    Default Peeing on Bed

    Hi all,

    Some advice would be great!

    I found my 12 wk staffy Barry peeing on his bed. I'm not sure why he's doing this.

    I put the old bed outside and then got him a new bed which he peed on again? Is he marking his territory because it's new?

    Hi...

    Was your puppy partly toilet trained by he's breeder, TBH if i was you i would be talking to he's breeder & asking them if they had started toilet training him etc as most kc registered breeders would have started toilet training their pups & given you follow up advice.

    Are you taking him out when he needs to go?

    Do you take his water away (not in hot weather) a couple of hours before bed time?

    If it's hot and you leave his water, you will need to take him out more often. And don't let him in till he's performed, and name the performance eg "Go Slash" and praise him when he does it in the right place.

    And don't scold him when he does it in the wrong place though if you can interrupt him with a squirty gun or handful of pegs that might help. And do not use bleach to clean up, as this will just inspire re-marking - bleach and old pee smell much the same.

    Sorry barrykins, bad scenario.

    Had a husband like this once, didn't get a new bed, got a new husband instead! Lol.

    Seriously, is your puppy truly house-trained? Or not at all?
    It's odd that he is urinating in his bed, and at least not getting out of it first.
    Also, perhaps you might consider just getting a check-up at the vet's if this persists, just to check there's no problem lurking.

    Thanks guys,

    Steep learning curve for hubby and I

    Breeder was just starting to toilet train on newspaper and taking him outside.

    It's only happened the 2 times so hopefully it was just the Melbourne heat getting to him LOL.

    I've been leaving the water in with him but will take it away tonight.

    Thanks.

    He can't possible be trained at 12 weeks. It takes longer than that. Rosie did this a couple of times when she was lazy to go to the toilet and she just didn't realise the consequence of having a wet bed. I wouldn't worry too much. Just make sure that you do take him out for regular wee's and do it esspecially before he goes to sit on his bed.

    Yeah at 12 weeks I was taking Frosty (or she was taking me) out several times a night. Better that than pee in the bed. I had her next to my bed and a lead from her under me so if she got up, I'd know. I knew as soon as her collar medals jangled and her claws hit the wooden floor and out we'd go, and we wouldn't come back in until she'd performed. Theoretically at 10 weeks they should last all night but in practice - better to get up and go out. I think the first time we slept through was about 3 months.

    Thanks everyone,

    The peeing on the bed isn't during the night. At night, he is good and goes on newspaper. 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.

    Ok, so it's when he's literally just lying around resting, Barrykins?
    Or is it when he's in his bed but is possibly excited from playing?
