It's either a UTI or incontinence, but ONLY a vet check will tell you for sure. Bring a urine sample.
My dog has had two UTIs and recently got incontinence, so believe me, I know what I'm talking about.
If it's a UTI, there's medicine to cure that. If it's incontinence, there's medicine for that too and while it doesn't cure incontinence, it helps to reduce it.

100% urinary tract infection (or UTI) Classic symptoms are peeing in a cool place (like on tile or even in the dry tub) It burns too pee so it wants to go someplace cold. Sorry, but you have to take it to the vet NOW! It can become very serious for its kidneys. Its very painful but the vet can relieve it immediatly with a shot. GO NOW!
