Why does my dog pee every time she sees me? The Ultimate Guide

Why Does My Dog Pee When Excited?

Excitement peeing is most often found in happy, hyper, young dogs that may not have full bladder control. Dogs frequently outgrow this form of peeing as they mature and emotionally calm down.

It can become worse if your dog is suddenly awakened or startled, and then gets very animated (such as when you come home while they’re taking a nap).

How to Stop Excitement Urination

To help your puppy with excitement urination, maintain a calm, quiet demeanor and be consistent.

  • Try keeping all playtime outside or on a specially prepared area of newspapers and puppy pads. This way, if there is a little accident due to overexcitement, it isnt a big deal.
  • When theres an accident, just as with submissive peeing, dont reprimand or punish your pup. Simply clean it up quietly and leave the puppy or dog alone. Be sure to clean up any stains thoroughly, preferably using an enzymatic cleaner, so the dog doesnt smell the urine scent and think its appropriate to pee in that area again.
  • Give your puppy treats when it pees in the correct place and keep all greetings to a minimum. You may even want to ignore the dog when you arrive home. Does this seem cruel? Its not really, as it gives your dog a chance to calm down on its own. Ask guests to do the same.
  • When your dog pees while out on walks, give it praise and treats. The same goes for peeing in designated areas. All these things should not only help your puppy break its habit of peeing when excited but will also help you to cultivate a calmer, more confident dog.

    Signs and Identification A dog that displays this behavior will typically show other submissive signs, such as tucking the tail, looking away, licking the lips, and rolling over on the back. This should be differentiated from other conditions involving inappropriate urination, such as excitement urination. Excitement urination is somewhat different, occurring when a dog is overly excited, usually when the owner or visitors greet the dog. Affected dogs wag their tails and do not display submissive postures. Though submissive urination occurs most commonly in puppies, it can happen with any dog at any age.
