It could quite possibly be that Abby has a physical/hormonal problem (incontinence) which can be medicated by the vet. Please re-post this query if you'd like the vet to answer as well. However it doesn't sound like it as she seems to urinate when spoken to or looked at, which is a sign of submission. Because you have 2 female pups you are going to find that one will (hopefully, or you will have fights) be more submissive and the other more dominant. My suggestion is to be very careful how you discipline the dogs. Never reprimand or punish them, but rather use positive reinforcement (treats and praise) when they have done something good and just ignore (or distract them from) any bad behaviour. And never call a dog to be punished or it will never come to you willingly again. Greet the dogs when they are outside (always greet the dominant one first) and don't say anything when she wees, but just stop touching her when she does. She is showing her submission to you, which is polite in dog language. Be aware of eye contact and try to avoid sudden direct eye contact. Practise calling her outside (while turning side-on to her) and touching her and then gradually giving her eye contact while praising her and giving her a treat. If she wees, ignore it. Build up her confidence and trust in you. Most puppies grow out of this behaviour without any "help" from their owners, providing it is ignored and not reprimanded.
