� � � � My  dog  has been house broken. However he still has a
number of “accidents”.  He lifts his leg and pees in certain
areas. Why does he do this? Please help!
A dog has an  instinctive trait of wanting  to mark his territory. 
This is what instigates him to  lift his leg  and squirt urine in
areas that he considers to be his territory. 
In order to  prevent him from repeating  this rather disgusting
habit is to clean up the area he has messed up with an organic
cleanser that leaves absolutely no remnants of smell. If even a
little bit of smell remains, he is likely  to be tempted to urinate
there again. 
Do not use ammonia or bleach  to clean  the area, as they both
smell strongly  of dog urine. An  old school of thought
recommends the use of garlic paste in such areas as the smell
of garlic over powers any other smells. 
You must continue to take him out to do his business at regular
intervals.  Praise him when  he does his business.  You  can
reward him with  treats too. Whenever he has misbehaved you 
can express your displeasure by shutting him up in his crate forsome time. 
Of course if you  catch  him urinating  inside,  be very  firm in 
letting  him know that you  are not at all happy  with  his
behavior. If you have prevented him from urinating indoors be
sure to  put him on  his leash  and  take him out immediately.
Your firm attitude in handling his misdemeanors will soon put
an end to his untoward behavior. Your Lab is afamily dog and
he wants to be an integral part of your family!

You  most probably  think  that a Labrador Retriever ought to  be
from Labrador,  right? Well that is not so! Labs are believed  to 
have originated  from Newfoundland.  Labrador is situated 
northwest of Newfoundland  so  the proximity  of Labrador to Newfoundland might have something to do with the name!
The fishermen  of Newfoundland  extensively  used  this breed 
because the fishing boats could not come too close to the shore and 
this dog swam out into the icy cold water and dragged the nets full
of fish back to the men on the shore. 
So  as fishermen  used  these dogs to  retrieve their catch, they 
acquired  the name“retriever.” That is why  these dogs are strong 
swimmers. They are not too  large to be accommodated on fishing 
boats either.
On shore, these dogs made excellent companions to hunters. They 
were used to retrieve prey  that the English hunters brought down!
These Englishmen inhabited the St. John’s area of Newfoundland.
These hunters were responsible for bringing  the dogsto England 
through  the Poole Harbor of Dorset, which was the center of the
fishing trade of Newfoundland.  
These are some of the reasons that you might find  the Labrador
Retriever being also referred to by the following names too!

1 Black Water Dog  
2 English Labrador
3 English Retriever
4 Labrador Dog  
5 Lesser Labrador
