I finally found a pet behaviorist. He will probably never stop marking because he was neutered too late, and the hormone driven urge to mark was already a habit, but the peeing and messing is stress related, and can be controlled He is back in his crate at night, and when I shop or work in the yard he goes in the crate instead of loose,(even with the belly band on), any time he is in the house out of my sight or control. No more kibble is to be left down in the bowl. He has to know that anything he gets comes from me. I already give the dogs wet meals at specific times so I am ok there. She gave lots more suggestions, so I am hopeful.If he will never stop marking he may have to wear the belly band most of the time, but if I can stop all the peeing and pooping I will be happy. I am beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
