I have 2 dogs & 1 puppy! I have a 7 yr. female boxer, 3yr. female german shepherd & a 4month old female white german shepherd! The issue we are having is with the white shepherd, she goes potty outside, she goes to the door to let us know she wants out! But she piddles sometimes when you talk to her or if we have company she has done it on both sides of where the person is sitting! When she does this we let her know this is bad and to go potty outside and then we put her outside! We are at our wits end with it! Any advice would be great!! We have had her for a month now and she is getting worst about it! Please Help!! Thank you, Robin
it sounds like submissive piddles to me. Getting mad at her only makes it worse. She should probably meet people in a positive way and outside I like best. That way they don't piddle on the carpet. The hope is they grow out of it, but many do not.
Thank you for your feed back! We thought the same thing as you, but she will just look at you and squat! She'll do for no reason I mean nothing will be going on just watching tv. We thought maybe she's being territorial! Because she will also do it on the dog beds we have in our living room then lay at the other end of them afterwards! Thank you for your opinion & advice!
Have you checked her out at the vet to make sure she does'nt have a urinary tract unfection? Has she been Baer tested? It sounds like submissive peeing, but you never know.If it is submissive peeing, when people come in, ask them to ignore her and not to make a big fuss of her. Good luck with her.
What is Baer tested? It sounds a lot like submissive wetting, of course, the pup should be seen by a vet to rule out any health concerns. If it is submissive wetting, the advice about ignoring her is what I've heard. Also, some dogs like anykind of attention and they will do things that earn negative attention (yelling, fussing, etc.) because in their mind that is better than being ignored. You may want to increase the amount of play time you give her and individual one-on-one attention and see if that helps. good luck.
