Pomeranian Submissive Urination

Pomeranian submissive urination
Pomeranian dog submissive urination is defined as what a dog does when he sees, or interacts with, his owner, other dogs or people.

It may be confusing because you may think he has simply lost control of his bladder because he’s scared of something.

An owner may be very worried if this happens, especially if you have never given him any reason to behave in that manner.


Signs Pomeranian Suffers Submissive Urination  Include:

• Dribbling or emptying his bladder, like he has lost control.
• Behaving in a submissive manner (cowering and possibly also shaking).
• Looking up at a person with a frightened look or hanging his head in shame and refusing to make eye contact.
• A submissive grin. People may mistake this for a nasty growl because the dog’s teeth will be visible, but it actually causes the corners of the mouth to pull back in a canine form of appeasement.
• A dog can have squinty eyes, lick his lips, and possibly wiggle his body at the same time as “grinning.”Wwhy does my dog pee when excited:

How to Stop a Puppy Peeing When Excited:

1. Take him to his defined bathroom area frequently. If you believe you’re doing this, add several more trips per day.
2. Avoid direct contact straight after he pees. If he’s prone to peeing as soon as you come into the house, ignore him, pour a glass of water, read your mail and then pat him.
3. Never stand over him. Always kneel or sit down to greet him.
4. Never stare at your beloved pet as you greet him. Look to one side at first.
5. Your first physical touch shouldn’t be a pat on his head. Either touch him under the chin or on his chest at first.
6. If your dog does urinate submissively, don’t react. Keep calm and have a neutral face and relaxed body. Collect the cleaning products and clean up his mess.

Your dog’s behavior should get better over time. If it doesn’t, you may have to speak with the vet to determine if he has any health problems that may affect his bladder.

• If it happens with friends and you trust them to help you, ask them to follow the guidelines mentioned under the heading “in your presence,” as listed above.

In every case, it’s crucial that you begin to teach him commands or restart it because this is a guaranteed method for giving him a self-confidence boost.
