How old is she? How long have you had her? Is she potty trained?

you have to give more information. The dog may be coming in to season. The dog may have an infection, may have an incompetent bladder - or does not empty and then dribbles --

A dog peeing beside me doesn't always mean I'm being 'claimed' as a territory. So you may want to mind shift away from that for a start.

How old is your pup? How long have you owned her? When did this habit start up? When was your last vet visit? Is this in the house or outdoors?

How much exercise is your dog getting? How are dog classes going? Does she pee on you in dog class? What does your instructor think is going on?

Have you contacted the breeder for assistance? Even a quick visit with them may help with the situation.

Welcome to the forum!

- yes you do have to mind-shift from thinking it is dominance -- it may be the exact opposite - the dog may be submissive dribbling when you are around and she feels the pressure . Then you pay attention to the "peeing" "marking" and she gets more excited , throwing you more signals that she is submitting to you . Calming signal , not dominance.

Every situation that my mind went to, the previous posters already mentioned. Definitely need more information.

I've never actually heard of a female marking it's territory, does it happen?

Hey now i actually do think about it when she does it she kinda puts her ears back and her tail is in a low position, so actually by doing that she is trying to calm me
