Checking his work.
Havoc is an 19 month old neutered male. Right before his neuter, he had started lifting his leg. He had a pretty extensive surgery as he was cryptorchid and his retained teste was elusive. He didn't lift his leg for quite a while after surgery.
In the past few months he has started marking again. Due to my husband's illness, we walk the same territory every day. Havs lifts his leg, walks a few steps , runs back and checks his work (smells his own urine) and kicks dirt. He's very happy when he does this but I've never seen this behavior before. Does it mean anything? Is it just goofy?
He is the biggest dog in the hood, and is walked more frequently than most dogs. I do think that most of our park is "his." He has never marked inside or in classes but he will do the same marking and checking on new trails.
