    Cute pup but not sure waiting on the other nut to drop is necessary to neutering Elliot. Is he peeing out of excitement? If so practicing calm behavior around him might be a good first step with lots of outside time. Pointers are high-energy dogs so will not be easy. I love pointers as I was raised with them. These days I have calmer dogs however.

    The holistic vet doc told me she could neuter him but we'd have to take him back again once his other testicle decided to come out of hibernation.

    We definitely run him and play hard with him. I think it might deal with our older dog (small m unsterlander; "Chloe"). He is very possessive of me which is awesome because I wish my wife was that way . The peeing in the house is more of marking. The few times that they are big puddles then I don't get upset because we should have let him out sooner. We tried to keep the old dog's water bowl isolated from him since obviously any puppy is going to continue to drink and therefore continue to pee like a racehorse . I guess I'll just wait to see what happens after he gets neutered. If that doesn't work then I'll get the bag of 100 miniature balloons and put them over his ding-dang then change it out when half full. Shoot, I might be onto something

    Hi Elliot,

    I assume you are praising and treating him every time he urinates outside? Are you crate training him, plans for obedience training, and how old is he now?

    Elliot, He's just a baby! How long were you able to hold if for when you were his age? BTW, he looks a little lean on the lean side in that middle pic. Is he eating all his groceries?

    Yep, praising (big celebration... sometimes my neighbors hear and start laughing) and treats.

    Liz, I'm just used to girl dogs I guess ( I always wanted a boy dog but always end up with a girl dog because of mother or wife). Girl dogs usually learn to pee and poop outside at the same time. But the vet warned me that he would learn to poop outside before peeing outside but I'm just hung up on the small peeing because I swear it's marking types of pee and not " long road trip but I refused to pee until the last possible minute"-pee. I was just seeing if anyone had any tricks of the trade out there. I'm not spazzing out too much. I do get a little frustrated when I wash his pillow ( not the bedding in his crate), or the mat just inside the back door, or the carpet on the stairs and see little pees after he comes in from taking a huge pee.
