Our expert says:
Without knowing more and seeing her behaviour it is difficult to answer this question. Many dogs urinate as a submissive gesture and this may be caused by too rough handling, shouting or punishment by an owner or previous owner. Some dogs are just more sensitive and need to be more gently handled to build their confidence. Feeling sorry for her is not going to help, so try to build her up by being confident with her, handling her firmly, brushing her every day and taking her out for walks and to meet people and dogs. Never reprimand her or punish her for urinating, but rather just turn away and avoid eye contact if she looks as if she may wee.
