Male puppy seems to leak a lot!

Is it normal for a 11 week male puppy to leak quite a bit everytime I take him out to go potty? It' like his bladder is either weak or he gets excited, but he always leaks a little. Do those tummy bands with the velcro fasteners work? This is my first male dog, so any assistance would be wonderful.

Hi

At that age my Cooper seemed to be peeing non-stop. And I mean like every 10 minutes. Is he really just leaking? I used the belly bands/bad boy bands and they worked great for me!

The one's I got were from a breeder here on the forum. They are made out of a man's sport sock with velcro on 2 sides. I would just stick a mini-pad on the sock and was ready to go.
Good luck!

Doc peed all the time when he was a puppy...but when is he leaking? Do you mean he can't hold it until you get outside or leaking whenever he gets excited....I'm not exactly sure what you mean. But, like I said, Doc peed A LOT...either on his pad, outside, on our carpet if we didn't catch him, on the blanket, pillow, etc, etc......and we were really trying to keep an eye on him!!! He's MUCH better now but it took a lot longer than with our female, Izzy.

billy seems to go non stop when i take him for a walk-- he can hold it for four hours or so, and when i take him out, he takes one huge pee and then basically marks about 4 or 5 times (same spots EVERYDAY)

Nick is slightly getting better but if you come home, take him out of his crate, or even just get excited about a treat, HE LEAKS EVERYWHERE. His pee just drips out! He's great about going outside (he goes everytime) he just gets too excited. Judy and Beverly, Does this stop?

To my knowledge, Doc has never "leaked", but I'm not positive about that....

Next time you take him for a vet visit, mention it just to be sure something isn't going on. But some dogs are excitement pee-ers. One thing you may want to try are some obedience "tricks" to build his confidence in case it comes from submissiveness or lack of confidence. Just the basics, like sit, wait, come. Oh and for fun, try roll over, shake and high five.

I would have him checked out too, just to be on the safe side. Some puppies do pee out of excitement and grow out of it.

I have no experience with the belly bands but they are typically 2 strips of flannel with cording or elastic (1/4') to put the pantyliner/pad and velcro closure, really simple to make, do you sew? (I'm guessing from your screen name)

Male puppy seems to leak a lot!

Thanks for the information, how do I find the puppy belly bands/bad boy bands? Can you help me with that?

Puppy leaking urine

I took him for his first visit yesterday to the vet, and we discussed the leaking problem. He basically thinks that his bladder muscles are not fully developed yet and when he gets excited or his bladder is full this can happen.
So I'm going to try the little bands on him as he is a healthy little boy and already ringing the "Poochie Bell" for us and this is a wonderful sign in our books!
