Dog Behaviour. ‘Dogs peeing when greeting visitors’

With visitors coming and going at this time of year I thought it might be helpful to discuss
‘Dogs weeing when greeting visitors…’
Yes yes this may be a tad embarrassing for you the owner but
this can be Submissive or Excitement Urination.
Excitement Urination - It’s like, ‘I’m so excited I peed my pants!’
Excitement urination is seen particularly in young dogs who haven’t developed their muscle control, so gets better over time. Take your pup for more frequent walks to empty his or her bladder. Try to always greet your dog calmly or not until they calm down.
Clean up their mess and ignore the action.
Submissive Urination -
Again more common in young and also female dogs but also your young dog will be showing what are called ‘Appeasement’ signs - Lowered body - flattened ears, rolling over as well as licking and looking away. It is good to approach these dogs in a quieter, gentler way and from the side.

Again, if urination does happen, do not react verbally or physically, just calmly clean up the mess if need be, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant & Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
