How to Stop Your Dog From Submissive Peeing


In a pack, dogs have various methods to show the leader that they accept his role as top dog and avoid a fight, such as urinating on themselves on their backs. While submissive urination is common in puppies, they usually outgrow it. However, some dogs remain intimidated into adulthood when submissive urination becomes a problem in the home.
