Default Started to pee on the deck, how to get him to stop?

We shovel off a pathway for Ralph to get from the stairs off the deck and in to the yard. Well, I guess with all the snow, where we've made a pathway we've also made snow banks on the deck. I just noticed yesterday that Ralph has been peeing on the deck! Looks like on the snow bank, but then even where the snow is flat! It just blew me away, he didnt do this last year! I don't want him to think he's allowed to pee on the deck, but I also don't want to scold him for peeing outside. How can I get him to stop peeing on my deck??? Damn teenage Poodle!

Maybe you need to walk him down to the grassy area, or at least where the grass is hiding under the snow. Murphy did that as well when the deck was covered. He's stopped since we've had a brief thaw. I'm sure he will do it again when it's covered with the next snow fall! Good luck!

my dogs have done that in winter when snow covers the deck - but they never did it when snow was gone. You will have to walk him down - bummer!

When you figure it out let me know... My pups will pee into the pool in the summer.

I'm with Pamela... My dogs sometimes do that in the winter (if the deck is covered in snow or ice) but have never done that when its just wood (ie not winter)...

Same situation here. When we had lots of snow. Cosi decided he did not want to walk down the stairs and he peed on the snow on the deck. It has thawed and now he treks down the stairs.

It is a real catch 22 situation you don't want to scold him for going outside but you don' t want the deck to smell of urine. Unfortunately I think you have to step out on the deck and command him to go down the steps if you don't want him peeing on the deck. And I would think if you have that much snow you probably do not feel like stepping outside in frosty weather every time you let him out to go.

This is not fun in bad weather, but the only way I can ensure my dog doesn't get lazy and pee on the patio is if I go out there with him to the "correct spot", especially in rain/snow/cold.
