Hi Nicky, my first question is - are the dogs sterilized? If not there will be a lot more tendancy for this behaviour to happen and the only way to stop it is for the dogs to be sterilized.
If they are sterilized, I would suggest starting toilet training from scratch (put a link to an article below) and at the same time really cleaning all surfaces marked with a solution of 1/3 white vinegar to 2/3 water and cleaning several times. When the areas are cleaned then apply pure citronella oil to the soiled areas. This normally help. Thanks Scotty
