Territory Marking

I recieved an email today thru my BD4U site. It was from a person who asked my thoughts on Territory Marking.

This person was told that if he allowed other dogs to "mark" his yard, it would lead to a dog fight because it was the visiting dog trying to clam ownership of his dog's yard. This advice included the feeling that everytime his dog "re-marked" the spot it would make the visiting dog(s) become more dominate which would lead to a fight!!!

I guess it might be possible if you had an "aggressive" or "out of control" dog, but in 35+ years i have never seen it!!!

Have any of you ever seen one dog attack another dog for marking over a spot?
