My 3 month old puppy widdles every time she is approached. Any suggestions? She is potty trained, e
poodle puppy, well behaved, happy, not abused,
Your puppy is over excited. Mine dog started that to. At first I scolded her and she never did it again. Our sweet puppies want to please us, and feel bad if we are unhappy with them. The first year is the time that training a dog and the lessions we teach make an impact on their short lives, after the first year you will not have scold them anymore.
Try to be calm when you approach the dog, and approach it indirectly. Do not speak, do not look straight at it, sidle up to it from the side (not head on), and see if that helps. Another alternative is to hold out a treat and get the dog to come to you instead of you to the dog. Again, don't move too quickly or aggressively when you go to pick her up, and try to approach from the side. Try to imagine what you would do if approaching a skittish horse, and move accordingly, i.e. slowly and cautiously without any sudden surprises.
If you still need answers, visit Petfinder.com and check their information library for expert answers to all your pups needs. If you don't find an answer in the library I think they give you an option to email and ask an expert. Hope this helps.
This is something we hear about everyday at the vets office...this is called submissive urination. This is something one of my dogs have. Even if you do not scold etc it can and will happen. You must do as the others have said approach with a smile and try to come down to her level...If you tower over her it makes her feel she should be on the defense...continue with slow approaches and lots of hugs and kisses!!!

If you were/are/will be an Atheist, how would you prefer to be approached by someone of a faith?

It seems like it would be a little intimidating to be approached by a man you have never met before. I guess my question is what should you say, and if women even like being approached by men they don't really know. TY
