I agree, my Heidi would do the same thing, usually while riding in the care

One thing I wouldn't do (check with your vet) is to have them expressed if he is having no other issues with them.

Sounds like it to me.

You could express the anal gland yourself or take him to the vet and have them do it for you.

I've done it. Not my favorite job.

Maybe play this while you do the deed.

This is gross. Smelly residue after GSD sees cat

I've been working on getting my GSD to accept my cat, and we've made progress to the point where the dog no longer lunges and barks at the cat but sits and sort of whimpers.

But when the dog gets up, there's often this little puddle of smelly residue on the floor where he was sitting. Its sort of clear but man does it stink! Smells like rotten fish.

What is this, is this some sort of excitement induced excretion of an anal scent gland? Is it some kind of anal leakage? How can I make the dog stop doing this when he sees the cat?
