Thanks for getting back to me.
There are several possible reasons that I can think of that may be contributing to Mallwoman’s problem. Stress or an anatomical/neurological condition.
As far as stress, does she seem relaxed, enjoying her work, or was she difficult to train, somewhat resentful, etc.? Were there any type of uncomfortable issues during her training (uncomfortable experiences, etc.)? If so, the stress of performing may be a contributing factor.
If you don’t believe that this is some type of psychological/behavioral problem, you might consider a thorough exam by her Vet. There is an anatomical condition in which the vagina is, in a sense, “larger” than normal, and urine can collect on the vaginal floor. This is known as “urine pooling”. If this is the case (and I’ll grant, it’s a longshot…) this can be surgically remedied. You may also consider having her Vet check her neurological function throughout her entire hindquarters. She may have a neurological deficit, which prevents her from holding her urine until she desires to urinate. Neurological deficits can cause a weakness in muscle tone and if one is present, may be affecting her urinary bladder and urethral function.
So yes, like everyone else, I haven’t encountered this type of problem! The above are my suggestions for you, as far as a few possibilities as to why Mallwoman is exhibiting this behavior.
I do hope that I have been of some help, but please feel free to ask any further questions.
All the best,
