We have a 6 month old daschund named copper (male). He is the second dog we have ever owned our previous was a pug who has passed away. We love copper, he is beautiful and playful; the kids adore him and so do we. The problem is, he is a pee-er. We have been told it is common for small dogs to pee when they get excited. Whenever we go to play with him or pet him he starts to pee everywhere. This is driving us crazy and is to the place where nobody wants to pet him or play with him because they do not want to be peed on. I am trying to find out if this is something they outgrow or is it possible to teach them to control it? My husband thinks if we get him fixed it may stop, I don't necessarily want to do this yet because we eventually wanted to get a female and hopefully have puppies. If fixing him is the only option then I would rather do that and be able to pet him than have puppies one day. Any advice or wisdom would help, thank you very much.
