You can try a couple of things. When you have company put him outside. Also tell visitors not to talk to him when they come in the house.

Amber used to do that but she outgrew it. Emily used to do it a lot but only once in a great while,if she's really excited. We just try not to pick her up when she gets real excited..

He is wee-wee pad trained and never does it with me, just everyone else. I am the one always with him and the one he prefers, yet I can go out all day, come home, and he won't urinate. As soon as anyone else comes in the house he will urinate as soon as anyone says boo to him.

Have them completely ignore him for 10 minutes. If you can take him to go potty so he can empty his bladder. Once all is calm allow the guest to toss him cookies or a favorite toy but no eye contact and no talking directly to him. The more people you have come and do this, the better! He'll get use to it and it will also fade as he ages.

HHAHAHHAH Nelson just started doing this to my BOYFRIEND!!! Not my mom, dad, or myself. Even though he'll like jump straight up the air, act like he hasn't seen you in 20 years when you come home. He's never tinkled on any of us.

But my boyfriend who comes over only once a week, he's done it like 2 or 3 times now. He'll come in, Nelson is so excited, my boyfriend picks him up and he squirts a little. I was like what did you do squeeze him??? I'm glad I'm seeing someone else experience this, and it isn't just my boyfriend or my dog hahah. I hope or assume they outgrow this?

Now he just doesn't pick him up right away, that seemed to work this past weekend. No squirts!

He is still young.....I truly believe if you implement the suggestions here, he will gain more control in time and eventually this will be a non-issue. Hang in there. :)

Dogs that do not learn to hold their urine or potty on a schedule tend to have more trouble with bladder control than those that do.

I would get a cheap shower curtain liner and wee wee pads to line the entryway and stock up on "Urine Gone" ( with the black light)until he outgrows this phase or improves the control LOL

Sorry, I have never had a dog do thisbut I am sure that the other posters have steered you in the right direction.

I got this problem but just for 1 particular friend and nobody else. It seems Charlie loves him more than he loves his daddy or mommy :smcry: Charlie never really pee when we had company till he met our friend in December. Since then if he came over Charlie goes like totally insane. For the last visit we tried ignoring him for 30 mins without success, me calming him down with no success, sectioning him off with no success etc. We had to put him in his crate as he NEVER pee's there. It's his sacred place (thank god). Do you guys malt's have a special person/guest they just love to death? I also find it funny how Charlie will do anything our friend asks :blink:

tee hee hee...My sweety Tweety has this very problem ONLY with me...Tweety now lives with my mother, but when our family visits 'Grandma's house' --- Tweety hears us pulling into the driveway and then she starts getting really excited...

Tweety then pee's as soon as she see's me even if I ignore her or wait to greet her...she'll squeek and whine and pee, then hop and squeel and whine some more and pee...My mom's feelings are hurt that Tweety only does this when I come over, as she interpret's this as Tweety loving me as her original mommy...

We now call my mom as we get close and ask my folks to put Tweety in the back yard so that she can pee all over the yard instead of the house...

Tweety, btw, has amazing bladder control and only potty's 3 times a day plus has the ability to hold it for over 8 hours when she doesn't have a place to potty.

All potty habits go out the window when our family visits grandma's house, thus we are not as welcome...but we still go to let Cosettia play with Tweety and to get Tweety kisses...a little pee on my clothes each time -- well I love Tweety THAT MUCH!!!

I hope your sweet baby and our sweety Tweety grow out of it, as the others suggest...
