Why is My Dog Peeing on My Bed?

2 mins read

It can happen to any breed of dog, and the reason for the behavior is often more significant than the breed. It could be that your dog is leaving his scent behind in your sheets. He could have a medical condition or be anxious, excited or nervous.

Urinary needs are increased by medical conditions such as diabetes and infections of the urinary tract. The vet should be notified if your dog is continually pinning in his bed and other areas. Dogs with diabetes will also show signs such as increased thirst, weight loss or vomiting, as well as lethargy.

A dog with a bacterial infection of the urinary tract will display symptoms like fever, lethargy or licking his own face. The incidence of urinary tract infection in female dogs is higher than that in males.

You might find your dog peeing on your mattress if you have a lot going on in his life. He might pee himself if he gets too excited about being in your bedroom or on your 1000-thread-count bedsheets. Puppy puppies can get this behavior because they are still learning to manage their bladders and become housetrained. You might notice your dog peeing all over the bed when he is anxious. You might notice other anxious behaviors in your dog, such as excessive paw-licking, trembling or hiding.

It is possible that your dog may still need to be trained in house manners if you have recently adopted him. Don’t shout at your dog or rub your nose in his bed if he pees. Instead, show the dog where he needs to go. It can be a distraction for your dog if you yell at him.

If you need help with house training, a trainer is a good option. Your dog may be marking your space as his. He might want you to understand that he is the boss, and that he is your fierce protector. If that is the case, work with your dog along with a trainer to remind your puppy that you are both the boss and protector of his kibble.


You should not yell at a dog who urinates, or defecates, even indoors. This will confuse him, and could make matters worse. Keep in line with your training and work closely with your trainer. Inconsistency is a recipe for confusion and will make your dog less effective.

You should give your dog lots of opportunities to go outside to relieve him. This will help to reduce the urge to go indoors. Make sure your dog drinks enough water and isn’t eating too much salt.

Salt can make him thirsty and cause him to urinate more. You might consider restricting his access to certain parts of your house. If your dog is constantly peeing in the bedroom, lock the door and have someone come to the house during the day.

The trainer can help you change your pet’s behavior if he urinates under your bed. You can use special cleaners to get rid of the smell after your animal has peed on carpets or bedding. They are inexpensive and easy to use. If the reason for your pet’s marking is something, you can discourage him from using them again.

It is easy to stop your dog vomit on your bed. If you are going to be away for a few minutes, lock the door and put your dog in a cage. Most dogs find the crate to be a comfortable and safe place. But your dog should never be confined for more than a few hours a day.

If your dog is young or not house-trained properly, it may be peeing all over your bed. This may also happen in rescue dogs. You might need to start again with house training to make sure this is not an issue. You may have a problem with your dog urinating on your couch or in other places around your home.

Your dog’s mess should be cleaned up immediately. It is more likely that they will do it again if they smell urine in your bedroom. For ensuring that there is no trace, pet odour removers can be very useful.

If you have tried everything, but still are unsure of what to do next, you might consider speaking to an animal behaviorist. They can help you and the dog stop unwelcome behavior.
