• In the past 2 days my B has peed on our bed twice and the carpet once. She is 8 months, and has never peed in the house since the 1st day we got her. And one of the times was at 4am, which is why I'm here at 4 am, reasesarching what it could be! We leave the patio door open, therefore she has free range to go outside, and we take her for walks too. The last time she peed on the bed it didn't really have a strong urin smeel, so that's why I'm thinking if it could be health related. I am going to bring her to the vet tomorrow, but any suggestions to see what it may be might help when I bring her into the vet.


  • Does she have any other symptoms? I'm not sure I would go to the vet if it's only that she's pee'd in the house twice. If there are other issues- she's lethargic or drinking more/less that usual or displaying other unusual habits… then there might be some concern. But she's only 8 months; it might just be an accident. Keep us posted!


  • I think I've read on here that it isn't uncommon for b pups to forget housetraining around Mia's age and then have to be retrained a bit…I'm sure the breeders will pipe in...


  • Are you sure she is peeing - catch her in the act?

    I thought our dog was peeing in our bed- pillows, then caught her licking the pillows!

    Yup it is pee, there is that yellow color to it. I called the vet this am, and I am going to bring her in just in case, they said it could just be a bladder infection. I thought it could be that my parents went on vacation (they live here with us in the winter) and she really misses them, but I doubt that would explain the 4am accident this morning. I will update once I get the results from the vet


  • Yes keep us posted, I hope she doesn't have anyhting serious, and its just a mistake on her part.


  • If she is peeing more frequently and having accidents in the house, my first thought would be UTI.


  • when I reseached it in the middle of the night online, it all pointed to some type of bladder/UTI, or maybe stones or crystals. So hopefully the vet will be able to figure it out and quickly too, I can't keep washing my feather down 2 times a day lol…


  • One of my dogs – that's the problem w/having more than one -- peed all over the carpet in our classroom on Saturday.

    We had another family over to watch the Seahawks {lose to Green Bay}, and I had left to pick up on of the kids from a basketball game. When I came home, Darren was {very unhappily} cleaning it up. It was a LOT of pee.
    I have no idea exactly when and certainly no idea why the dog did that.

    Now I'm a constantly on edge, trying to watch every move of all three dogs, to see if it happens again.
    We've had people over before, so I don't think it was related to that so the questions are, Was it a fluke? Is one of them ill {UTI}? Was it Gypsy -- is she losing control?

    Argh, I HATE mystery pee!

    Hey, just wait till they are really elders… with a house of 2 16+, 1 15yr old, and one 13 yr old... mystery pee becomes a way of live... sad but true...


  • well I brought Mia to the vet, and was it ever fun to try to get a urine sample, as soon as the vet tech tried to put the cup under her unrine flow, Mia was looking at her as if to say "what the heck are you doing, I'm trying to pee here!" the prelim test showed ph of 5 and normal gravity I think she said, but I asked to send it to the lab for further testing just in case. Today she was fine, so maybe is was just a case of nerves, better to be safe than sorry I think 🙂


  • We went through the same thing with Stick when he was about 10 months old. Out of the blue he peed on our bed three different times in the span of two days. I felt that because it was on the bed it was a behavioral thing so we ramped up play time, kept him exhausted, and he never did it again. To this day we can't explain it. I have to say, there's nothing worse than having a peed on bed! 😞 Even after cleaning it obsessively it still faintly smelled for weeks.


  • Now that I have elder B's.. I learn the value of rubber sheets… I have great rubben back fitted bottom sheets... they are super.. not only for the accidents, but also for dust.... I got mine at QVC and they are well worth the price. They wash great (takes some practice to get them to spin however with the rubber backing).... but no more wet mattresses for us!!!


  • I have had two different Bs "wet the bed" while they were sleeping. This only happened once in a great while–but neither had any sort of infection at the time--it just happened. Then my spayed female started peeing in her sleep--but she was about 7 or 8 when this started, and her vet put her on hormone replacement therapy, and that stopped the inadvertant peeing.


  • well the vet called and said everything looked fine, so I guess it was just a case of the nerves or something, but I am definitly keeping my eye on her, becasue she does go drinking in the middle of the night, she must be eating lots of chips or something salty in her dreams lol


  • My girl did the same, pied in the sleep. But there was nothing wrong. I contacted the vet and did a urine sample. Moja was almost 7 month at the time. I think they are like children and pie in there dreams. Moja have luckely an own bed…


  • You Know I was just about to say, I had a Cocker Span. years ago, that peed sometimes, and it was when she had bad dreams. Don't ask how we know she had bad dreams, we just did. She was an animated dog, when she was having dreams, and the bad ones were easy to spot. She was blind after the age of 2. Very hard on her,and us. We never yelled at her because she was so scared, but she stopped sleeping outside of her cage after that. (on her own)

    These are a must for people with puppies sleeping in the bed as well as older dogs. Apache used to pee in his sleep occassionally when he was younger and after the first time it happened I ran out and got some. It's much easier then trying to get the urine out of the mattress.

    Yup…. amen to that... 😃 and it is really the older dogs more then the pups.... of course my pups rarely sleep in bed until they are at least a or two... and then it is only sometimes, but they get "bed time" before I put them in the crate for the night and then "bed time" in the mornings after the have been out to potty. My elders sleep in bed all the time....ggg... and get up and go all the time..ggg... or are carried out to go....


  • You know, come to think of it… I carry puppies out from the crate to go potty... and now have come full circle and carry out my elders to go potty...ggg
