I have a fox terrier who has a bad habit of marking his territory on our furniture even though he has been outside for many daily walks. It is impossible to clean up his damage and to catch him in the act of doing it. When we are out of the area, he tends to do his thing. I am lost for ideas as to how to stop him from doing this. I suggested using red pepper on the area involved as an attempt to stop him, but my wife says not to do this. He loves to lay down on my lap while I am reading or lay down on our bed while I am watching television there. He will lay down on his bed in the front room at times. I have never been able to catch him doing his thing. He is too sneaky for this. Has anybody any suggestions as to what to do to stop him from doing any furthur damage to our furniture? I am open to suggestions.
