Puppy - weak bladder?

Hello, my puppy will be 16 weeks old on Monday. He’s an Alaskan Malamute and has been fully toilet trained since around 12 weeks, however, he wees with excitement sometimes and sometimes he will get caught short and run to the door whilst leaving a trail of wee behind him 😳🤦🏼‍♀️. This is quite a rare occasion, it doesn’t happen often - the weeing with excitement happens fairly regularly although thankfully with no visitors indoors, not in the house!

It has been a long time since I had a puppy so I’m not sure when to expect him to have more control. The vets didn’t think his excitable wees are anything to worry about. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks!

Yep, Welsh Springer who still, at the age of 10, pees every time someone comes in he hasn’t seen for a while.

Get a good enzyme cleaner and change all carpets to hard flooring!

He is only 16 weeks... Give him time.

Some dogs will excitement wee well into adulthood.

The rest of it, he's only 16 weeks so I think you're expectations are still quite high. It's totally normal for them to have accidents until they're one or older.

Mine often did excitable pees well into adulthood. Still does if very very excited.

yep had a dog like this, he had accidents all his life, we had to take him outside every 30 minutes when we had visitors.
