  • Watch out for warning signs.
  • Noise makers and spray.
  • Take him for a walk more frequently than usual.
  • Buy a Washable Dog Belly Band (from Amazon).
  • Use dog repellent.

Why Does My Dog Pee On the Christmas Tree?


So, you got a Christmas tree and your dog peed on it. Are you wondering why? Well, basically what you have done is brought in his own pee pole and decorated it nicely. You took the extra work out of doing his business and now, since it is in his living room, no other dog will be able to mark that Christmas tree but him. I’m sure he appreciated it. But you didn’t, right? Okay, so let’s talk about ways to make sure your dog does not pee on your Christmas tree again.

Watch Out for Warning Signs

Obviously, this is the easiest way, but it takes a lot of time. As Dogster says, dogs give away pre-indicator behaviors that you can watch for. Lowering their noses, sniffing and scratching around while going in circles usually indicates they are preparing to do their business. So, watching for them will help you to avoid disasters.

Using Dog Training Sound Devices or a Water Spray

This is my own little idea. Dogs are very sensitive to sounds and there are some that they deeply dislike. My dog Yogi hated newspapers and styrofoam and whenever he was doing something, he shouldn’t have, I would grab one and just the sound of it made him stop immediately. So, whenever your dog looks like he is going to approach the tree, pick one of them up and shake it at him. He’ll get the hint. Whistles also work well.

Another idea which is very simple. Get a spray bottle and fill it with water. Whenever your dog approaches the tree, spray him. But please, remember to only use water. 

Take Him For a Walk More Often

Much more often. According to Dr. Kristy Conn from Cesar’s Way, it’s good idea to let your dog pee at least 3~5 times a day. I must agree with her. If you were a dog and your owner brought in a big tree and decorated it nicely for you, wouldn’t you feel obliged to pee? I know I would.

Therefore, if you have the time, it might be worth it to increase the number of outings by at least three times a day.

Consider a Dog Belly Band or Diaper

Buy a Washable Dog Belly Band (you can find them on Amazon).

These are great and keep you and the dog happy. You can get them is any size. They are washable which makes them both more economical and environmentally friendlier than disposable diapers. They are super absorbent, tree friendly and he gets to feel like he owns the tree. Well, that is until he sniffs it and finds it smell free.

Use a Dog Repellent To Keep Her from Peeing on the Christmas Tree

This may be the best way because dogs are very sensitive to smell. And you can find repellent at your local supermarket. According to Howstuffworks citrus, cayenne pepper, vinegar and ammonia are all worthy repellents which are completely safe for your dog and the environment.

  • Dip coffee filters in ammonia, lemon juice or vinegar and letting them dry. After drying, cut them up into strips and place them neatly about the Christmas Tree. The smell should be enough to keep him at bay.
  • Place cayenne pepper in potpourri in bowls around the tree.
  • Cut slices of citrus fruit up and place them in small plates around the tree.
  • Benebone recommends taking a 1 ½ cup of water and mixing it with 2 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar and 20 drops of orange or citrus scented essential oils and spraying it around the tree.
  • Lambert Kay Boundary Dog Repellent (You can find it on Amazon by clicking here). All you need to do is spray this around the Christmas tree every 24 hours and your dog will absolutely stay clear of it. It comes in a 22 ounce bottle and is only $10.69.

Use a Dog Gate For Your Christmas Tree

I know this sounds like a terrible idea, but Shallylu (Found on Amazon) has an awesome gate that you can place around the base of your tree that will not only protect your tree, but is decorative as well. For only $25.95, you can make sure  your dog doesn’t pee on your beautiful Christmas tree. Now, he might be inclined to do so on the gate, but that’s a lot easier to clean than the tree.

Try Crating Your Dog

When you cannot keep a watchful eye on your dog, it may be a good idea to crate him, especially if you have a mischievous dog who is prone to peeing in the wrong places. Now, this doesn’t mean to stick your dog in a crate for very long periods. Only when you can’t keep an eye on him.

Put Your Christmas Tree on a Table

If your tree was not picked out by Clark Griswold or you have a small enough tree, you could put it on a small table. This Vasagle low height table on Amazon is stable, sturdy and easy to put together.  

