions that may occur.
