Submissive Urination

Bella piddles everytime we take her out somewhere. We are working with a trainer, but I wanted to know if this common with havanese puppies?

Hi San, yes fairly common with pups. UC Davis has a good article here. http://behavior.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/l...on_in_Dogs.pdf
You say this happens when you go out. Give me some examples.

Dave,

Thanks for the information.

Some examples are whenever we take her to the vet and try to take her out of the crate, she piddles as soon as she comes out or right before coming out. She also urinates in puppy training class whenever someone pets her.

yeah she sounds on the shy side. The vet thing is quite typical. As much as simple checkups seem innocuous , they sometimes can be aversive to a pup. The first visits should always be gentle and positive with some rewards. Just the environment with all the sounds and smells can be overwhelming for a pup. See if you can just let her come out of the crate on her own. Simply open the door , throw a nice treat out a few feet away. and keep everything low key. The trainer has to keep it slower for her,at puppy classes. talk to them about it. Just go very easy with her and give lots of praise for being adventurous.

Dave,

Thanks for all of the great advice. I will definitely try those suggestions.

It's common in general for small pups, I think. But I've never had an issue with my Havanese.

Our little girl,Nellie,who is over 2 years old still does submissive urinating,it is only the tiniest bit and she cleans herself up straight away.She mainly does it when DH comes home,he tries to be calm with her and tell her to sit before she gets her stroke and cuddle,she is always very submissive towards him,licking him and rolling on her back for tummy rubs,her tail continually wags.She is also very protective of me,and can become jealous if I am cuddling Dizzie or the cats.
