Sprinkling when meeting people.

Hi everyone, I hope you all are doing well!

Brew is about 5 months old now and doing fantastic. Weighed him in today and he's a healthy 42lbs and growing strong!

I'm having an issue with Brew peeing when he meets new people? He's a very outgoing guy, loves to meet people but he's very submissive, he greets people in a typical golden way, full body wiggles as he approaches (tail between his legs tho) and as soon as the person speaks to him or makes contact he starts to sprinkle. He does this at the vet, and not because he's scared or anything, he's just SO happy, and maybe a bit insecure.

At the park he sprinkled on a poor womans shoe! I felt terrible! When hubby comes home from work if he say's hello and gives Brew love right away he sprinkles! Is this just an age related thing that he'll grow out of? It's been going on now for almost two months.

Liza did this up to about five months. She doesn't do it anymore, so I think it is age related.

Our Phoebe is 8 months and still pees all over herself & the floor whenever someone new greets her! She gets so excited and wiggly! Thanksgiving was crazy with everyone coming and going! She was over the moon with all the attention, but I had to bring out the mop! Otherwise, she has no issues with bladder control. Just sayn'!

My boy did that a little until he was 5 or so months old and he hasn't done it since

Cooper did that too. I think he stopped when he was somewhere between 6 and 7 months old. When he was still doing it, I found it helpful to have people call right before they arrived so I could let him out to go potty. This stopped, or at least reduced, the sprinkling . Also, talk with your guests about being calm and not talking to your puppy until he is sitting and calm himself...and no high pitched baby talk...at least with Cooper, that helped fix it too! Good luck!

So glad that I'm not alone on this. I have a few people that know when they come over to just ignore him until he's calm, but the hubby (Who should know better) is always so happy to see Brew when he gets home can't help himself, so Brew pee's. I think the worst part of this stage is when he pee's on strangers feet!

This just happened to me and my Bear last night!!! He was extra excited when I came home last night (probabely b/c he had me around non-stop on vacation for a week) that when I knelt down to greet him he raced over (wiggle wiggle wiggle) and leaked while we were petting. I'm so glad I found this thread! Makes me feel better. I'll ask my husband to make Bear go potty right before I come home and see if that affects it.
