Thank you for getting back to me!
Unfortunately, I mean MY bed.. but she usually sleeps on my bed at night as well.
She is 6, I brought her home at about 2.5 months old. I got her from a friend who had got her off a family found from Kijiji, they could not keep her due to allergies or moving (I can't remember).
She part Dachshund, Beagle, and Collie. She is very well socialized, as she goes to the dog park all the time. She also gets along very well with the other dogs in the apartment. She usually loves people even more though, but ever since we moved into the apartment she is weary around certain strangers, especially men who are behind her. She got bit by another dog 3 years ago on her upper back left leg and so she's protective of her behind.
I set up cameras around the apartment to monitor her behavior. She lie on the couch most of the day and look up at the door occasionally, I guess when there are noises. When she is about to pee, she will always look extremely panicked, run to the bedroom, pee (sometimes just a bit, sometimes more), and then run to her bed.
We do not get angry at her when we get home and let her out right away. Do you have any ideas on what could be causing her anxiety? Just a reminder, we moved into a new apartment July 1st from the house she had been living in since I brought her home.