Here is a very festive idea I found on Pinterest. A small wooden slay would be very festive and out your tree out of range of being peed on.

Tell Your Dog No!

Yes, Nancy Regan is back. Whenever your dog approaches the tree, Just say, “No” in a very commanding voice. When he walks away from the tree, give him a treat or a good rub down. Dogs respect boundaries. If he knows that you’re not happy with him near the Christmas tree, he is most likely to respect that, especially if treats or rub downs are involved.  

The Bottom Line on What to Do If Your Dog is Peeing on Your Christmas Tree

And there you have it. One of these or a combination of them should be all that you need to prevent your dog from peeing on your Christmas tree. And remember it is important to be consistent. One thing dogs learn from is consistency and whatever confuses them just leads to disaster, so keep it consistent.

Stop Your Dog From Peeing on the Christmas Tree

Has your dog ever peed on the Christmas tree?

I was horrified to hear my dog Ace lifted his leg on one of my parents’ indoor plants one summer. Not the Christmas tree but almost as bad!

I know a lot of dogs get confused when there’s suddenly a Christmas tree in the house, especially if it’s a real tree vs. a fake tree.

Imagine all those smells!

So how can you stop a dog from peeing on the Christmas tree or at least prevent the behavior? Let me know your ideas and tips in the comments. I’ll share my ideas below.

How to stop your dog from peeing on the Christmas tree – 12 tips

Here are my 12 tips to stop your dog from peeing on the Christmas tree.

1. Take your dog out for lots of potty breaks to prevent peeing on the Christmas tree.

Unfortunately, there is no dog proof Christmas tree. So, to decrease your dog’s likelihood of peeing on the tree, make sure to take him out for potty breaks more often than usual. Ideally, take him out for a long walk right before you set up the tree.

2. Don’t make any assumptions.

I took my dog Remy to our office last December and he peed on the office Christmas tree! I never thought he would so something like that. But, he did! So embarrassing!

So .. don’t make assumptions. Here are some other examples:

If your dog is a girl, she could still try to mark the tree. Or she might pee next to the Christmas tree or right under the tree!

If your dog is neutered, he could still try to mark the tree. Even if he’s normally potty trained, he could still get confused and pee on the tree!

If your dog did not pee on the tree last year, that doesn’t mean he won’t do it this year. He might be more territorial this year or more confident or maybe this year’s tree has more smells on it. Who knows.

Also, just because your dog does not pee on YOUR Christmas tree, it does not guarantee he will not pee on a friend or relative’s Christmas tree!

Also see my post: Stop your dog from marking in the house.

3. Don’t trust newly adopted dogs or visiting dogs.

Even if you’re told your newly adopted dog is 99 percent potty trained, he could still try to mark the tree. Trust me. Just because a dog is potty trained doesn’t mean he’ll understand the tree is off limits.

And as I hinted to earlier, make sure to supervise your dog or keep him leashed if you visit a friend or relative’s house during the holidays.

The key is to supervise the dog at all times until you’re sure he’s going to leave the tree alone. Use a kennel/crate when you can’t supervise. You may need to go back to dog potty training 101 as in supervising constantly, preventing mistakes and rewarding with treats for going potty outside.

4. Keep your dog leashed to prevent marking the Christmas tree.

Not necessarily all the time, but at least when you first set up the tree or when you first arrive at a friend’s house if your friend has a tree up. This is a good idea when you bring your dog into any new home anyway.

The point of the leash is to keep your dog in your sight at all times. That way there’s no sneaking off and casually lifting a leg on the tree!

I would keep your dog on a leash for the first 30 minutes and then maybe walk by the tree with him a few times so you feel confident he’s not going to try to mark the tree. You should still keep a close eye on him if you do decide to let him off leash.

5. Use a belly band if your male dog keeps marking the Christmas tree.

A dog “belly band” fits around a male dog’s belly so if he tries to mark in the house, the belly band catches the urine. It’s sort of like a diaper! You would want to continue using other training methods in addition to this because the belly band doesn’t actually teach him not to mark. It’s just there to save your tree (or your furniture, carpets, etc.)

