Default HELP...cant stop my 25weeks old puppy from peeing when he sees his lead

Hi everyone,

im struggling with my puppy, Buzz. Whenever he sees me put my jacket/shoes on or he sees me with his leads he pees. Buzz has be house trained for sometime now and I take him out at about 10pm then he is fine until about 7am however during the day could be 90mins between walks he will still pee when he sees his lead.

So far I have tried leaving his lead lying around so hes not scared, I have tried ditracting him while putting his lead on but none of it is working he even pees on the carpet which he would never do. Im losing the will to live with it. I have now resulted in putting his lead on outside.

Any advice would be appreciated.,

thanks
Joanne xx

What about just leaving the leash on him while he's in the house? Supervised of course. Hanging one up outside and hooking him up outdoors until he can get better control might be your best bet for now. Also, is it possible he may have some urinary tract issue or is it all just from excitement?

Are you sure it's submissive peeing? Could be just excitement peeing. In that case he'll outgrow it.

Joanne,

My first shepherd use to pee when people would come over to my house. She'd get all worked up and go through these crazy gyrations and then pee. She only did this when she was young and stopped before she was a year old.

I know it might seem like a mountain to climb but with my new pup, I incorporated a down stay before we'd go for a walk or somewhere with the leash. She would just loose her marbles when the closet door opened where my boots and leash were, so I figured no more of the whirling dervish and changed strategies. I'd put her on a down stay and then move toward the closet, she'd break and we'd start again....repeat 10X-20X. Finally, I could touch the door handle without her breaking.....GOOD GIRL..super premium treat time. Then it slowly proceeded ...step by step with small successes to get to the point where the leash and boots could come out of the closet without her breaking....patience, patience, patience. I think my pooch finally figured it out due to the inordinate amount of time it took to finally get out the front door. My experience suggests that a dog on a down stay takes the edge off them while being in this submissive position. I understand your problem is different than mine was but as you have acknowledged, you need a new approach. So, it might take a multitude of tiny steps to accomplish the big task but I do believe you will find success if you are patient and creative.

Hang in there,

SuperG

Thanks everyone, Im not sure if its excitement, submissive or if its just he doesnt have proper control yet. Its just hard to know what to change when you don't know what actually causing it but we will try wee changes and see how we get on.

Patience is a virtue and all that. I have just enrolled him in basic obediance 6week block course....more for me than him to be honest! I will see if I can get any wee hits and tips there too.

Thanks again
