Question Peeing when greeting!!!

Everytime Lord meets a new person he starts greeting and peeing at the same time and when over petted he starts making the same sound as when he cries but he is happy!!!
And also everytime he's excited he pees.... Why is this behavior?? I am frustrated not knowing the answer...

Submissive urination is very common in young puppies and will generally stop as the pup gains confidence. Lots of good socialization will help too. Oakly did this as a pup also. One time I was holding him in my lap when another large dog approached.

That is exactly what my Banner did and he would also flip on his back so he was like a little fountain . He'd pee on himself and anyone that was close enough to him! That stopped around the time he hit 6 months. I think it's submissive peeing or just the fact that they are puppies with small bladders and cannot hold it when they are excited. Most pups outgrow this, I just tried to make sure when he met people, everyone kept the tone really calm so he wouldn't get overly excited. Good luck to you!

It's very confusing to me and to the one he's greeting.. I have a friend who has a 1 year old GR and she still urinates when this happens Any remarks on how to stop this or how to not make it a habit in the future... He's 4 months old!

I know one dog who did this when he was younger, and now it has stopped, but my Mister does it when people come to the door. His is the excitement pee. We try to have people meet him outside, but that's really just putting up with it instead of dealing with it. My plan to deal with it is to have everyone stay calmer when they arrive and don't make a big deal of the dogs. He used to be more that way and the more people get excited and "oh, Mister, Hi Mister!!!" the more he will pee. He never does it when I come home.

I'm getting a new foster dog on Saturday who does this, too, so I'll be getting more practice and I'll let you know if the attempting to keep everyone calm actually works!

Murphy did this when he was Lord's age. He is still very submissive, but he dosnt pee anymore. It is a little embarassing when the people point out that your puppy just peed everywhere.. I think bwoz is right, that little puppies just have smaller bladders and when they get excited they just let loose.. I am pretty sure that your Lord will grow out of it. Murphy did..

I found an article about submissive urination for me and for heaven and it's very useful. Thanks to Oakley's Dad he mentioned that it's called submissive urination. Loving this forum more and more

Keira did this. She's the only dog I've had that did. I HATED it... she got over it by age four or five months, but it tried me big time. I just ignored it. Punishing makes it worse!

My trick was when I got home, I didn't LOOK at her, say hello, or touch her... I silently opened her crate and RAN to the door and outside with her chasing me and then greeted her when we were on grass... it worked!
