      Hi Cindy,
      Dogs generally grow out of submissive urination by the time they are one year old, even if their parents do nothing about it. Nevertheless, if you find it unpleasant and messy, the following suggestions might help you manage or minimize the behavior:

      • Greet your Ryder outside
      • Toss a few toys or some treats in his direction as he starts running to greet you
      • When petting your dog, touch under his chest or chin, rather than on his ears or head
      • Do not bend over your dog, touch him, speak to him or look at him, if he starts submissively urinating or if you think he might
      • Do not frown at your Ryder in reaction to submissive urination
      • Avoid yelling or punishing your dog, as it might make the issue worse

    We just rescued the sweetest Pom Das mixed from the shelter. He is about 2 years old and is attached to me like crazy 🙂 I am the mother 🙂 he enjoys spending time with the husband and our children …. 9-12 years of age but follows me everywhere. I can tell he has separation anxiety so we spend a lot of time with him and when we leave we leave him toys. He follows commands well and the first couple days we trained him to do his business outside and so far so good! Very smart! He is good for our family and we love having him!

      Hi Jamie,
      You should confine your Dameranian pup in a crate or a room. As your pup learns that it needs to go out to do its business, you can give it more freedom to move freely about the house. Follow these steps when housetraining your 12-week old pup:
      • Keep it on a daily feeding schedule but make sure to take away its food between meals.
      • When it wakes up in the morning, take it out to eliminate. Also, take it outside every 30-60 minutes, as well as after meals.
      • Take it to the same area each time to eliminate.
      • When it pees or poops outside, you should praise it by giving a treat. You may also take it for a walk around the park.

      You have to be VERY strict with the training for these pups. Dachshunds are very stubborn about this kind of thing. I have found that training them to go on a potty pad in a certain spot in the house, along with training them to go outside. (Preferably train them outside first) If it is cold or raining, they will REFUSE to go outside.

    I have a 7 yr old female pom-chi who was born missing a front right leg. Well, she has a little “drumstick like chicken wing” and has never had trouble getting around like a normal dog. She’s as normal as an other as far as she knows. I have just got a 6 week old Damerania and my older dog is taking to her very well. I love these small mixed breeds and have so much love for them it amazes me how we, as humans, can love and be loved in return by these wonderful animals. As far as training these dogs go, an individual gets in return what is put into training them and I find that it also makes us better individuals ourselves in kind. Just had to tell about my wonderful pets after reading others stories.

    My dameranian puppy won’t walk with leash. But if i don’t use the leash, he’ll walk following me. Is it a problem? (I just thought about obedience)

    • admin says:

      Hi Claudia!
      Clinginess is often seen in very young pups, as it is their natural behavior to stay close to their mother and littermates. When a Dameranian puppy goes to its new home, it tries to cope with its new surrounding by staying close to its people. As an owner, you offer love, hugs, praise, food, and comfort; so all these things naturally attract your young pup. Moreover, Dameranians are characteristically friendly, so it is normal for the pup to crave your companionship. Although you cannot undo this innate characteristic, you can try to reduce its clinginess by obedience and positive reinforcement training.

      Our Dameranian had the same problem. Try using a harness so the leash clips to her back instead of in front of her. Also look for a leash with the teeniest clip,it got in our puppy’s way and she was afraid to walk with it. Stay persistent and offer her a lot of positive encouragement, we took our girl for many “drags” before she got the hang of walking on a leash. Now she loves going for walks and will run over to have her leash put on!

    do they chase cats?

    • Taylor Kalb says:

      Yes!! Lol. Like any dog, it’s natural instinct. If you get them as a puppy, you can train them not to, especially if you have them in the home. But just like people..everyone develops and learns differently. No animal is the same. Max, my 2 year old Dameranian has quite the personality! When we visit Grandma’s, she has cats.. Sometimes he will chase, other times he ignores them. I tried to train him to not ‘discriminate’ lol. I will say though, best companion I’ve ever had.
