Hi, my chihuahua is always LEAKING PEE sometimes larger amounts when you go to pick him up or when he jumps on you, and it started past its sell-by date a little bit and it was avoidable now its more because hes larger. I will hold to sell him if it doesn't stop and i don't want to do that, are there any ways to avoid this, will getting him neuter fix this? Hes about 7 months old.
haha happy squirts!! thats awesome! yeah sounds like submissive urination.
You should definitely help yourself to him to the vet to rule out any physical problems for this. But, some dogs pee when they get excited, when you come home and/or around strangers. It's usually not a immense amount, but it can be a problem. For many, this is a "puppy thing" a way of showing submissiveness, etc. and many outgrow the problem. There is a "stomach band" type device you can buy from PetSmart or PetCo which you wrap around them so that if they wee a bit, the diaper will catch it. You simply let the dog out to pee, later as he comes in the door to come inside, you wrap the belly band around him. Primarily this is used for elderly dogs and/or dogs who do not hold control of their bladder for various health reasons. Neutering your dog will trim down of eliminate male territorial urination.
Have you taken him to a vet? There may be an underlying medical explanation for this problem. It could be anything from a bladder infection to a neurological problem, so the best idea is to get him to a vet.
He might have a urinary infection? Also it is vastly common for dogs to become incontinent and there are meds you can get from your vet. The meds are not highly expensive at all. Before just dumping your dog do a little investigating.
Answers: seems similar to you have a case of the "happy squirts"
Its more adjectives in female dogs, but affects males as well. He basically gets excited or scared (someone towering over him or he thinks hes done something wrong mabie) Getting him neuterd might aid it, but its his way of saying "im a baby please dont hurt me". Its firm to get through, but good luck.
He might have a bladder infection.
Spend some money and budge to the vet.
for godsakes man, go to the vet and ask. why are u trying to find answer here, when u could fix this at the vet. possibly its nothing serious that could be fixed in month treatment time, and here are u, talking roughly speaking giving ur dog away. thats pathetic. maybe the dog is over exited.dont get hold of the dog exited and u will see.
no responsible or loving owner would give up their pet for a problem like this.
if u arranged to have a pet u have to do anything possible for ur furry friend and thats the responsibility all owners requirement to take.and not leave him to somebody else.he obliviously loves u.
Rule out something medical. Bladder isn't grown until 6-months-old, not fully potty trained until 1-year-old. I use a crate* to potty train with, but individual for potty training and then I break it down and store it. I put blankets and a small food and water dish in the crate. Dogs don't potty where on earth they eat and sleep. When they are first little, I only expect them to hold their potty for 4 hours, and then 6 hours, after 8 hours and so on. So when they are first little, I set a timer or alarm clock to wake myself up at night to take them *out. I with the sole purpose allow my puppy in the bedroom* or the living room, only one room at a time. They have to graduate to more space. If I allow them to own full run of the house, it will overwhelm them. I take them out the same door each time. I tie a dinner bell to the door toy with. Do not use a jingle bell as they could get their toe caught in it. So when they are little, I ring the bell for them, and then enlarge the door to go *outside to potty. When they get bigger, I take their paw and whack the bell and start the door to go potty. Eventually getting to the place where the puppy will ring the bell and let me know when they necessitate to go potty. Dogs want to please you, so it is your job to let them know what behaviors please you and what doesn't. So when my puppy go potty, I give her a treat*, and clap, and make a fuss and praise her. So she learn that going potty outside makes me happy. If she have an accident, make a disgust sound close to “tsst” and take her out right away. I never yell* or spank* my puppies. Take them out when they first wake up, after they guzzle or drink, before nap, finish romping, when their activities vary, or when they are sniffing around. Some puppies go pee right away, but may not go poop until 10 minutes subsequent, so wait for the poop. I have a little play time here, because sometimes I give attention to they are done, and they are not. Puppies train at their own pace. While I may have a puppy that hasn't had an luck in several weeks, I don't let my guard down. I don't expect my puppies to be "fully potty trained" until one-year-old. If they have a setback, shake it sour, and start over. I only have my puppies in the crate when I am not watching them. When I am sleeping, cooking, ironing, doing chores, unsophisticatedly when I am not watching her. All other times, she is out of the crate practicing being a "big girl." This is the time I train her how to behave in the house. So we are practicing "no barking", 'no biting", "no jumping", and "don't put away the furniture." I also have to practice "playing inside" so she doesn't knock over things. You must keep the puppy contained by sight when they are little because they don’t know the difference between newspaper and carpet, and you don’t want them sneaking rotten and getting into trouble. Some puppies can sleep through the night around 3-months-old, but their bladder is grown around 6-months-old.
*I use a CRATE to train with. It is the method I prefer, compared to other methods I have tried. I notice that if they are in the crate, while I am doing chores, they are o.k., because the crate allows them to see me and be re-assured. The crate can also be a comfort when stored surrounded by the basement for dogs who live in areas where thunderstorms and tornados are an issue. . However, use the method that works best for you..a laundry picnic basket, a cardboard box, a woof-woof house, x-pen, child gates, whatever works for you.
*OUTSIDE, pee pad, litter box, whichever method you are using. When the puppy is first little, maintain the pee pad, litter box near the food and water dish, so the puppy can put away and drink, and then go potty. You can move it away as they carry older. The pee pad has a scent that smells and initiates potty. Sometimes a pee wad makes a sound that scares some puppies, so you might want to use a litter box whether that happens. The pee pad allows a puppy to walk around, but a litter box keep the puppy in one place.
*BEDROOMS, I use the bedroom and living room for training, because it works for me. Choose rooms that work for you, but watch for rooms that are damp, or drafty. While my puppies sleep surrounded by the bedroom during training, once they are trained, I let them sleep where they want to. They don't have to sleep contained by the bedroom forever.
*TREATS. While I use treats for training, you don't have to. I like Charlee Bears for training (a little cracker for a little mouth,) I use them for training, but once they are trained, I cut final on them.
*SOME PUPPIES will go potty in the same spot respectively time. Some puppies have to be told to go potty. A command like "jump out" for pee, or "go finish" for poop, might work for you, keep saying “go finish” until the puppy poops. This is a polite thing to train if you travel with your dogs. By using nouns, the puppy won't get confused when you are visiting someone, on vacation near you, or when you get to a new home. The command will share them what you w
