The Miniature Schnauzer is a popular breed of dog known for its intelligence and loyalty. However, one quirk of the breed is that they tend to urinate when they get excited – a trait that can be somewhat embarrassing for their owners!

There are a few different theories about why mini schnauzers might exhibit this behavior. One possibility is that it is simply a sign of excitement or happiness – much like a human might jump up and down or clap their hands when they’re enthusiastic.

Another possibility is that the behavior is linked to dominance. For example, urine is often used to mark territory in the canine world, so your mini schnauzer may be simply trying to assert its dominance over you or other household members!

Whatever the reason for this peculiar behavior, it’s important to remember that it’s perfectly normal for mini schnauzers.

How Do I Stop My Dog From Peeing When She Gets Excited?

If you’re finding that your mini schnauzer’s excitement pees are becoming a disturbance, there are a few things you can do to try and stop the behavior.

One option is to simply distract your dog when they start to get too excited. This could involve offering them a treat, playing with them, or even just calling their name in a cheerful voice. 

Another possibility is to desensitize your dog to the things that trigger their excitement while peeing. For instance, if you know your dog is likely to start urinating when they see another dog, you can begin by showing them pictures of dogs in books or on your phone. 

Gradually increase the level of the exposure until they no longer react with excited urination. Finally, it’s essential to be patient with your mini schnauzer – this is a behavior that could take some time to change. 

Remember to praise them whenever they don’t react with excitement peeing; eventually, they should learn to control their bladder in any situation!

Will Neutering Stop Excited Peeing?

For some dogs, neutering can help to stop excitement urination. This is because removing the hormones responsible for sexual maturity can have a calming effect on the dog. 

However, it’s important to remember that neutering is not a cure-all. Some dogs may continue to urinate when excited, even after they’ve been spayed or neutered.

What Is Submissive Urination?

Submissive urination is normal for your mini schnauzer to show their submission to you. This type of urination can occur when they are scolded, during Training, or even when they are happy and excited. Although it is natural behavior, it can be frustrating for owners.

There are some things you can do to reduce submissive urination in your mini schnauzer. First, avoid scolding or punishing them when they have an accident. This will only make the problem worse. 

Second, keep training sessions short and positive. Reward them with treats or praise when they do well. Finally, give them plenty of opportunities to go potty outside, so they don’t feel the need to go inside.

Submissive urination is usually not a cause for concern. Nevertheless, if the problem persists or your mini schnauzer seems to be in distress, please consult your veterinarian. They can rule out any medical conditions that may be causing the problem and provide you with additional advice.

How Do I Stop Submissive Urination?

Submissive urination is a normal doggy behavior that is seen more often in puppies, but some adult dogs may also do it. It happens when your dog feels scared or intimidated and will often occur during greetings, when being scolded, or during any situation where your dog feels subordinate.

The good news is that submissive urination can be resolved with patience and training. The first step is identifying triggers that cause your dog to urinate. Once you know what situations make your dog feel scared or subordinate, you can begin to avoid them or desensitize your dog to them. 

Does Submissive Peeing Go Away On Its own?

In some cases, submissive urination may go away on its own as your dog matures and becomes more confident. Yet, if the behavior is severe or is causing problems, such as making it challenging to housetrain your dog, you will need to take action.

Submissive urination is a normal canine behavior, but it can be frustrating for owners. Luckily, with patience and training, most dogs can learn to control their bladder and only go when appropriate.

If you struggle to stop your dog’s submissive urination, reach out to a professional trainer or behaviorist for help.
