Tug is good. You can also look online for other confidence building games.

He's really, really cute. I bet he'll come right around as he gets use to his new environment and all. Good luck. Kudos for giving him a good home.

Actually, I wouldn't do anything if he rolls on his back and urinates...no fuss, no attention, no commands.

He's adorable! Reminds me of Murray from "Mad about you", is that who you named him after?

We didn't even put 2 and 2 together about Mad About You until a friend asked the same thing. We just thought it was a good name and he looked like a Murray. His original name was Cinnamon.

What kind of interactive toys would help build his confidence? Something like treat toys where he has to work for them or something else?

Thank you all for the advice and comments on his cuteness...He's got the puppy look down, and manages to melt me every time he does it.

Omg he's adorable! Murray is such a good name for him. Congrats on the new baby!!!

To remedy the submissive urination... I suggest not approaching him. Call him to you, give him a treat, and give him slow, calm petting and attention. No baby talk or squealing or anything. When you first see him or let him out of his crate, ignore him and wait until he's calm. Crouch next to him, try to be as emotionless as possible and distract him by dropping a treat when you need to put his leash or collar on. NEVER give him any attention if he rolls over, just walk away.

Tug-a-jugs are fun & reqire tugging, tossing and rolling to get the kibble out! Stuffed kongs are also essential with puppies. I'd clicker train him, hand feed him and capture good behavior like sitting and coming as often as possible. I wouldn't give him ANY harsh verbal corrections or physical corrections, as he sounds like a really sensitive guy. Ignoring bad behavior, occasional "ah-ah"s, and rewarding good behavior should teach him what you want from him quickly.

Awesome, Thank you for the toy advice. We'll get a tug a jug for him and try that. We do have kongs that he likes. He's very sensitive, and wants nothing more than to please us. He comes to a sliding sit when we call him to us, almost like some one sliding into base. He's really smart and has learned really quickly.
