Angry puppy pees on my bed!

i rreally wanted my pups to be able to sleep with me, but they pee on the bed whenever i leave them there.they even pee when were playing with them on the bed. i know the best solution is to not let them on the bed. (they lost the privilege) but WHY do they do it? i have an older dog who is extremely jealous and growls at them. is it that? can it also be because of scolding? i dont scream or ell. but they're fairly timid ! asking for your thoughts. thank you

Puppies don't have much bladder control, it's probably nothing more complicated than that!

They probably don't like the idea of jumping off the bed to get to the potty. 1.5' can be a long ways down depending on age and size. And besides that, who has time for a potty-break when you get to play around on the bed?!

They are too young to be house trained well enough to leave them on the bed. They are also too small to be able to comfortably get down from the bed to let you know they need to go potty. (A puppy this size can break a leg jumping off a bed!)

Also, puppies generally like to pee on absorbent surfaces.

So there is nothing wrong with cuddling them on the bed for short times, but be sure they went potty before you bring them up on the bed and don't keep them there too long.

Puppies this young need to pee very often, just after waking up, after eating and drinking, and after or even during play time.

Remember, NEVER yell at or even scold a puppy for a potty accident. You will only frighten the puppy and teach them to hide when going potty. Accidents are the result of the human not properly managing the situation. It is your job, as the human, to take the puppies out to tinkle really, really often. They cannot tell you yet that they need to go. Also, they do not understand that it is "wrong" for them to potty inside, so you cannot blame them.

Follow these directions for house training them and they will be reliable in a few weeks or a couple of months.

Good luck with your little babies!


Oh, one more thing, try to do a better job managing the situation with the older dog as well, so the older dog is not frightening the puppies. That does not mean you should scold your other dog, which would just teach the older dog to hate the puppies. Instead, use baby gates and other management strategies to prevent the puppies from bothering the older dog and make sure your older dog still gets plenty of your attention too.

they are great at getting on and off the bed. they havent had a problem with t since i removed the frame. theyre actually much better at using the pads than before. and the pad is a foot or two from the bed sometimes they use it and go down bu they mainly pee while im asleep!

i manage the adult dog very well the pups are not scared whats so ever of her. shes a chihuahua and they are already bigger than her. they think shes playing. the chihuahua just gets mad that ALL THE TOYS arent hers anymore. and i never scold them the closest i gett to scolding is firmly telling thrm "NO" for what ever they did. i realize theyre puppies but they barely started doing it a week or two ago when i moved my room around.

Then they are not old enough yet to spend the whole night on the bed with you. They simply cannot "think" in the middle of the night... "oh, I need to pee, and should get down in the dark and go over to the pad and tinkle then get back up on the bed." That's too advanced for them at this age.

One thing you can do is put them in their crate(s) at night, right next to your bed, or their pen with a pad, if that is what they are used to.


Now keep in mind, that if you are pad training them, you are going to have a whole other, and harder step, teaching them to go outside, if that is eventually your goal. You see, once you have taught a puppy to pee inside on a pad, he/she will have this habit and will pee on anything absorbent indoors if a pad is not available.
So if you want to house train them to the outdoors, you are better off doing so from the start.
Read the link I gave you in the last post, for house training help and also some discussion of pad/paper training.

i agree with the whole " they dont think it through" but i leave a light on so that its not dark ( i myself hare the dark).. and theyve never peed on the bed before. unntil recently. im looking for a crate i dont live near stores with many crates. going looking today! and they do great ith the pads and the outdoors without the confusion. they know if theyre outide go. but if theyre inside theres a pad. since they ARE puppies they do make mistakes and pee else where about half the time. but they dont seem much confused. i dont know if this makes a difference. but theyve peed on US before. on your laps while were holding them and when wer're laying down. the vet said it could be that theyre trying to let my other animals know we're theirs?
thank you for your response!

Makes sense. :roll eyes: When you're not doing anything fun or interesting they feel safe to take a potty-break without missing anything cool that you might do.
