I agree with Jane. It is a sign of submission…if Tyson has been scolded for inappropriate urination, he may be showing he knows his wrongdoing by submitting and releasing urine from the anxiety and excitement. It doesn’t sound like a physical, yet behavioral, issue. Puppies are more prone to this. It should subside as he matures…my Boston did the same thing. This breed is very excitable!

I have a 5 month old female that does the same. She peed all over my company today. Embarrassing!
