I have a 5 mo. old female and she started this like at 3 mo. Anytime guests would come over she pees at the sight of them in excitement...she keeps on until she is DRY. lol I even take her out before guests come and she even goes but still saves some for a few minutes later. Shes getting a little better but still does it..lets say when she sees another dog or person at petsmart she just releases. Do they grow out of it or is there something i should do to help train? She's completely potty trained so that's not the problem. help!

excitement peeing

My Jack Russel never used to have a problem with this, but since she was sterilized, it started to happen every now and then. Apparnetly their muscle control can be affected when being sterilized. It is not that bad and I never get mad at her when it happens as she can not control it. Best is to pick her up and hold her till guests have settled down and she is calmer - it really does work.

Answer to Excited Pee
by: dlyncottn

Yes, we too have that problem. It happens the minute a visitor enters our home. Our Jack is so excited to greet them and the minute they acknoledge him and reach down to pet him, he pees.

I checked with a trainer who recommended the following and it DOES work:

Before the visitor enters, inform him/her to completely ignore the dog for the first 5 minutes(difficult since Jacks love that attention). Tell them not to speak to the dog, or pet him until you give the o.k. Once the 5 minutes or so have passed and your Jack has sniffed the newcomer and settled down, then allow the visitor to greet the dog. Worked like a charm for us. If we don't do this every time, he can't control his bladder with all the excitement.

Disney, What a cutie you are!!!

It has been my experience in the past with Jack Russell puppies is limited, but I would like to share it with you.



The first two Jack Russells that I owned I bought as puppies. Having researched the breed it was important to me to socialize them at every opportunity. So anytime friends would come over I always asked them to hold my puppy and have the spend time interacting with them. I always was verbally (higher excited tone of voice) encouraging them that this was a "positive" experience for them. It wasn't to much later that anytime someone knocked on the door they were right there, waiting for this "Positive Experience" to happen. Yeah you guessed it, through their excitement they would involuntarily urinate on the person holding them. Yes, that is something that I alone created. But I have learned since then.



My suggestion to you is keep up your potty routine with her. When you know that guests will be coming over, contact them ahead of time and ask them, if they will completely ignore her when they arrive. You ignore her as well. If she approaches them ask them to turn their back to her slightly and don't look at her or speak to her. When she is no longer interested in them then they can calmly call her over to them. But have the interaction be very "dull" (simply rub her back for example). You don't want her to go into her "excited" mode.



Thats what I did and it worked for me. Hopefully if you try this it will work for you as well.



Sincerely,

Robbin
