Alright, so my 3 month old German Shepherd had been doing really well with potty training. He hadn't gone inside for a while and now all of a sudden he's walking around and peeing at the same time right after going outside and doing his business. I have no clue why he's doing this. Any ideas?

Sounds like he's marking his territory, I have females, so I'm not sure what to do, but when we watch our friends male dog, he will try to mark in the house. We keep him in a small area when we can't supervise him, and this works for us, of course, it's harder for you because this dog lives there.
Do you have other dogs? If he feels he needs to mark, it may be the scent of other dogs.
I've been told, the more dominant the dog, the more they will mark. Good luck

Have him check by a vet for a URI.. if that isnt it, then yes, he is most likely marking ... and if that is the case.. He may need to be neutered to stop it *if he isnt* and then the behavior Can last for a month after, before the hormones are all gone. Is it just the floor he is peein on? or is he lifting his leg to pee on sofa and walls?

Well, he's too young to be neutered at this point. He doesn't lift his leg. He just kinda, walks around so we don't notice him and he starts to dribble. I don't know. He's due for a vet check here pretty soon. Maybe I'll ask about that to see if the vet can see if he has a UTI. Thanks for the advice.

Why is he too young to be neutered? Ours had it done from the shelter we got him from at 6 weeks old.....I also thought it was young but was told age doesn't matter for the males...Ours had submissive peeing until he was about 3-4 months and out grew it....but I always wonder if it was because he was neutured too early.
