Whenever someone comes home, my puppy pees himself with excitement. Except for a few accidents he's pretty good with the puppy pads and going otuside but when people come home to let him out he pees all over. Any suggestions on how to deal with this? My parents usually are the ones that let him out and I've told them to come in and ignore him for the first 5-10 minutes so he calms down and it seems to not really work.

Someone else had this issue with her dog, and the dog ended up having a UTI. So my advice is to get that ruled out (or in).

Definitely rule out a UTI first, but Bridgette does this as well. She pees when she is nervous or excited and we've pretty much had to ignore her when we get home and take her out immediately.

She's much better than she was, but even when she has just eliminated she will squat as if she's going to pee and nothing comes out...it's weird behavior but I haven't been able to find any advice on how to actually stop the behavior. Some dogs grow out of it. Bridgette is turning 5 years old this year though...
