Peeing when excited

I thought I remember seeing a thread about this, but now I can't find it. Piper has had a couple incidents of peeing when she's overly excited. One time when we got home after 2 hours, and another when we had company and she hadn't been outside for about 1.5 hours. Both times she'd been probably due for a trip outside, so our first step is to of course make sure she gets outside before the "excitement". Is there anything else we can do to fix this? Or is it just something that happens regardless. I was holding her yesterday when she peed and it wasn't pleasant. Nothing like a peed on shirt to welcome people into the home. LOL

Yes!!! i posted about this- we have had this problem and so have to manage this. Doug gets so excited when friends visit that he does little exited wees. His recent he has been to the toilet will generally determine how much. Though its generally just a couple drops.

What we do is tell our guests to ignore Doug when they first walk in. If he is in the laundry where we have a baby gate or in his crate we only let him out when he calms down. The excited wee is then avoided as it generally happens right when he goes up and smells the person does the over excitement set in. By giving some adjustment time it allows him to ease into the situation. The hardest thing is getting ppl to ignore him. People think it's rude or something I don't know lol. When I posted about this I was trying to redirect by getting Doug to go to his bed when I hear the doorbell but when he is just THAT excited its very difficult and I don't like using commands that fall on deaf ears as I don't want them to become meaningless.

What Tia and Dave have posted is great. Remember also that SOME excitement peeing in young puppies (and I think Piper is still quite young, right?) Is a matter of an immature sphincter. To some extent, it gets better just with age. But it's still best to keep excited greetings to a minimum!
