peed in my bed, why??!! Anyone have this happen to them. She was a rescue, I dont know if it is because she was mad at me or what

It can be because of anxiety or the puppy is marking the territory. It isn't because she's mad at you.

When potty training I highly recommend you keep them on a leash at all times in the house. They will not potty when they're only 2 feet from you and this keeps you in control to take them out every 30 minutes with the command "lets go potty". If they don't potty outside within 5 minutes, bring them back inside on the leash and try again in another 30 minutes.

You have to be consistent.

Also, keeping them on a leash also is proper leash training for them.

This is what I have done with all my dogs. I slip it around my ankle actually so my hands are free to cook clean do laundry, you know all the glamorous stuff I do. LOL

Peeing on the bed can be an issue with territory. Did your H just leave the bed, and she just get up there? Then I would say definitely a dominance, this is my space stay out thing.

Was it a real squat and pee, or was it I am soo excited to see mommmy and be in her bed ooops thing? I have a lab who is 4 and she leaks. We give her medicine for it, but it's a problem if we forget where she lays there can be a wet spot, and sometimes it's a lot, and god forbid she get excited, and not have taken the time to fully empty her bladder, which she does when she is doing her "I'm so happy Lab Dance".

Our puppy did this, too. Peed RIGHT.ON.THE.COMFORTER.

He'd never done it before.

We think he was "marking". He hasn't done it since, and he's strictly an outside pottier now.

DS's suggestion about lashing the dog to you is a really good one. They mention that in almost all of the dog training books and videos we've read and watched.

ETA: He's also 7 mos old.

it was real no happy dance peeing. Husband hadnt been to bed yet. This dog is a female.

Deeply Scared posted 4/29/2014 14:58 PM

Then I would keep the bed and furniture off limits until she's housebroken.

Are you crate training?

Kalleigh posted 4/29/2014 15:37 PM

My son had just left the bed we were readin.

yes we are crate training. should she go there if she pees? she is in there at night and when we are gone. Sometimes she is so naughty I want her to go in there other times :). She is a challenge, we rescued her and I think she was neglected with food and love. We have had her since April 4th.
She has gotten Sit and shake down pat,, needs lots of work on staying DOWN off the counters and us. She probably thinks her name is Rylee DOWN.

And the peeing thing, doesnt do it a lot, just a few times, but its been when she had already been out and right in front of us.

Well I wanted to post a pic but I keep getting the red X

I wouldn't use her crate as a form of punishment, her crate should be a happy and comfortable place for her...somewhere she wants to go.

If she's having accidents than that means she didn't get it all out on her potty break outside. She's young and needs to be walked on potty breaks alot

Kalleigh posted 4/29/2014 16:20 PM

could be because it was raining and she doesnt like to be out in the rain, BUT when we are in the shower she is halfway in there.

This is all great advice. I'm trying to train a 7 month old puppy right now, and getting super frustrated. I had a Pug when I was 18/19, and he was super easy to train...this one, not so much.

Williesmom posted 4/29/2014 17:27 PM

When I had puppies, I would take them out every hour, on the hour.

You know you've done the job correctly when the dog can tell time!

Jrazz posted 4/29/2014 17:30 PM

Well our pugs (NOT easy to train) were about a year old before they grew out of their puppy phase. We adopted them at eight weeks.

And she had just been outside and went potty

We thought our little girl was really difficult to housebreak (peed everywhere) but it turned out she was having constant UTI's. Because she's a pug, there was a part of her anatomy (the breed has a ton of congenital issues) that was a little wonky and she had to have surgery for a "tuck." After that - zero pee pee problems.

I think that keeping your girl off the furniture until this resolves is a good idea. Make sure you have a vet who is thorough and compassionate.

Sure it was the dog? Maybe husband blame-shifting?...

Kalleigh posted 4/30/2014 08:56 AM

no accidents last night, but I wasnt home. and sometimes she is really good when i am not home then i come home and she is like a naughty little kid.

This am between 6:30 and 8 when I left for work I let her out 3 times, making sure she went. she went all but one time

itainteasy posted 4/30/2014 11:56 AM

Our puppy doesn't like the rain either...he hates to get wet on a walk. We have to walk him Every other hour at least (unless he's sleeping--we let him sleep when he crashes ).

I bought him a rain coat last weekend. And this week he has needed it!

(yeah I'm THAT kind of doggie mom--he has jackets, coats, sweaters, even his own snuggie)
