Piddling when leashing?

Hello (:

We're in need of some advice!

We have two dogs who have recently started peeing when they are having their leashes put on. We just moved into an apartment, and they aren't used to having to be leashed when they go out to potty, but I can't seem to break them of at all! ):

It's increasingly frustrating to clean up pee every day and night when my dogs are housebroken (or used to be, at least).

One of the dogs has always had an issue with 'submissive peeing;' anytime she thought we were being dominant she'd piddle. Now that we've moved, this has gotten worse and our other mutt has started doing it also. Mostly it just happens when they are being leashed, like I said.

If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears! Feel free to ask any questions for more details.

They probably get excited or any not so ordinary feeling right now, especially the new environment and new thing on their neck. Maybe take your dogs on a neutral place where they are very calm and relax, then put the leash and praise them when successfully put on. Do this until they get used to it.

They are used to leashing in general, it just used to mean "we're going to walk around the block!" and now it means "we're either going out to potty and right back in or we're going to walk around this new place.." so I can see the confusion there.

Thanks for the input.

When they get used to it....most of the time they figure out whats going to happen when its on. So, they get real eager to wear it.
