Please I need help!!! Our adorable Brandy is 2 and a half years old. We understand about the constant whining but we really need some advice on how to control it. We know it will not completely stop as it is part of their “Basset Language” but it is always when we give her attention or every other minute. She gets constant walks, hugs, talks and love but the cries are just too much!!! That’s one issue which we may be able to control. Issue # 2, which is the deal breaker. She would pee every time she sees people from the outside that come into the house. These would be anyone who does not live at home that she does not see on a regular basis. We have to make sure that she goes outside before anyone comes into the house. It seems like she saves her pee to greet a person!!! If by chance a person comes in and she’s in the house, she will let out a zig zag line of pee straight to the person she’s coming to greet. We had her since she was a baby and this was fine at first. The vet said she would grow out of it. Two and half years later, it continues. Anyone else has this problem and what suggestions do you have. Please help!!!

Both of our dogs (male and female) peed when people came over, but it was only when they were puppies. We asked people to ignore the dogs when they came in, because it was sort of an excited/submissive behavior. You'd be surprised how many people CANNOT listen to the simple instruction "please ignore the puppy- he/she will pee all over the place"- lol. Thank goodness they grew up. I'm not sure how people greet your dog- you might give this a try. Good luck!

Make sure your dog potty before you let him be greeted by others. The issue is when they are excited and the bladder is full, they can't control it. They actually dripping not necessary peeing.
