I'll just start by saying, no this was not a puppy showing "excitement urination" or "submissive urination". I was at my friends house when their 7-8 year old male got up off the couch where the wife was and jumped up on the recliner with the husband and was peeing all over him. He wasn't leaking/dribbling either, he peed on his shirt pants and the recliner. No dominanting/challenging type body language that I noticed. Just kind of "out of the blue". We were all calm and relaxed watching a movie when this happened. Has anyone ever seen this before? Thanks

Oh, I might also add that this dog is a full time house dog and is house trained very well. He is left alone daily when the couple go to work.

Maybe he wanted them to pass the popcorn..Just joking.I have seen dogs pee on there owners when they had to go out to relieve themselves and the warning and asking from the dog was put on hold for a bit.I don't know if this is what happened in this case that's just the few case scenarios I have seen.

Might want to make a trip to the vet's office for a physical check up first and foremost.

My parents 2 year old female lab has a problem controling herself and recently was curling up, relaxed and calm with my dad in a chair and peed all over him.  They're now working closely with their vet to identify and treat potential physical causes, such as weak bladder control and the like.

Is the dog neutered?

Well this dog normally does ask. He has a place in the hallway that he goes and sits and looks at the owners and they know to let him out, but not this time. Maybe his age is starting to get to him and he can't hold it quite as well as he used to. I know it's not really funny, but I can't help chuckling about it. You should have seen the husbands face when he realized the dog was peeing in his lap, LOL!

RLHAR, I believe this is the first time it has happened, but I'm sure the owners will have him at the vet if it continues. They are very good about taking him to the vet whenever needed. Muttlover, yes this dog was nuetered as a pup and is now 7-8 years.

I had a cat that would pee all over everything including me every time see would get a UTI. she found a way to tell me she wasn't feeling, pills and in a day or two she was all better.

The dog needs to go to the vet for a complete check up.

Is the female lab spayed?

Sometimes spayed females will become incontinent after they are spayed. 

As for the male, I'd have him checked out as maybe there is something weird going on there if this is the first time it ever happened.

I agree with a visit to the vet for this dog. I do have a funny story of this happening to me. Years ago when living in San Diego I adopted a young male German Shorthair from The Humane Society (about 18 months old). He bonded very quickly, was a great dog. We were at a group OB training and the trainer was speaking to the group (we were in a circle around him).  My boy looked around then lifted his leg and peed  on my leg! Obviously he was marking/claiming me; I was wearing shorts and it all ran down my leg into my sock and shoe-had to do the whole class with a soggy, urine soaked sock/shoe. Thank goodness no one was really watching me, we were all listening to our instructions.

I have seen an un neutered dog lift his leg on his owner, while we were chatting on the sidewalk.  I was horrified at the time.   Not sure why a neutered male would do that, although it is interesting he did it on the man.

I think sometimes it is the dog trying to send a message to the master.

.I have a friend whose toy poodle did not like her husband.

Every week or so , the poodle would make sure it went over to her  husbands black work shoes by the bed, and lift his  leg and pee right into his shoe...

Obviously trying to send a message.!!!

I have seen both cats & dogs send those kind of messages to their owners, usually into empty shoes....but the funniest, kind of touching story I can think of was when we picked up Wolf from the airport, (for those of you who know of the Wolf von der Haus Maul story, you'll know why it's a little sad), we received his crate at Philadelphia airport, right next to the end of the runways, where the departing planes turn around & do their engine checks....extremely noisy, kind of freaking me out-it felt like your eardrums would rupture- he came right out of the crate for me, & I took him across the car lane from the freight building to relieve himself, he looked up at me, like, 'Sorry about this, but....' & he lifted his leg & peed all over my leg! A fine Howdy-do! But, with that look, I knew what he was doing....he was telling me in no uncertain terms...'Look- you are my person & I gotta make sure I can find you again!' He went right to the vet, who made sure he was back to good health, & we never had that problem again! jackie harris

We have a neighbor who has two undisciplined female beagles that she allows to run loose whenever she is out in her front yard.  We had a friend sitting with us on our driveway with his two so-so disciplined mini-schnauzers on leash.  She came over to say hello having never met him.  Of course her two braying hounds charged the mini's and all hell broke loose.  When everyone calmed down and she had taken her beagles home she came back and sat down on our drive to continue to visit.  The male Mini immediately hiked his leg and peed all over her foot.  The mini's owner was horrified and the beagles mom was pissed but I laughed my butt off.  Guess he told her!