For females that mark, you can use actual dog diapers. These are available at quite a few pet stores for when females go into heat. Amazon also sells a variety of disposable dog diapers and male wraps.

I realize dog diapers and belly bands are awkward and embarrassing but they are there as an option if you’re running into a pretty frustrating issue with your dog or perhaps a foster dog.

6. Kennel/crate your dog when you can’t supervise.

This is a good idea around the holidays anyway because there are so many tempting packages, snacks and decorations. If you don’t have a kennel, then leave your dog in a bedroom or other area that is dog proof. Pet gates also come in handy during this time.

7. Use a Pet Corrector.

If your dog seems too interested in the tree and is not responding to a firm “no,” you could try distracting him with a simple product called the Pet Corrector. This blasts compressed air to startle the dog. Then you would praise him for moving away from the tree.

8. Use Nature’s Miracle Pet Repellent

Nature’s Miracle Pet Block Repellent spray is a spray formulated to keep pets away from a certain area. Try spraying it around your tree to keep your dog away.

9. Create an invisible boundary around the tree.

Dogs do respect boundaries if they’re given clear boundaries to begin with. If you decide a small area around the tree is off limits to your dog, simply tell him “no” or “leave it” when he approaches that boundary.

Reward him with treats and praise for staying back. Also reward your dog when he’s lying calmly on his dog bed.

10. Use a fence or gate to block the Christmas tree.

If needed, you could consider putting the tree in a room that you’re able to block off from your dog with a baby gate.

Another option is to set up an ex-pen around the tree. Ridiculous, I know, but it’s been done!

This is basically like a “play pen” for dogs but instead of putting the dog in the pen you’re using the pen to keep the dog out!

This is not exactly my number one choice, but I know of more than one person who uses this option because of her foster dogs. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. Some people love to foster dogs and still want a nice tree!

11. Use the ‘Leave It’ command.

Leave it comes in handy for so many scenarios and this is one of them. As your dog approaches the tree, you would tell him “leave it” and then reward him for moving back.

12. Praise good behavior.

Don’t forget to praise your dog for good behavior using treats and affection. Praise him for lying quietly on his dog bed or on the couch or whatever spot he’s welcome. Good boy!

How to clean dog pee off the Christmas tree

If your dog has already peed on or around the tree, I recommend you do your best to clean the area with a strong enzymatic pet cleaner.  Nature’s Miracle makes a good one and then you can use their pet deterrent spray to hopefully keep your dog away from the tree in the future.

Obviously it’s hard to clean an actual tree, but if the urine got on the Christmas tree skirt or the floor or rug, these types of products should help.

Is it safe to have a real Christmas tree with dogs?

Yes. Thankfully, most dogs will not try to pee on or mark a Christmas tree, especially with supervision and training. This is true whether it’s a real tree or an artificial tree, so it’s really up to you which type of tree you prefer.

Real Christmas trees should not harm your dog or cat even if they try to bite it or eat it. The needles on some types of trees are a bit sharp, however!

My dog takes the Christmas tree ornaments!

It’s common for puppies or young dogs to try to play with the Christmas tree ornaments. Even some adult dogs might find certain ornaments hard to resist!

Supervision goes a long way, of course. You may also need to go back to crating your dog when you’re not home, even if your dog is normally loose when home alone.

Another option is to leave your dog in a room where she does not have access to the tree such as a bedroom.

My dog Ace was a very well behaved boy but he used to chew up the ball-shaped Christmas ornaments while I was at work! I guess he thought some of those were too closely related to his own toys!

I thought this was sort of cute, and thankfully he did not eat the ornaments.

If you do catch your dog playing with or chewing on an ornament, tell her “no” and then hand her one of her own favorite toys. You might even buy her a few new toys to have on hand during the holidays.

Some dogs will never touch an ornament again after being told “no” a few times. Other dogs are more challenging and just can’t seem to resist! So be patient.

You might need to have fewer ornaments on your Christmas tree this year or just stick with lights only. A year is a long time in a dog’s life, and often your dog will be more mature during the next holiday season.

