iblishaitan I walk my friends pitbull every chance i can get, cause the poor thing is in the crate at night and then in a small backyard all day, regardless of weather.
I am amazed he has survived this winter.

Anyways when I take him out, ofcourse he pulls on the leash and marks almost every thing, he is too strong for me, so I just try to get him some air and let him stretch his feet, but he pees on 50 things like you said.

Lilie When I travel with my male dog, I put him on a longer lead. I stand in one position and give him 15 minutes (give or take) within that radius to do his business. I don't walk him around and give him the opportunity to leave messages every where.

At the hotel, I repeat the same thing. If I need to give him some exercise, I'll use the short lead and not allow him to become the post man, leaving messages on anything that is standing.

Pee marking versus bladder draining

Wasn't sure how to title this thread, but I'm looking for advice. When we are home I let Gunnar in the yard for 5 minutes to an hour a few times a day. He manages his bladder on his own. But when I take him on the road with me (I'm a traveling salesman) I need to let him relieve himself but instead he'd rather pee a bit on every upright thing he can find.

For example, we drove all day, then went to a big park for an evening walk. Gunnar must have peed 50 times in the course of our hour walk. Whatever volume that is.

The next day I walked him around the hotel, commanded "go potty" and he will only sprinkle. I'm sure there is more pee in there but he won't drain his bladder. Can I train him to drain his bladder? If so, how?
