my pup pees when you go to let him out of the crate if he's been in there awhile, sometimes just a little, sometimes quite a bit. Do they grow out of this, is there anything you can do. He's almost 6 mos. and pees if you're gone from 2-6hrs. just depends. He's a chi-papillion mix.
How long have you had pup? Try not to pay any attention to him except to let him out to potty. Praise him when he pees outside, its hard to tell the social behavior unless im there. He should grow out of it. I once had a dog that would pee if you constanly praised her for being a good girl, because she became very excited with attention she would pee.
try making your entrances and exits less emotional. dogs will feed of your emotion. wait till he calms down when coming home. leave him in the crate when you come home till he settles. do not discpline him for peeing in the crate. you will only make it worse and ruin the crate as a safe place.
I had a shepherd that would pee from excitement until she was a year old. her nick name was pee pee girl. lol. It would happen mostly when company came over and she just wanted to say hi! She grew out of it. I too would make coming home a little less of a big deal and sort of act aloof for a little while, before letting him out. What breed of dog is it? If it is little enough to carry I would scoop him out and carry him outside as I did that when Aisha was really little. She is now 5 months old and totally housebroken even when excited.
your other post about UTI's is not working. it won't open. generally with urinary tract infections the animal will pee more than usual, it is sort of an urgent type of having to pee. they may pee in inappropriate places, and you may see a tinge of blood in the urine. however with puppies, it is often very difficult to tell if it is an infection or them just being puppies. my girl peed so often and everyhwere that i too thought it may be an infection but it turned out to be just puppy stuff. it was along time since i had a pup so i forgot alot. i pet sat for a pup who had a problem with excited peeing. i would just walk in the house, leave the back door open, and let her out the crate and walk straight to the door . all the while completely ignoring her. if i even looked at her she would pee. that is the best way to deal with excited pee'ers. ignore them until they have pottied. my golden mix was also this way and i would have to have my mom let him out of the house when i got home so he wouldn't pee all over the house when he saw me. i was younger and did not know what it was or how to correct it. thank god he eventually grew out of it by the time he was 1 1/2 years old. if you are concerned about an UTI the fastest way to find out is drop off a urine sample to your vet. they will check it out and let you know. it is a cheap test and will put your mind at ease. you can collect the urine using a baby food jar or pie plate. make sure whatever you catch the urine in is clean so it doesn't screw up the resluts. as for the discharge around the penis......it is common in young unneutered males to have this discharge. if it is really bad have the vet check it. after they are neutered it usually disappears. lots of luck :)
