I would definitely take him for a checkup. There are several things that can make him urinate in his crate/while walking. Our older dog started doing that. We had tests run and found out he has calcium oxalate crystals in his urine which would indicate possible kidney stones. He has been walking/peeing for quite some time.From what I understand, it would be very rare for a young dog to have those problems, but we also have bladder problems with our 16 week old puppy. He also will urinate while he is walking/running/jumping around. I don't know if he even realizes he is doing it. His blood work all came out fine but the vet said she thinks he has a loose sphincter.

Good luck and I hope it's nothing serious!