If your dog is attracted to certain types of ornaments, such as ball shapes or ornaments that look like little stuffed animals, you may need to remove those ornaments or try hanging them higher. Every dog is different.

I’ve found that once a dog is over a year old or so they are actually pretty good about leaving ornaments alone.

If you have special ornaments that have been in the family for years or very fragile ornaments, you may want to hold off on those this season. 🙂

How to stop my dog from opening the Christmas presents!

There are a few types of Christmas presents that tend to really attract dogs:

Gifts of food. You should not keep food wrapped up under the tree, especially chocolates.

I realize you might not always know what’s in your own gifts, but if you receive gifts from others you could always ask if it’s food. Dogs can obviously smell the food and might try to open it up.

Dog toys or kids’ toys. Your dog might be able to sense that the gift is for her if she recognizes a dog-toy smell or sound. For example, maybe the gift smells like another toy similar to one she already has.

Or maybe the toy is from Petco and she is interested in those scents! If you wrap Christmas presents for your dog, you might need to keep them picked up until it’s time for her to open them. 🙂

My dog Remy and cat Scout

Gifts from friends who also have pets. Your dog might be extra interested in your Christmas gifts if they’re from friends or family who also have pets. Your pup will be extra interested in those other doggy smells!

Bows and ribbons. Some dogs will be extra tempted to play with a bow or ribbon attached to a gift.

Most dogs will learn to leave the presents alone if you simply tell him “no” and praise them for ignoring the gifts. However, you might need to crate your young dog or puppy when you’re not home.

I would also pick up any of the gifts mentioned above or any that seem to attract your dog for whatever reason.

How to stop a dog from peeing on the Christmas presents

If your dog seems interested in the Christmas presents, you can prevent him from chewing the presents or “marking” the presents by using some of the same tips mentioned earlier.

The main thing is to supervise your dog when you are home and to use a kennel or crate when you can’t supervise. At least, until he learns the rules.

Cats and Christmas trees – my cat keeps getting into the Christmas tree!

Aww, yes. Cats can be even worse than dogs sometimes!

If your cat keeps climbing on the tree or knocking off the ornaments, one simple solution is to put your cat in a separate room at night and when you’re not home. Make sure there is a litterbox and water for him, of course.

That option has worked well for me in the past. I actually have my cat’s litterbox and water bowl set up in my home office and that’s where he sleeps at night.

If needed, I can close the office door and have him stay comfortably in that room. He seems to like his “cat-partment” as we call it.

My cat Scout loves Christmas trees!

Beyond that, you can try a few tactics such as spraying your cat with a squirt bottle of water when you see her playing with the ornaments.

The Pet Corrector that I mentioned earlier can also work for kitties. This is a product that shoots a blast of compressed air to deter the dog or cat but will not harm them.

You may need to go without certain ornaments this year if your cat simply can’t leave them alone.

On the other hand, if your cat is not actually climbing the tree and is only batting at an ornament occasionally, there’s probably not a whole lot to worry about.

You could also try buying your cat some new toys to keep her interested in something other than the tree and gifts. But let’s be honest, cats really want to play with ribbon and boxes so maybe you should just try giving your cat a few extra boxes to play in!

How to wean a dog to mark and write everywhere? Why do dogs mark?

Have you ever rolled your eyes at your dog's habit of urinating on every stone and tree while walking? Perhaps this annoys or embarrasses you, especially when she marks something less appropriate. Is there anything you can do to influence this behavior, which is called "tagging the territory"?

Why does the dog mark?

If a dog marks his territory with a small amount of urine, it is probably nothing more than a way to greet his relatives who may be nearby. This is an absolutely normal instinctive way of communication of this species of animals - they have been doing this since long ago, when people began to track their behavior. In addition to the desire to communicate, there are several other reasons why they mark.

