Dogs That Pee On The Floor For No Apparent Reason Could Be Suffering From An Underlying Health Problem, Explains Vet
If your new dog or dog pees on the floor for no apparent reason, you might have a submissive or excited urination issue. Any inappropriate urination, regardless of where it occurs, could signal a health problem. For older dogs, occasional incontinence is not unusual. You should still have your dog evaluated by your veterinarian. Dogs that urinate submissively are trying to please someone they see as "socially dominant" or "submissive. " Submissive dogs poop when they're welcomed, when someone approaches, or when there's a history of rough treatment or punishment after inappropriate urinating. This is common in rescued dogs and timid dogs.

Don't reprimand or punish your dog when it pees, just as with submissive dogs.
Urinalysis will show whether your dog has a urinary tract infection. It can be treated with antibiotics. X-rays can show whether the dog is suffering from bladder stones or cystitis. If you've tried everything but your dog continues to pore when excited or submissive, you may need to take it to a licensed veterinary behavior specialist. Sometimes getting a professional point of view on the problem can help. A specialist may be able to see patterns in your dog's behavior.
