Help With Submissive Urination
I have a 4 month old mini female Aussie. We have had her for a month. First of all she's been to the vet no UTI or anything medical. We also know the breeder and up until a week ago we had zero issues.
She is very submissive. Constantly showing hey belly flattening her ears etc. She has a very routine potty schedule and prior never had accidents. Recently, she began to pee whenever I came home or leave the room and return. She use to be overly excited and had accidents. Each time she had an accident I would take her outside. Always praised when she goes, never yelled. I started to ask her to sit or lay down when I greeted her to avoid the urination.
Now each time she sees me she immediately puts her ears down squats and begins to walk away trailing small amounts of pee. I've tried kneeling, avoiding eye contact, approaching her from the side. Nothing is working. It seems to be getting worse. Again she's not punished, we calmly clean up the mess. I even stopped taking her outside each time because she just got more nervous. I need help what am I doing wrong?
