Unhappy stll cant get minnies submissive peeing better

Its starting to really get to me now its getting worse instead of better !!! I cant even reprimand her a little without her peeing where she is !!. so irritating as sometimes she is on the bed . she sometimes purposely pees a little in the bed too which is infuritating .This has all happened ever since I got the cat so generally she was very good before that how can she be a submissive dog in general if this has only happened since getting a cat??

Minnie knows she is favoured as she has a bed in my room and the cat sleeps outside the room in her bed. they each have their own feed bowls well away from each other each have plenty of toys each get treats or titbits equally when given minnie is always the one taken out for walks etc.. and gets a bit more attention. I praise her when she goes outside more now and am consistant with her when she needs to go . maybe im not letting her out enough i do it about 4 times spread out through the day but she seems to do it when shes told off .
she still poops in the house a bit even after ive let her out ive got a garden now so no excuse lol .

I would start over from the beginning in potty training and take her out every 1/2 hr, after she eats, drinks, wakes up from a nap, first thing in the morning, etc.. I also wouldnt let her back on your bed until you get it straightened out. And dont reprimand her use positive reinforcement instead of getting upset and reprimanding her, that is definately not helping and is quite possibly making things worse.

What do you mean by "reprimand her a little" ? How do you reprimand her?
My chi Mia is very submissive and has submissive peed in the past but I've been able to get it under control because I know what triggers it. For example, if people walk towards her and she starts to roll on her back I ask them to turn away- if they keep walking to her she will pee.
"She sometimes purposely pees a little in the bed"
Have you had her checked for a UTI? I've never heard of a dog "purposely peeing a little" in a bed.

Jerry is a submissive wetter. When I talk to him excitedly in a happy voice, he wets.
I am learning to have him follow me to non-carpeted areas before I talk to him or try to
pick him up.
Please do not reprimand her at all. I think you will continue to get poor results from her.
If she could talk, she may tell you,
"I'm very frightened and I am wetting myself to show you I am not a threat to you."

Unhappy

^^^ and me cos I would never scare my dog like that if people think that here by now after being so long that really upsets me and I feel too bad to post anymore then.

BTW when I mean reprimand just tell her "no bad doggie" and thats all didnt know that would be any kind of abuse.

In future ill just ask the vet for advice thanks.

I did not, really did not, say you are abusing your dog. I was trying to get you to think about what your dog is thinking as a help to understanding her behavior.

Here is a quote from: http://www.canismajor.com/dog/puptrain.html
"When first introduced to his new family, a puppy will usually act somewhat submissive. When greeted, your new puppy may roll over on his back and urinate or he may squat and urinate. He is sending you a message in dog language which says, “don’t hurt me, I am not a threat to you.” If he submits in this manner, do not scold him or you will make the problem worse."

My chi is 4 years old and she pees out of any excitement it's annoying but I control it by not speaking to her in high pitched voices and I don't touch her for 30 mins at least once I get home. My vet said she would grow out of it but she hasn't yet...still waiting for the day lol

Sometime I will just say "HI BABY HOW ARE YOU" and she will let out a few drips in mybed too it sucks! I tried getting a diaper for her but even xxs is too big for her thin waste. I suppose I should just keep hoping one day she will "outgrow it" lol
