Puppy excited-submissive peeing! :(

So company came over today, and Odie, who has not had an accident in nearly a week AND who had just gone potty, peed all over the floor. I'm sure he was just excited, but is there any way to stop this kind if stuff from happening again? I've also seen him pee when DH gets on him for chewing on something he's not supposed to, or when he gets scolded for jumping up on the furniture.... Please tell me it's just a phase

His house training is going super otherwise. Strangers over and a scolding a make these little accidents occur.

well, I would not be too harsh in scolding him try a simple "No" and "how about this" and see how he reacts.
As far as visitors, I would ask a friend/neighbor to come over, go back to the driveway and then come over again. If Odie starts peeing, I would pick him up and take him outside to the pee pee spot.
Rose did it only one time when my sister in law surprised me with a visit, I myself was happy to see her and I think my excitement transferred over to her.

Liza did this for quite a while, but they tend to grow out of t. I wouldn't make a big deal of it, just pick him up and get his outside. We always tried to get Liza out before guests would arrive, but even then she would piddle...but like I said, it gets better.

Okay.. That's a relief! We aren't harsh at all, DH does have a deep booming voice though. Odie tends to roll onto his back in the "belly up pose" and piddle on himself. I guess it's a good thing in a way--he's not dominant at all. As far as the excited pee pee, I'm SO glad to hear it won't last forever!!

I think you have two different things going on there- excitement peeing and submissive peeing.

The excitement aspect has good chances to resolve itself, just asks the guest to ignore the pup, ignore the pup's peeing (remove pup, bring him to adequate potty area, clean out pee without saying anything to pup).

The peeing with the belly up when caught doing something wrong is Odie's way to "apologize". As you noticed, men tend to have deeper pitched voice than women as well as different body language; therefore they are more intimidating to dogs. To diminish the submissive peeing, it might help if your husband tried to change his voice a bit when he verbally corrects Odie or just redirected Odie to a more appropriate activity without saying anything.

How old is Odie ?

Aspen did this for a while...maybe until 7 or 8 months old. I learned to put her leash on her and take her outside to greet guests on the porch, so if she peed, I could just hose it off. She is almost 11 months now, and it hasn't been a problem in quite a while. It seems mostly a puppy issue that they usually outgrow naturally.

Nervous submissive peeing

Yep, that's my Bella.
She'll be 9 months on the 13 th of Jan.
She used to to do it every time I came home from work at around 5-6 months of age. She's pretty much over that now.
I found offering her a biscuit, grabbing her leash, & saying let go for a walk distracted her from the submissive gesture.
So now we go for a walk as soon as I come home from work.

BUT, when someone new comes to the door we can expect a small puddle.
We had friend visiting from Europe overt the Christmas break. When they first arrived Bella peed on the floor. After that she was ok.
It is a submissive pee, with her belly almost on the floor.

It just seems to be that first meeting of new people.