  • The dog has not been neutered. Males that have not been neutered are much more likely to mark their territory than neutered dogs. According to one study published in the journal Animal Behavior, "status dogs" mark their territory more often than dogs with low status. So maybe your favorite is the king of the hill! Although this problem is more common in males, unneutered females also sometimes mark their territory, especially before or during estrus.
  • The dog is overly excited. New and exciting social situations can make your pet want to mark everything in its field of vision. Reasons for over-tagging also include being around a dog in heat, or even just visiting a home or park where other animals have tagged before.
  • "Someone was here." A dog can consider his territory not only his house and yard, but also the route along which he walks, as well as other houses or parks where he often visits. If another dog has recently visited your pet's "territory", he may feel the need to mark that territory for self-affirmation.
  • The dog has health problems. You might think that your pet is marking territory, but the cause of increased urination may be due to medical reasons. Conditions that can cause frequent urination in dogs include urinary incontinence, urinary tract infections, and drug reactions. You should go to the veterinarian to rule out these problems before trying to wean the animal from marking.

It is also worth noting that some dogs urinate frequently for reasons unrelated to tagging, including conditions such as obedience urination and separation anxiety. Or is it just illiterate home training. Understanding the causes of a dog's behavior is a critical step to addressing related problems.

Can this be stopped?

Although dogs' habit of marking territory is a natural behavior inherited from their ancestors, in today's world you may be annoyed or embarrassed by such a habit. How can you wean a pet from this habit, or at least reduce his desire to mark? The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine offers several recommendations.

  • Find out why your dog is marking. For example, if you know that she is aiming every time she is very excited, this will help you to avoid nervous situations as much as possible. If you avoid factors that influence a dog's desire to mark, it will be easier for you to avoid these situations.
  • Suppression in the bud. The longer you leave your puppy for neutering or spaying, the more difficult it will be for you to wean him from the habit of marking in the future. Neutering a dog, especially as a puppy, will most likely help reduce the habit of marking - and may even prevent it.
  • Neuter or spay all other animals in the house. If hormonal changes occur in another dog, especially a female, even a neutered male can react to this and begin to mark frequently.
  • Get organized. Designate areas outside the home or on your walking trail where the dog will be allowed to tag. Train her to recognize these places by rewarding her when she marks them. Leash training can also reduce tagging. Keeping the animal on a shorter leash that prevents it from running from side to side, running up to every tree and post in sight, can help reduce its desire to mark.

Avoiding bad practices is just as important as keeping good ones. If you yell at your dog or otherwise punish him while he is marking, he will hide the behavior, making it even harder to stop it. You must remember that the habit of marking is a natural instinctive behavior of your pet, and although there are ways to minimize it, you should remember that most dog owners experience it. If you want your dog to tread less, just be patient with him, train him thoroughly, and he will begin to reward you with more enjoyable walks.

the best means and ways why a dog shits in an apartment

If you have problems with the fact that the dog copes with his needs in the apartment, of course, they must be solved. There are many means that are used so that the animal does not spoil anywhere. But where to start depends primarily on the age of the dog. How to wean her from writing and is it worth using a smell that scares away dogs if she is still a puppy? Toilet training (tray, disposable diaper, etc. ) is one of the main points in raising a small four-legged friend.

There are, of course, small breed dogs that are used to going to a special home toilet. However, the vast majority of adult dogs do it outside.

It's a completely different matter if your dog is not a puppy for a long time, but still shits in the apartment.

How to toilet train a puppy?

If the dog is still small, then, in general, there is no problem. The pet will learn to go outside during the first year of life.

Puppies can't stand it and that's why they "go" where they have time. It cannot be otherwise. Scolding a puppy can only make things worse. However, you can teach your baby to the toilet, which is discussed below.

To protect your apartment from the smell of dog urine and feces, it is advisable to set aside a small space on the floor covering that is easy to clean as a toilet. You can also cover an area of ​​the floor with an absorbent sheet. The most important rule - try not to punish the dog for "bad" behavior, but also do not give special praise for "good" behavior, even if it was done in a designated area, since, in the long run, the dog should get used to the street. As a rule, the puppy should not be taken out for walks until the first vaccinations, only for this reason he is temporarily taught to use the toilet indoors.

Use newspapers, special diapers for dogs. They should bring the puppy as often as possible: when he ate, he just woke up when you saw that he began to sniff the floor or spin in place. Praise for "correct" urination. Yelling at a dog if it has already committed a “bad” action is unacceptable, it will not understand what its fault is. Aggression can only frighten the puppy, he will simply begin to be afraid and avoid the owner.

