how do I stop submissive peeing?
We have a 7 month old retriever cross who is a wonderful dog. He knows how to sit , how to lay down. I can take him for walks both on and off the leash which we do every night. He is great around our 4 yr old daughter and gets along wonderfully with the cat. Unfortunately every time I call him, he comes over, squats and pees. Doesn't matter how gently I call him, or where we are. I have no doubt that if I could tell him what he is doing wrong he would ry to stop it but I can't figure out a way to tell him that the behavior is wrong. I have tried for the last 4 months to be very gentle wth him. He has never been hit other than a swat on the butt when he was nose deep in the garbage once. This problem is not getting any better and in fact is getting worse as his bladder grows. It only happens with me, not my wife or our daughters. Do dogs grow out of this? Is there some training method that I haven't thought of, or are we just going to have to make a really tough decision.
Thanks for the help.
