5 month old loving male

Our puppy is nearly 5 months old, he has excellent temperament, well trained, well socialised and eager to please and learn, sometimes he gets over excited and wee's on people's feet!
He doesn't do it all the time and not with every one he meets. It seems to be when he gets over excited and more with men than women!
He never does it with me or my boyfriend even when I make a massive fuss when I get home from being at work all day, we have tried to get people to not over fuss him but he still wee's on certain guest!
Any ideas

Thanks Tracey

Re: 5 month old loving male

Do you have a crate? A thought would be to keep him in a crate until after the excitement of new people coming in the house is over. Then letting him out when there is less excitement.. make sure people just ignore him and to only pet him when he is not excited..

Thanks for the reply, he's got a crate but he even does it in that when certain friends come round, he also does it when we're out and about, I'm hoping he grows out of it! Does any one know if he will???
He's been house trained since he was about 11 weeks old, he's very confident and fussy with every one he meets it's just certain people and even strangers who's feet seem to get it

Re: 5 month old loving male

I believe they grow out of it. You can't scold him for doing it as it is not on purpose. Bella used to do this as well when she was a pup, she is two now and ONLY does this when one particular friend of my bf comes over, she just loves him so much she can't contain herself. When he comes over, instead of him coming in to say hi, Bella goes out. They say their hellos and all is fine.

Re: 5 month old loving male

Remind me to wear my rubber shoes when I come over. ha ha

Actually, I agree with the not letting him get all excited and greet people when they first come over. Maybe have him on leash and ask people to not really pay any attention to them for awhile when they first come over.

Re: 5 month old loving male

LOL, we had to deal with this when Mikayla was a pup - called it "Excitable Tinkles"...they just get so darn excited! Our solution was to have her greet visitors more running for paper towels :)

The biggest challenge has been getting the people to IGNORE her when they "how am I supposed to keep her calm when YOU'RE cranking her up!"

On another note, what you could be seeing is submissive urination if it's only with certain people..dogs can read people better that we read dogs...maybe yours is sensing a more dominent personality...I wouldn't worry though, the more people he meets, the better it will get, and don't forget, he's still a baby :)

Re: 5 month old loving male

Ha ha thank you all do much for the advice and support, I will try it all and fingers crossed eventually no more wee on friends shoes ha ha, I never scold him and I know the feeling I'm trying to keep him calm and they fuss him that much :-(

It's hard because he is so fussy and friendly and adorable, me and my Bf make a massive fuss when we've left him and he never tinkles or our feet.

I've started practicing today we meet some friends who he always tinkles on because he loves them to bits I asked them to not get him over excited but we had wet feet ha ha, but I walked him round got him to sit and then walked him back and the second greeting no tinkle so fingers crossed

Once again thank you all for the advice and support
