Our dog always piddles when excited, how do you help stop this?

He's 8 months old now but still piddles like crazy.  He gets super excited whenever we come through the door and piddles all over the place, with visitors that he knows too.  This still happens even right after we've taken him out to pee.

Does anyone have any suggestions, does it ever stop, lol?  I'm getting so tired of mopping constantly...

    Some dogs eventually grow out of this, but you can help by completely ignoring him when you get home and having any visitors/guests do the same.  It helps keep him calm.  Don't give him any attention until he is calm.  You can also take him out right before guests come over and right after you get home (once he's calm).

    Thanks, this is exactly what we try to do, ignore him, don't talk to him or look at him, lol, and we do tell others too.  He still does it, just not as much of course.  We do take him out as well.  Maybe we should diaper him up, haha.

  • I think this is called, "submissive urination," and I think you can google it for some extra hints and tips, although with time I think the first reply is your best bet.  Also, clean everything with Nature's Miracle to be on the safe side.  My hat's off to you for your patience--hang in there :)

  • Our dog used to do the same thing and still does, very rarely though, and now it's only when we get home from being away for a while and he needs to go outside.  We always made sure he had an empty bladder when we knew someone was coming over.  I agree with a PP to ignore him when you first come in and take him right outside.  He may still get excited at first, but he will learn not to freak out when you walk in, and hopefully won't be peeing on you much longer!
