is important information. It is not uncommon for some puppies to urinate when they are
excited or scared. They are
not aware that they are doing it. It
is important that you do not scold
them for this. You have to
just ignore the fact that it happened.
Don’t get excited or show stress about the accident.
If you scold the puppy, you will only make the matter worse. The puppy will anticipate being scolded and therefore be more
likely to urinate in those situations.
Be patient. This
problem is most common in female puppies under 1 year of age and the
puppy will eventually outgrow the problem.

are social animals that use subtle cues to maintain order and prevent
disputes. In order to display deference to a more dominant individual, a
submissive dog uses gestures such as averting her eyes, rolling on her
back, and urinating. So when a dog feels intimidated or threatened, the
appropriate response is to offer a submissive signal. These signals
demonstrate that the dog recognizes another individual's dominance. The
urination that occurs is not a spiteful act but a natural part of a
dog’s behavioral repertoire. If the problem occurs when friends greet
her ask them to do this, too. Submissive
urinating often occurs when a dog encounters another animal or person
that they consider dominant.
occurs when puppies have not yet developed proper bladder control. They
may urinate every time they feel excited, most of the time without even
noticing. When this happens, do not get upset or reprimand your puppy
for urinating. If you do, then the problem can turn even worse because
it will turn into submissive urination. To prevent this from
happening, you should increase your puppy's exposure to the event that
makes him urinate. Do this, as many times as possible in order to make
it so common that it no longer excites your dog. As your puppy grows
older or simply loses interest in the event, the problem will be
eliminated. Sometimes puppies urinate because they are excited to see
people that come to the house. If this is the case, have the people come
in and get sat down before the puppy sees them.
Then take the puppy outside to potty before they see guests.
Tell guests to ignore the puppy for a while when it first comes
in until the puppy settles down. Then the guests can give the puppy attention but don’t have
them make a big fuss over the puppy.
