I have a Jack Russell Terrior. Everytime you go to pick her up to take her outside she starts peeing. Does anyone know why she does this? Any suggestions on how to stop her from doing this? I would greatly appreciate all the advice I can get.
This is really common, especially in smaller dogs. It's called Sumissive Urination. It's a way for the dog to show they recognize you as the boss. It could be because she's frightened by heights and sees it an as act of aggression, but she's more likely just doing it in response to you being so close to her.
