Chouette has twice urinated when excited because one of our kids came in and made a fuss over her. Earlier today our daughter showed up and when she walked onto the porch, saying "Hi!" to Chou in an excited voice, Chouette got up and began wagging her tail madly and then started leaking - all over me. We just scooped her up quietly and deposited her outside, where she finished up to praise. I have to tell them to cool it when they come, so we can get past that hurdle. Normally I don't even talk to the puppy when I first come home, but I guess I've never passed that knowledge on to my kids. Any of you have any other ideas for dealing with this?
