Behavior

If your new housebroken puppy or rescued dog occasionally pees on the floor for no apparent reason, then you might have a dog with a submissive or excitement urination issue.

Either way, the situation can be remedied.
 

Why Do Dogs Urinate When Submissive?

Dogs that urinate submissively are trying to appease someone they see as “socially dominant” and to escape being punished. Submissive dogs pee when they’re greeted, when someone approaches, and when there’s a history of rough treatment or punishment after inappropriate peeing. This is common in rescued dogs and shy, anxious, and timid dogs.

When you’ve tried everything but your dog continues peeing when excited or submissive, you may need to take it to a licensed veterinary behavior specialist. Sometimes getting a professional point of view on the problem can help; a specialist may be able to see patterns in your puppy’s behavior that you’re missing.

If you suspect your pet is sick, call your vet immediately. For health-related questions, always consult your veterinarian, as they have examined your pet, know the pet’s health history, and can make the best recommendations for your pet.
