    I have a male yorkie that's 10.5 months old and he pees all the time whenever he get excited expecially seen other people that he knows. I know this is a comon problem for male doggies but when do they stop? How much longer do I have to wait until he stops this?

    That's probably submissive urination. The best thing you can do to help him get over it is socialize, socialize, socialize. It's going to be a matter of self-confidence.

    I tried everything. His only like that to people he knows. I always tell my boyfriend to ignore him and not call his name because if he does he gets overly excited and then starts to pee everywhere.

    I am pretty sure I read somewhere that there is submissive urination and excitement urination. Both of them are beyond the control of the dog. The only thing I can think of is to have people great him very calmly and have him sit before the people will greet him.

    I do know that two people I know have wonderful well trained dogs and they both will occasionally pee if they get too excited. I think this is also more of a problem for small dogs?!

    If it's any consolation, it tends to gradually stop as they get older. And it is more common in the small and toy breeds.

    My Cocker Spaniel will pee when she gets excited and she's 3 yrs old. She will only do this when my mom or hubby's mom or someone she really knows and gets excited to see them come in. Sometimes, I'll know to bring her over to the ceramic tiling when she greets them :D

    Puppy peeing from happiness!

    I have 5 month old golden retriever ( Amy) and she also pees whenever I or my husband comes home. We tried pretty much everything... greating her calmly, commanding to sit, ignoring her completely, so she could relax a bit. Nothing works so far. First of all - greating her calmly doesn't work, because once you touch her, she just goes wild and overly happy! RESULT- pee on the floor. Commanding her to sit works until you bend to touch her - onces you do that, she pees all over you ( because from the sitting position she lays down and then you can imagine what happens!). To ignore her is one way to it, but then she gets all upset... So, between three options - getting the dog's pee on the floor, getting the dog's pee all over yourself and getting an upset dog who will still pee on the floor once you make peace with her - what would be your choice?!!!!!!!!! :D I chose the dog's pee on the floor for now! ( as far away as possible from the carpets!!!!!!!)

    The most rediculous thing is that she not only pees when we are not home for long hours, but she also pees when we go out for half an hour for some shopping. Hmmmmmmm... Is this something that puppies do and hopefully it will go away? Or it is something that will go on forever? :) Tricky question! :p

    The large breeds in particular generally grow out of it.
