Thought my 7 month old springer spaniel was house trained :(

by Aideen
(Donegal, Ireland)

I have a seven month old english springer spaniel called Charley, he's a great pup, full of energy and I thought very easily house trained.


Today our neighbours dog was in for a visit, she's a 2yr old husky,she was lying in the kitchen for a while and when she moved Charley went over lifted his leg and went to pee where she had been lying, I said "No" in my usual stern voice when I'm scolding him and he stopped and looked up at me with his "butter wouldn't melt" face.

Is this just a once off or do I need to start the house training all over again??

Hi there
This was just your pup marking his territory as another dog was in the house. He wanted to be sure that his scent replaced the scent of your neighbours dog. Nothing to worry about.
