Actually less is more -- like when you first come home. Just plain IGNORE him ... this isn't to be mean, lbut rather just to give him time to get himself under control and relax a bit.

When he begins to leak -- take the pressure off. Just ignore him and then do a command he knows -- like "sit". Then you can say "good boy" and walk off. Don't approach him to give him pets until he's settled back down.

Be careful that you aren't inadvertently winding him up with your voice. don't moan and "oh you POOR baby" him -- Keep it short and business like. Break his behavior down to "sit" -- then "good boy"! but don't commiserate with him. WAtch your tone of voice -- you want to be encouraging but NOT loud and whiney and "oh pooor baby -- NOOOOOO don't pee!!!"

Do a Google search (or any search engine) for (type this in):

"Nothing in Life is Free" dog training

By giving the dog something constructive to do and then rewarding it you will build his confidence and NILIF generally builds their confidence.
