Peeing at all times and acts scared
I have a 2 year old female Vizsla. She is a sweet girl and doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. We got her when she was 8 weeks old and our two kids were so happy to have a addition to our family after our two old dogs passed away. The issues are excessive peeing and acting scared.
She pees when she is excited, scared, happy, anxious and probably any other emotion. For example, when she meets someone new she pees at their feet, which from what I understand is on the “normal” side. When people come to our house I tell them not to touch her until she calms down. They could be there for 30 mins or all day and she will still pee when touched. My husband will come home from work and say hi to her, but waits a good amount of time before petting her to avoid her peeing all over the floor. 9 times out of 10 she still pees after he waits.
Another issue is that she has an emotional switch that flips at odd times. For example, I will be working with her on basic commands using treats (no more than 5 - 10 mins). She can go through all the commands without any issue and then all of the sudden it is like a switch flips and she acts as though I am scolding her. She refuses to obey the command, tucks her tail, goes to lay down and on occasion will pee. It is like she shuts down and I am at a loss of what is happening.
We try to love on her and give a tons a pets and kisses, but it makes it hard because she is so unpredictable (if she is going to pee). Sometimes she will be just fine and then we will say her name or address her and she acts as though she has been punished.
We are confused at what to do or how to proceed with her.
