|I honestly, don't think that it has anything to do with the size of the dog, if all of your small dogs have marked in the side maybe it has something to do with the way you react to the behavior. Some dogs just like to mark alot more and some dogs don't mark at all. None of my male dogs, small or large have ever marked indoors. You need to interrupt the behavior, usually with a loud noise, take the pup to its proper potty place and let him finish, then give him lots of rewards. Also taking them for lots of walks can help with their marking, because they get out and get to mark over other dogs scents and therefore don't do it indoors.
Also if you haven't cleaned the area that has been marked before well enough your dog may mark again, because they can still smell the urine. Hope I helped a little.
