It's almost as if he doesn't know he's doing it. Like when I take him outside to pee, he will squat & it's obvious he knows he's doing it, but sometimes in the house he will just be walking around & he will pee all over the place & it looks like he doesn't even know. I'm sure he does it outside too but I only notice it in the house.
I really don't have enough experience with dogs to know if it's "normal" or not but Soffee (my year old pitt) is the 2nd dog I have had that has had peeing "problems". The first dog I had that experienced problems peeing, was full grown and completely potty trained but she would always be peeing as if she didn't realize she was peeing. She got really sick last year, so we took her to the vet, they informed us that she had a severe kidney infection which was what caused her to have frequent accidents unknowingly. Soffee also has this problem, she'll pee in the middle of the night in bed like a small child and she will also sometimes just pee when she's sitting down. We're taking her to the vet this month to see if it's serious or it's just the puppy still in her. A puppy around the same age as yours use to walk home with me from the bus and everytime he ran up to me he would pee but he was completely healthy. It could just be his nerves getting the best of him or it could be something internally wrong with him. One way or another, the next time you take him to get shots or whatever, ask your vet about it and i'm sure they will let you know what's wrong if anything at all and ease your mind a bit.
Our puppy is 5 months and he used to do this- we are pretty sure it was him starting to mark his territory. It's essential you cut him out of this immediately, next time he does it growl him and push his nose to where he peed so he can smell it, make sure he knows it was very naughty, and take him outside straight away so he knows that outside is the only place to pee. He will soon get the message. If you don't stop him doing this he will keep doing it and start spraying when he's older. It only took a few times telling him off to get our pup to stop. They know they're doing it, but they aren't 100% sure why they are doing it, it's instinct I think.
I agree, especially at that age, we had a 5 month old Lab and he was always "letting go" not just from excitement but experiencing a new home and just letting other dogs or family members know that he's there.
Though sometimes a bladder wouldn't be as strong either, or he feels as if the puppy can't hold it.
I looked it up & found out that it's probably a UTI, & if we don't get it fixed it'll turn into a kidney infection. I know it's not from excitement cause we'll just be watching tv & he will calmly walk towards the couch & just pee on his way. I'm sorry about your other dog & hope the best for Soffee. :/
I've had younger dogs just randomly pee, not from excitement but just cause. I worry about it more, when there older cause they normally grow out of it. You should get him checked out as soon as possible, just in case. I'm sure he's a healthy pup but it's better to be safe than sorry. Goodluck lovely.<3
If it's not excitement, his bladder probably isn't too strong right now, try more frequent walks, even if they are just quick to let him release, it could also be him marking territory. These are the most likely scenarios
I always thought it was normal for any non-trained dog to do that? I might be wrong though:3
Just try and teach it too hold in its pee and do it outside..
Although it is only 4 months old.. xD
I wouldnt see why it wouldnt be normal. The puppy isnt fully potty trained.. So i wouldnt think there would be anything to worry about. Just give the puppy time
Is he super excited? Because sometimes dogs that are excited will just pee while they're standing up/walking.
He's a very hyper dog most of the time yes but he doesn't do it in excitement.
He does go outside !
