Peeing Cocker Spaniel - Why?
Cocker Spaniel Enjoying A Romp In The Woods
My American Cocker Mix has always had urinating issues in our home. He is a very eager dog and has been from the start. He's very attached to my husband and often gets 'between' us. I've heard dogs can't be jealous, but if they can, HE IS. If I argue with my husband, Diggy, (my dog) will start barking and clawing at me.
Our biggest problem is his peeing. But the thing I can't find an answer for is when he is peeing.
I stay home with him and my two boys all week. But when my husband comes home from work, Diggy is a different dog than when he is home with me. He starts getting into things, peeing trails around the house and becomes over-excited at the sight of Johnny, my husband.
He follows Johnny around the house and lays at the door when he goes to shower. He cries if he shuts the door behind him. His attachment seems to only be to Johnny. During the day, he holds his pee - he only goes out once or twice and just kind of lays around. Johnny will take him out immediately, and then 10 minutes later, he pees everywhere.
I think he has separation anxiety from Johnny, but only Johnny. He won't eat when he is away etc. But I don't understand why he pees when Johnny is around but is well behaved with me.
I think that about sums it up.
