    Exclamation HELP-My Puppy Keeps Peeing in My Bed!

    Ok so i own a 1 year old female sharpei and recently got a 8 week old American staffy male. I am starting toilet training but no matter what i do he keeps having accidents inside.

    Lately he started to pee in my bed. and when he does he does it pretty much right next to me so i roll into it then wake up suddenly! gross i know!

    He stopped doing it for a week but last night did it again. I always make sure i feed them early enough so he doesnt need to go toilet overnight and take his water away 1.5 hours before i bring them in but it keeps happening.

    Need help on whats causing it/how to stop it!

    Thanks

    I would not let him in your bed for starters, keep up with the toilet training, take him out at regular intervals and have him sleep in a laundry or something. He will pick it up after a while that outside is where you need to go!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    If he is 8 weeks old he can't hold it overnight no matter how early you feed or how long before bed you take water away.

    Set your alarm for somewhere between 2 - 4 am and take him out to pee. Rule of thumb is your pup can hold it for their age in months plus 1 hour so a 2 month old Pup can hold for around 3 hours. By making them hold it any longer you can actually cause them to develop a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection).

    You are setting him up to fail if you expect him to hold overnight, that is like expecting a newborn baby not to need to wee every few hours.

    There is nothing wrong with having him in your bed, my pup slept in and still sleeps in my bed 12 months later, I never had this issue.


    Good puppy training resource

    Dogs don't get jealous. They are not people they are animals. Please don't put human emotions on an animal.

    You need to watch him.... My Gus is 8 weeks, as soon as I see him sniffing I go straight outside and take him to the toilet....yesterday I thought he was just getting familiar with smells but nope he needed to pee and as a result i had to clean pee off the carpet.
    Gus is pretty good at holding it when his in his crate I take him out before bed, I also wake up at 2:30am to take him and then at 6:30-7 his a live wire and we go again.

    But when in the house watch him and look for sniffing

    I use to do midnight toilet runs, my two have never been in the bed as I can't stand the dog hair and smell. But they were always somewhere close by (on tiles) so that I could hear them cry. That's when I would take them outside and wouldn't go back in until their business is done. Toilet training is the worst, but the first time they go out by themselves always makes me proud as punch! lol

    Oh and welcome to the forum! You will need to post up some pictures

    I very very much disagree. You can't look at our staffy while the other dog is getting pats from her mum (her owner) and say she isn't jealous of him. =D

    But the years and years of research by professionals agree with me.

    You staffy wants to guard his "Mum" because she is the provider of resources but because he is a trained, balanced dog he doesn't guard her stead he just looks put out.
    Other dogs do guard their primary carer from other dogs and sometimes people for this very reason. It is the same as food guarding and I bet if you gave the other dog the Staffy's food in his bowl he would have the same look on his face.

    Not jealousy.
