I am interested to get some feedback on having an entire male dog inside your house.
How hard was he to toilet train & how reliable is he?
Does he lift his leg on the furniture & do you find little accidents around the place?
As a breeder I have only ever had bitches as a house dog and never let my stud dogs in the house unsupervised.
I am now contemplating keeping a male puppy and would like to have his companionship.
He is just starting to get the hang of toileting outside.
10 month old entire male as well as a 14 year old entire male here, Stitch.
The older male is the perfect dog. ( I kid you not). Only place he ever marked was the brand new white sofa of my SIL when he was much younger. He had one poop accident as a puppy. No problems at all for all the years he lived with his desexed brother who crossed to The Bridge last year. When he did stud duties, he was almost bashful with the bitches.
This pair of Vizslas were so clean to live with right from puppyhood.
Puppy is a work in progress. He has had two incidents. That was because his Daddy misread his signals. Luckily he came in January so the nights were warm to do the training.
Hope this helps.
