    is it possible maybe to take his bed away during the day? you don't want him to get into a habit like that. I had a rottweiler pup who used to do that...he would be standing there...looking at me...and pee on his bed. This dog turned out to be very dominant etc with big problems. I am not saying your dog is dominant...it might just be because he can't hold it. My rottweiler had been allowed to pee on blanket etc at the breeders place, so it was a habit that took some time to eliminate.

    It's during play during the day when he's just lounging around.

    It just happened again this morning and i caught him and growled NO. So this is now the 3rd time in the last week.
    Now you tell us. And "growling NO" just rewards him with attention for the indiscretion. You can actually encourage a dog to go where and when he shouldn't by doing this. Alternately he will hide from you when he needs to go. Either way, growling or punishment not a good idea.

    THE INTELLIGENCE OF DOGS
    look for the bit about the malicious? attention seeking minature poodle. He got his attention alright - his owner trained him how.

    some detailed advice on how to do it.

    Also there are key times for taking your dog outside for a "shitnapiss". After play is one. But ideally - before play is better. After puppy wakes up and before he gets to play is ideal. After puppy wakes up anytime - always go outside... And after dinner time - depending on how old the puppy is, how long but straight away to half an hour is about right to start with. The younger the puppy the sooner I'd take it outside after feeding.

    This advice is both depressing and encouraging...

    And I agree with what Cleasanta says about try taking the bed away or putting it in a room with the door shut so he can't get to it. If you need a place that is his place, where the bed usually is, put something easy to wash like a folded towel.

    And where you ultimately want him to pee is where you should be encouraging him to go, newspapers or puppy pads are only good if you live in an apartment or you're leaving him home alone a lot and you're not planning to have him use the backyard.

    And if you "caught him", maybe you should have been supervising a bit more closely beforehand and taken him out sooner, or taken him out/to the newspaper immediately when he stopped playing?

    When you do take him out to toilet, be as boring and ignore him as much as possible until he has performed. And then be really fun and exciting.

    Hi Barrykins

    Ok - when he's playing on the bed ... take him outside - quick. Don't let him in till he's performed. Loads of praise and treats even for going in the right place.

    I'm wondering if he had just woken up and then started playing and then peed? Ie needs to go out the minute he wakes up. What happens before he gets to his bed and starts playing? Sleeping?

    PS, does the "right place" splash when he pees? My horse - prefered to pee on a surface he knew wouldn't splash - an extremely smart horse. There was no way he'd pee on a hard surface. Your puppy might prefer a non-splash zone too. Just a thought. Theoretically newspaper shouldn't splash but you might want to upgrade to shredded newspaper in a kitty litter tray.

    Hi All,

    I just wanted to let you know that this problem is no longer happening. I'm not sure what sort of phase Barry was in. But it's been weeks and all good.

    We took the bed away from him during the day and much more patient with going out and waiting until he goes.

    There hasn't been any accidents inside also. Barry is now 16 weeks.

    Laundry has been clean for the last few night over night as well.

    Thanks for all your suggestions. It's so goo having such a wealth of knowledge at my finger tips.

    Great to hear Barrykins.

    Puppies do tend to urinate when they are overly excited or agitated, which would also explain his behaviour on the bed.

    Hi Barrykins

    Hmm 16 weeks - 3 to 4 months? Extra heavy duty chewing and teething phase. I'd find teeth stuck in the bottom of my feet for a while.

    Also ideal socialisation and puppy preschool time. Get puppy to meet lots and lots of new people and dogs in lots of different places.
