puppy weeing in her bed

October 21st, 2006, 12:31 AM
hello, i have a 4 month old pup who wees in her bed and on anything that she sleeps on inside the house. She knows she is not allowed to because she defecates outside. We also have another 4year old female dog in the house. Could she be marking territory or does she just have a weak bladder? Any suggestions on how I stop this? Positive outside reinforcement hasnt worked.

Time to talk to the vet (asap). It could be a urinary tract or bladder infection.

Female dogs do not normally mark their territory. Has she been doing this since you got her or was she house trained and just started doing this?

Yup definitely time for a Vet check. Is she asleep when she's whizzing ? And you are washing her bedding after every incident to eliminate the trigger right ?

Is she spayed? My vet said sometimes this is a hormonal problem (incontinance). However, my female dog did this and ended up being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Please have your dog tested for this right away!

she's too young (IMO) for spay incontinence.:o
