What is the normal/average age for a male to start marking? Harley, my 5 year old neutered male, started at about 2 years old. Varick, my 18 month old intact male, started about a month ago.
At what age did your males begin marking?

Mine's been peeing on top of our other dog's urine ever since he was a wee baby. He goes, she goes, he goes again on hers. Every day, lol. I don't know if it's considered marking though.

Harry is 3yo and he still doesn't mark, he was neutered at 6 months.

if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.

Cafall doesn't mark but Finder (husky) does. Finder however is def the beta male in the situation so it all kinda boggles me.
