Here is the story... I have an Alaskan Malamute. He is a huge dog. My wife and I got him as a puppy a few months after we were first married. That was over 10 years ago. The life expectancy of a malamute is 10-12 years. So he is an old dog. He has always been a very good dog. He was easy to train. We consider him to be our first child. He is an inside dog, and spends 99% of his time on the main floor of the house where our living room is. He likes to be with us. He goes into the basement a couple of times a day for food and water. For the last several months, he has developed a very annoying habit. He will pee on the basement floor multiple times a day. It is not due to him being left alone too long. Most of the time he does it in the evening when we are home. He still goes out side to relieve himself, but sometimes he will do his thing outside, then come in and go directly down to the basement and pee more on the floor. When he goes, it is like a lake! We have had him checked by the vet, and they say he is in great health especially for his age. No kidney problems or anything. We cannot get him to stop, but cleaning up lakes of pee every day is getting tiresome. We do have another dog. He has been here for 5 years. They get along, and the younger dog is very submissive. The malamute is definately the alpha. We have just been having this problem for the last 6 months or so. We have tried everything, even moving the food to other rooms. They have separate food/water dishes. It does not matter if they are in the same room, or in different rooms. I need some ideas on how to get him to stop.
