Hi there, we have a German Shepard female who has just turned 6 months old, not yet slayed. We got her from a breeder and had her from 9 weeks old. She would initially sleep Inside and pretty much from day one potty trained herself to go outside. A few months ago she decided she wanted to sleep outside, and wouldn’t come back inside, so she now had a kennel outside. When we got her, we were in COVID lockdown so she had lots of attention from us, including two kids 7 and 9. A few months ago we all returned back to full time work and school and she will be outside during that time. I drop by at lunch time to fill up her king toys and we try and walk her every morning. The problem we are facing is that she has recently started urinating when she is doing something “naughty” and is told to get off or to sit. She urinates when either hubby or I go outside to say hello, even if we ignore her for a few minutes and she has calmed down. and example is today, I let her in the house, she walked around said hello to everyone she was relatively calm, I sat on the floor and opened my arms for hugs, she came to me and then urinated. So I immediately sent her outside. This evening hubby was Making lunches and she was right by the counter sniffing around so he told her to sit a few times and then she urinated. Last week she snuck into my sons room, jumped onto the bed and would not get down...when we tried to get her to come down...not yelling at her but nice and calm and with treats....Guess what.....she peed. We are spending some time training her, basic sit, wait, stay, mat, etc but I do know she is quite lonely when we are all away and I suspect this behaviour is correlated. Kids come home and run around with her every day, and she is inside the minute we are home.....until she pees somewhere. Please help, we really need help on how to handle this and train her out of this.
