SUBMISSION URINATION PROBLEM

There are no problem breeds. It's a common habit to blame a dog's troublesome behaviors on its breed, but this is something that I personally disagree with.  Conversely, I've experienced a multitude of other full and mixed breeds - small and large - that do exhibit this particular problem! Be careful about writing a dog off because it's got a reputation as a "problem breed." I believe there are no problem breeds, only problem owners.

Do not reward unwanted behavior. If your dog is easily excitable, talking to her and petting her when she is in an unstable, excited state is not recommended. It only nurtures the unwanted behavior. What she may need is to release her pent-up energy, then return to a quiet, safe space.

Recommendations.  I recommend a four-step approach to correct her submissive urination problem:

1. Take her out on walks more frequently.

2. Make an appointment with her vet to see if there are any health issues, such as a bladder or kidney infection.

3. If  her health checks out, then I'd advise contacting a qualified dog trainer who can help with her potty training.

4. You will benefit from learning how to set the rules, boundaries, and limitations on her needs.

An insecure dog will often display submissive urination issues, the best way to work on her self-esteem is by socializing your dog.
