Potty training with spotting?

Hello and thank you all in advance for your help.

We took home our Male GSD puppy 2 weeks ago at 12 weeks old.

In the first week, miraculously, he potty trained very well with with treats and praise every time we walked him outside every hour. He only had maybe 1 accident in his first week.

Now, 2 weeks later, the puppy is starting to spot urinate at random places. We know he did not complete his urination cycle because when we take him out immediately following his spotting, he usually finishes his urination.

We did previously have a Male Yellow Lab and our puppy is a Male. Is this a possible territorial thing? Any theories or suggestions?

We are concerned that he went from doing a great job the first week to suddenly spot urinating.
