I adopted a 5 year old that had submissive urination problem that's why they got rid of her. With patience, training and love she will be able to overcome it, ours did after several months. Please DO NOT EVER scold her, this will make matters worse. Here is a site that will help you help her overcome the problem. Good Luck!
That's great. I couldn't find anything on the subject. This gives us hope. She's too cute to scold. I feel bad for her when she does it because she gets embarassed. It's sad you can tell that she knows what she has done. I wonder if abuse has caused this, I am her third owner that I know of. She is a beautiful longhair AKC pedigree that was originaly owned by my cousin who sold her to someone, then somehow she ended up in the pound, probably because of her problem, then my brother rescued her and gave her to me. She usualy only does this when company arrives but sometimes when I pick her up she will do it. Thanks for the link.
I know our little Penny had quite a time but eventually she did 'grow' out of it. Once in a while she would make a mistake but we loved her so much it didn't matter. It could be her previous life but those days are long gone and she is in a loving forever home now with you. If you have time please visit the Dachsie site I'm a member of I'm sure you would enjoy it. http://dachsie.org/vbb/
Hope to see you there.
I just posted regarding our Baxter who has the "happy peeing" problem. We have to tell everyone who comes to the house not to talk to him. It is a serious problem and we are almost ready to get rid of him. He is eight months old and is housebroken but this submissive peeing thing is ruining our carpeting. We have had the carpets cleaned three times since March!!! I am going to check out the web site that was referred to and hope we can train him out of this. I don't want to get rid of my weiner....
I am with you guys on this, my girl Penny is 5 months old and I have to clean up a daily puddle, sometime I have to change clothes if she is really happy to see me. It is very frustrating, especially when company comes to visit...makes me feel like a mean mom to tell people not to talk to her...it must be a daschund trait, because everyone I know has the exact same problem!
