How do I get my german shepard puppy to stop dominance peeing?
Every time I take my German Shepard puppy out to go to potty he will pee on me or squat and pee. He just started doing this a few days ago. How do I get him to stop doing this? He has been crate trained. He is disciplined when he does it, by saying no firmly and shaking a can of coins. Im running out of ideas. I've consulted a German Shepard forum about it.
My shepherd when I got him would dribble on the floor every time I came home from work. I had to change discipline techniques with him. I had been using the scruff of the neck shaking and taking him down to the ground and using dominance over him as trainers here suggested. It appears that was a mistake. It took 3 years for the dog to overcome the problem. I would get upset when he would start peeing, which in turn made him pea more. Once I realized to control my disgust with his peeing, AND IGNORE HIM when I first came home, he was able to start to control those feelings. It was sporatic at times, but he out grew it.
