I'm new here, but hopefully i can ask a few questions relating to my current and future pets. First, i have a min. Dachshound. He's the most laid back dog i've ever seen. He's in good health. But we have this problem with him. He seems very timid and gets scared or affraid very easily. When he does this, he pees. I'm not even sure he knows he's doing it. It's very frustrating. He's about 6 years old and it started about 2 yrs ago when he moved to a new home. Any time you lean down to pet him, he'll pee on the floor. If you tell him no, or raise your voice at him at all, he'll get scared and think you're mad at him, in which case, he'll pee. You'd think we beat him or something, but he's never had a hand laid on him in his life. He's not very active. He doesn't play with balls, toys, etc. All that makes him happy is laying next to you, preferably right in your face. What could be his problem, and do you think there's a solution? He's not neutered, could that be the problem? would neutering help? We've tried being as nice as possible with him, with plenty of affection. He gets really excited when we get home, but if we lean down to pet him, he pee's! The only solution is to not lean down to pet him. but still, if he thinks we're mad at him, and he jumps on the couch to sit with us, he'll pee. Otherwise he hardly ever goes in the house. second, he plays great with other dogs. Would anyone see a problem with a weimaraner being his new buddy? He's not great with big dogs now, he's a little intimidated, but a puppy would be about his size, so i'm guessing he could get used to it. thoughts? sorry for being so long, just figured i'd give a little info on his personality so you could better judge the kind of dog he is.
