Your dog may be to anxious if there are changes in routine, moving where you live, having new visitors around your dog, or losing their previous owner, can make dogs act or be anxious because they don't understand what is going on around them, and unfortunately they really can't go speak to a therapist, and their normal life starts to look scary to them.

If they do act anxious then stay calm it will take care of itself with your help. You almost need to potty train them from the beginning again. NEVER PUNISH your dog for going on the floor if it suffers from anxiety it's not their fault and it will only make the control of the dogs bladder worse.

Your dog will actually pee or lose control of their bladder when they are submissive it happens in puppies a lot or dogs recently adopted. Others lose control because they get to excited, my dog did it for 4 months if you came over to my house and you were a visitor he loved you, you didn't like him because he would start peeing not even realizing it and pee on your shoe and sometimes up your pant leg if you allowed him to jump up. In each case, get to know your dog and understand when accidents might occur and avoid these situations where possible or show them it's ok not to get excited. I would put him in a leash and hold him next to me until they were in the house for a little while then slowly introduce him to them that worked awesome.Remember it takes time.
