    My husband got a pbp about 6 months ago, I got him house broke, semi-harness trained (he hates putting it on/taking it off), walks with a leash, and is crate training. Now all of the sudden he his peeing on my dogs... It doesn't matter where they are laying down, he acts like he is going to play with them and then he stops and pees on them (male and female dogs)... I'm loosing it, our dogs have been really great with him but now they are starting to get mad. How do I make him stop, it has been a couple of weeks. Picking him up, telling him no, and putting him outside or away from the dogs is not working!!

    Well, I don't know too many pbp behaviorists in a companion animal sense, but try contacting your local Ag extension agent and ask for a person that specializes in swine production.
    Is he neutered?

    No he's not neutered yet. I am hoping that isn't the problem, if it is then he will get fixed but I prefer leaving my animals the way they were born.

    If you want a pot belly for a pet you had better neuter him ASAP. The peeing on the dogs is bad enough but as he matures his hormones are going to cause him to come up with some behaviors that are even worse.

    I'm starting to notice.... He has been trying to pee on me now after I put this up, he has an appointment to be neutered, I was hoping that it was just a bad behavior that we could work threw.... Thank you for your help!!

    Neutering will help prevent a lot of bad behaviors, and may help stop this one as well. You may have to separate him from the dogs if it persists and go back to square one of potty training.

    It could be a lot of things but it's difficult to know without taking a look at him. I would definitely give the vet a call.