If you see that the baby is starting to try on "wee-wee", throw the keys on the floor or clap your hands to distract him, then pick him up and immediately take him to the diaper or to the street. In the hands of the dog will try to be the most restrained, and if he is led on a leash, he can leave a “gift” right on the stairwell.

Why does an adult dog shit in the house?

To cope with a similar problem that manifests itself in an adult pet, you will have to work hard on it. To retrain such a dog, in addition to aids and smells that scare away dogs, a lot of patience and perseverance, as well as intensive training, will be required.

Before taking any action on animals, Miss Purity magazine recommends determining the reason why they began to behave this way. You may need to consult a veterinarian.

  1. Diseases of the genitourinary system are characterized by frequent urge to urinate, the dog in such a situation simply cannot tolerate a walk.
  2. Incontinence due to old age or disease. A sick pet should never be scolded. For a dog, stress is the fact that she has dirty the house. Be sure to show your pet to the veterinarian, buy dog ​​diapers or diapers.
  3. The animal did not develop a feeding and walking regime at the time. To eliminate the problem, the pet should be provided with regular meals and walks.
  4. The owner, who once showed aggression towards the dog, may lose authority in front of it. She can start to shit even when he starts talking to her loudly.
  5. And also the dog can write from boredom, that is, when they do not play with him, showing in such a simple way that he needs more attention. This can be a kind of protest, for example, if another pet has appeared in the house or even a child who has received more attention.

Interesting fact
Normally, a dog not only urinates on the street, but is also jealous of cleanliness in the house. Owners who have a dog and a cat or a cat may have noticed that the dog often cleans up after the "disobedient" cat. So the dog takes care of cleanliness and protects the furry friend from the righteous wrath of the owners.

How to wean a dog from shitting with repellent odors

Now in many veterinary pharmacies and pet stores there is a large assortment of special preparations that can be used as an aid to wean a dog from shitting in the wrong place, for example, on a carpet. These funds are quite effective, you just have to sprinkle all the places where the pet is addicted to doing this.

The smell will scare away the dog the next time he is about to do an unacceptable act. These funds are successfully used not only in apartments, but also in summer cottages, they help to save beds and lawns.

Very often, young dogs on a walk do not understand where they can go out of need, and where not. Unfortunately, the animal is not aware of the presence of beds, lawns, front gardens. The best way out is to spread frightening odors where the pet is not allowed to walk. However, many chemicals quickly evaporate or even pollute the soil. Therefore, the site recommends preparing such a remedy yourself from improvised ingredients, especially since there is nothing easier. It can be created on the basis of alcohol, vinegar, shag, citrus fruits, or even hot peppers - there are still a lot of smells in household use that scare away dogs.


The smell of medical alcohol lasts a long time, and dogs cannot stand it. Therefore, if she learns a similar aroma, then she will try to avoid these places for a long time. Lay swabs soaked in alcohol around the garden. In the apartment, it is enough to wipe the floor with water with the addition of a small amount of alcohol.

Hot pepper

Hot pepper is also able to protect the garden from pet attacks. A decoction of hot pepper irritates the mucous membrane, so dogs will avoid contact with this remedy. Spray the leaves of plants, beds with it, or, for example, wash the entrance with it if the animal has chosen it.


Acetic essence is also an excellent deterrent for dogs. Moisten cloths with this solution and lay them in “hot” places. The effect will not be long in coming - the dog is unlikely to want to be there, much less write.


The smell of citrus is more suitable for rooms, as it disappears faster, and it would be irrational to lay out the remains of oranges and lemons throughout the area. You will have to lubricate the surfaces with citrus juice daily, but, in the end, the dog will remember where the source of the frightening smell is and understand what they want from it.

Baking soda

Sprinkle baking soda all over the lawn. You can also use a soda solution and pour it over the place where the dog managed to mark the territory. It is unlikely that she will return there with bad intentions. In addition, baking soda protects plants from other diseases or insects. It neutralizes urine odor and repels other dogs.

How to get rid of unwanted pets?

It often happens that other people's pets enter the territory of owners who do not even have a dog.
