is there something we can do to correct the behavior or is it a condition.

I am happy to tell you that this is totally normal

My own puppies did this

The key is to prevent access to the urine- this will happen once puppy is house trained

That means being extra vigilant about having him pee outside only

Do you have info on house training? :)
