    Default Peeing when Excited

    Well Nero is now 2 and 1/2 and around 80kg now and i have been waiting for him to grow out of the peeing issue when he's excited, however, it is yet to happen.
    By excitement it can range from me opening the back door to see him or just giving him a huge pat, it doesnt seem to need to be much.
    Given his size its generally not a few drops and at times it can reach a metre away if he's in the sit position.
    He is trained to heal beside me and i use this command to avoid the squirt in my direction.
    Any advice..............?

    Is Nero entire or desexed?

    Never heard of a dog that age still excitement weeing.

    Maybe a vet trip is in order to check he has no medical issues that could mean he has trouble holding it in.

    He's still entire, i asked vet on his last visit and he said medically there was nothing wrong that its just purely linked to his excitement. He could also not give me an estimate of when this type of thing could end as he said it varied from dog to dog. Just for the record my vet is also a breeder of french mastiffs so is pretty converse in the large breeds.

    Ahhh ok. I don't know maybe it has something to do with him being entire as well but I am not expert.

    Maybe someone like V+F might be able to give you a better idea of why he is still doing it and a way of stopping it.

    The fact he does it just when you open the door is pretty crazy.

    Ahh ok LOL that makes more sense.

    Bit a hard problem to solve really. Generally most dogs just stop on their own.

    The only way I have tried that did work was by ignoring them when you come home.
    If you coming home isn't anything to be excited about then it should stop.

    Basically you come home and just don't acknowledge the dog whatsoever until it has calmed down.
    You can do it similar to separation anxiety training in that you only leave for a short amount of time (5 minutes) and gradually up the time you are absent for.

    Agree with Crested. My advice to puppy owners is at least three mornings and afternoons/evenings a week ignore the dog for the first 20 before greeting the dog.

    I know he's not a puppy anymore but in this aspect he's acting like it, so whatever triggers the peeing I'd alter. Maybe go out with a treat, give it to him, walk around for a bit then give him a "low key" pat.
