Reason 2 - Spraying:
Both female and male dogs spray (mark). Some people mistakenly believe that only males do this (perhaps because male Pomeranians are thought to be more dominant), however both genders, equally, may mark the house, essentially peeing all over.
It is important to note that puppies under the age of 3 months do not do this, therefore if you have a 2-month-old that is peeing all over, it will be due to another reason.
Marking territory is a canine instinctual behavior that can be triggered by the presence of other dogs…and it need not be on the same day. For example, if a friend brings over their dog for a play date, the scent of that dog will remain in your house for quite a while and your Pomeranian may begin to spray urine in an effort to “reclaim their territory”.
Some are so sensitive and aware of the scent of other canines that even just a residual trace on your clothing can set off urination marking.
The way to know if your Pomeranian is peeing all over the house for marking purposes is to pay attention to how much urine there is. For this, only small amounts are eliminated, the bladder is not emptied. In addition, a dog will often sniff quite a bit before doing this and may circle around the area.
An interesting note is that females often do NOT squat to do this, rather they will raise a leg…and some have been known to do a sort of handstand, briefly lifting both hind legs! For female Pomeranians, marking is sometimes done only before starting a heat cycle.
How Changes Can Cause This to Begin –
Changes in the home can make a Pomeranian feel insecure, which leads him or her to spray. Therefore, even if another animal is not in the picture, things such as a new person living in the home or even a new piece of furniture can set it off.
