Hi. I tried searching everywhere but didn't get much luck. I have a beautiful 12 year old Golden named Cooper who is perfect! ;)

My daughter on the other hand is thankfully/hopefully nearing the end of the mischievous/destructive puppy years with her 18 month old boy Sonny.

He is only going to be neutered when he is two so luckily not too far away. The problem we are having is that he ejaculates EVERYWHERE. I have never seen anything like it, it has got to the point where you can't walk bare foot in the house as the tiles are sticky with semen even though she washes her floors daily because of this. Hold on to your hats because the worst is ..... he even ejaculates up to knee height on the walls!!! 馃あ It's definitely not urine and he has been to the vet for a checkup but everything is healthy.

He often comes to mine for a play but otherwise he is the only dog in her household. He very seldom humps things and if he does it's usually his large stuffed gorilla. He goes on regular walks and from what I can determine she is doing everything right but I have never experienced this with any of my Golden's before. My dog always needs a bath after a visit from him because he feels sticky and I'm presuming he's doing the same thing on my boy. :eek:

Please help as we don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance.

I do not think this is ejaculate, but rather smegma. Some dogs do produce a LOT of smegma. I have Heard of dogs that leave trails when they walk. I would see if there is any anatomical reason for this much smegma.

Thank you. I'd never heard of Smegma before so will be doing a ton of research into that. From what I've heard from my daughter, I don't think her vet is the best, I'll suggest she take him to mine and make sure to check everything again.

So.....

If your dog is sticky and goopy - my best guess is the younger dog is full of the hormones and humping, dripping, foaming at the mouth with excitement over visiting you, playing with your dog, etc. And it goes flying when he shakes or rubs against the walls.

I'm willing to wager the 12 year old is getting humped if he's sticky and goopy.

Animals and humans are remarkably similar when it comes to sexual physiology. For it to be ejaculate, he would need to be actually going through the physical act of ejaculating and that would be very obvious to you, as the humans.
Smegma however, can be produced constantly, especially under pathological conditions. It is usually denser and more obvious to the human eye.

He does go bananas when playing here, but this happens at my daughters house and he's the only dog there.

It is smegma, not ejaculate (I can't believe I'm writing this) which is normal dead sperm cells plus a little prostatic fluid and is completely normal for intact males. They produce it all the time. It is greenish and thick. If they run by, scratch, etc it will fling and yes get on the walls. Life with intact males! Neutering eliminates it.

Just did a little research after your suggestion it could be smegma and it definitely fits all the descriptions. Does he still need another vet visit? He went yesterday for his vaccinations and a checkup and everything came up good. My son-in-law did mention the problem and the vet was surprised and just gave the usual "he is long overdue to be neutered" speech, never once mentioned smegma.

Honestly, that is up to you guys. If he is irritated and licking his penis a lot, something could be irritating the penis, which would result in a lot of discharge. Some dogs are just nasty and produce a LOT of smegma for seemingly no reason. Honestly, you could try a belly band? Or talk to a repro vet about this. He could be completely normal or he could have an underlying pathology

I was about to follow that up with a comment as to why you don't notice it very often when you have multiple boys who are neat freaks... and I just can't. LOLOL.
You only notice it on the walls when you clean baseboards or kitchen cabinets then :::BARF:::

I've always had male dogs and have never encountered this before .... also have 2 human boys and a husband but didn't know about this, obviously they're more discreet. :ROFLMAO:

Geez and here I thought living with female dogs was difficult.

With my guys - I really only notice the drippies when they are very very happy and excited. Then they clean themselves, the floor, teeth chattering the whole time.... :rolleyes:
He is a VERY excitable boy so that makes sense. Not one ounce of calm in him.

@colton, apologies because I have nothing useful to contribute here even though I have a male. Sometimes I see that little bit of green on my walls too and I wonder - how does he manage to fling it there sometimes, I just don't understand! Ours are in tiny spots so we don't always see them easily.
Just wanted to thank you and the rest of the members for the humor on this thread today! I really needed it! 馃槄
