We have a 9-month-old golden retriever puppy that we took in a couple of weeks ago. We adopted him from a family of a husband, wife and two girls age 10 and 12. Our household is very similar, except we only have one girl age 14. Our personalities, demeanors and lifestyles are very similar to the family we adopted him from. With his former family, he was very attached to the man of the house. Since we adopted him, he's attached himself to me, the woman of the house--he's with me wherever I go. Here's the problem: Whenever my husband greets the dog, he gets all excited and pees all over (the dog, not my husband). He never does it with me or my daughter, only with him. We read somewhere that he should try ignoring the dog until he calms down, then acknowledge him. We tried that, but he still pees as soon as he gets acknowledgement, even if it's 15 minutes later. I figure it must be some male authority figure thing, since he only does it with my husband, and not with me or my daughter. Otherwise, he's VERY well trained, and he's never had any accidents in the house. His former owner said he never had this problem with them. Any suggestions on how we can get him over this?
