5mo Old Peeing Excitedly
Hey Guys, I have a 5mo male puppy named Zephyr.

He was potty trained in a matter of weeks, learned sit down and stay in just a few days, but he has this terrible habit of peeing whenever he's excited. This includes meeting people, seeing people he hasn't seen in over 2 hours, coming out of his crate, seeing other dogs he does know and ones that he doesn't know.

It really does not seem submissive as he is not submissive with humans or other dogs. We have tried just ignoring him until he calms down the last few weeks, but he still pees everywhere until he calms down. Its gotten so bad that in the mornings you can't even get a leash on him to take him out without having a soaked floor.

He is 100% not abused, never spends more than 2-2.5 hours in his crate at a time and doesn't seem to have any fear issues at all.

Any ideas?

What is the interaction before he does this? How are you approaching him in the morning?

I kinda have the same problem with my 5 month old female. She only does it to my 21 year old son and his 20 year old girlfriend. I notice that when I give the 'ok' to greet, they put their faces down to hers and use a high pitch voice. I can't seem to train my son and his GF to stop. 😳 I can't wait to hear solutions for the OP.

umm....actually I replaced my carpet with a vinyl flooring. I don't suppose that's very helpful.

Ugh my 5 month pup does this too when I take her out the crate sometimes. I don't o ut a leash on we just walk out the apartment building. But if she sees someone she will get to excited and squirt a bit in the hallway. Is there a way to calm them down? I've heard spaying does calm them down a bit but I don't kno if I want to breed her later

yea i was about to post a new thread regarding this issue also, it happens when Noah sees new people and gets really excited, and whens hes out of the kennel at times he will drip a bit. Also i noticed when he was playing around last night he was playing with a ball and noticed that there was a little spots on the floor that were wet, he seemed like he just playing around so not sure if it was slaber or pee. Btw hes 11 weeks old.

Mine when he was younger prox 3-6 months, used to pee/dribble when he would get excited. As he got older he stopped on his own. I wonder if some just have a weaker bladder when there younger.

I have an excited pee-er. She's 8 months and finally starting to outgrow it. I'd also rule out a UTI, they can really contribute to a lack of bladder control if a young dog already has weaker bladder muscles (like my dog)... it was a big factor in my girl's pee issues. Honestly, I don't really know of any fixes besides being calm, patient, and consistent, and waiting for them to outgrow it.
