Hello,
My rott pup is 11 months old, and recently he’s been complaining every time he sees or senses a female dog. Has never had this behavior before. Some smells he marks over, others he complains about, it’s starting to get annoying, was wondering what would be the best way to stop him from doing this?

Your pup is growing up, and his hormones are kicking in. Training will be the only thing to help. Teach him the "leave it" command. Don't allow him to start marking, or that becomes a very bad habit, and he will be peeing on every little smell. Is he enrolled in obedience classes? That's a great way for him to be around other dogs and be learning to ignore dogs around him. When he's older he can be neutered, but I would wait till he is 18 + months or so.
