My Cocker Pees A Lot!
Nervous or Excited Cocker Spaniels Often Pee
My cocker spaniel urinates all over when he gets happy, or excited, especially when some-one greets him or when we try to play with him. This has become such a problem that we're thinking of giving him away.
Does anyone have any advice please?

Hello Jenny, It would be such a shame if you had to give away your cocker spaniel because of this, but I understand your frustration.
Let's see if we can help you.
Subservient (or not very confident) dogs are usually fairly nervous. This nervousness can affect their behavior in many ways - one of which is involuntary peeing.
Your dog really can't help it - he simply gets so excited he pees.
I fully sympathize as this can't be easy to deal with - I guess eventually it wears you down, huh?
I'm assuming you've tried the usual potty training techniques, but it won't harm to direct you to them again. Please read this article, if there's anything new in it, why not give it a try? Or why not do it all again from scratch anyway?
The recommendation below, given by one of our visitors, is good advice. If re-training fails, try using a Belly Band on your dog to keep him dry - they look quite cute too.
Please do let us know how you get on - I'd love to think it was enough to persuade you to keep him.
