1 House Soiling

Among bad dog habits soiling can also be a result of illness. There are many dogs that will urinate or poo in the bathroom of a home or an area allotted to them. However this needs to be cultivated from a young age. When a dog begins soiling different parts of the home, it could be due to stress, anxiety, or even a medical condition. Male dogs will usually resort to such a habit as a sign of territorial behavior. When you notice such a problem you should consult a vet to rule out medical issues. Never rebuke your dog or beat him or rub his nose in his urine as recommended by some, not only is that cruelty it does not teach a dog a thing because soiling is a animal trait and you need to look at it from n animals perspective and narrow down the reasons for the behavior.
