My husband and I just adopted Rocky about a month ago. He is 1-1 1/2 years old. He has been AWSOME! He is very gentle and laid back. He learns super quickly and loves clicker training. I am planning on taking him to obedience training soon (still looking for a good trainer).
I just have a few questions about things that have been coming up... First he has recently begun a little bit of submissive peeing- when someone comes to the house he gets excited and will squirt a little bit. Will this go away with age and experience? How do we make him more confident? He is a pretty sensitive guy...
Also when he is on the leash in the yard he will "hit the brakes" meaning he will just freeze and pull back on the lead. Usually as soon as I give him slack he will move forward, but not always. I have no idea why he does it, he never pulls when we go for walks...just in the yard .
Lastly- when he plays he will bite...he is usually super gentle except when he gets amped up . He has gotten a little better because we usually yell "OUCH" and stop playing for a little bit...but will this correct with age as well? I really don't want him to do this to someone else.
Those are my questions for now, I'm sure I will have more. I want to make sure that we can give him exactly what he needs to be happy and confident in us
