10 month old English Springer Spaniel bitch peeing in house

Fidget, would pee when excited. She has stopped now.

Fidget, would pee when excited. She has stopped now.

We re-homed Mollie six weeks ago. She's a lovely girl and has lots to learn as we think she's had little training and attention with her previous owners. One problem that we are trying to deal with is her peeing everywhere. Our vet believes it's submissive peeing and we're trying our best not to stress too much over it and make Mollie more anxious, however, she pees all over the furniture, on family and friends, she even jumps onto our coffee table and dining table and pees. She doesn't have a water infection, does her poop outside, does small wees in the garden or on her walks but seems to prefer peeing indoors,


We tried putting a pee post in garden on some new turf as our garden is mainly hard landscaped. This has helped. We take her out every hour to pee but she's not very interested and saves her pee for indoors. We are currently working on basic training which is coming along. Mollie is still mouthing and bouncing madly around the house but getting a little calmer. We wish we could get on top of the peeing problem as it's so hard to live with. Any helpful advice please?

Pee Problem NEW

Yes, my SS did that too many times as a pup, for years. I would say it stopped when she was about 4. She would occasionally do it again if she meets new people and gets too excited if they pet her. It's a submissive thing and it's mainly because she is unsure about them.

Hi there
I had this with my bitch Fidget (photo attached). She did grow out of it. It's very common amoung Springer Spaniel bitches, and it is a pain, but as she matures she will stop. She is just showing that she knows you are the boss, which is really positive.
