Why do dogs pee on the bed and how to stop them

One minute your sheets are fresh and clean, the next you suddenly see your beloved pet wetting the once-pristine bed.

There are three main reasons why your dog may be urinating on your bed: it could be accidental, a signal or sign from your dog, or a medical condition.

It is best to frequently take your dog out to relieve themselves, especially if they are fed dry food or kibble. They will drink more water than other dogs and are more likely to have accidents indoors. A change in diet and feeding them wet food would be recommended to lessen these accidents.

Another potential reason for your dog’s stress could be that something in their environment has changed – perhaps something in your life or theirs. This could be anything from new furniture to a change in routine. Your dog is likely urinating on your bed as a way of expressing stress or anxiety about changes in their environment or simply because they’re claiming their new territory. If you’ve noticed your dog engaging in this behavior, it’s important to take steps to ease their stress and help them feel more comfortable.

It may be difficult to keep yourself from being annoyed by this habit, but our pets need a little patience and understanding. In time, they’ll be able to stop this, with a little help from us.

There are a few things you can try to help stop your dog from peeing in the bed:

  1. Make sure your dog is fully house trained. This means taking your dog outside to use the bathroom regularly and praising them when they go in the designated spot.
  2. Consider any medical issues that could be causing your dog to urinate in the bed. For example, a urinary tract infection or bladder problem could cause your dog to have an accident in the bed.
  3. Keep the bedroom door closed to prevent your dog from entering when you are not around.
  4. Clean any accidents thoroughly to remove any odors that might attract your dog to urinate in the same spot again.
  5. Consider using a crate or pen to confine your dog when you are not able to supervise them.
  6. Make sure your dog has plenty of opportunities to go outside to use the bathroom and is not left inside for long periods of time.
  7. Reward your dog for using the bathroom outside and not in the bed.

It may be difficult to keep yourself from being annoyed by this habit, but our pets need a little patience and understanding. In time, they’ll be able to stop this, with a little help from us.
