Bella went 4 days without an accident. She peed on the floor this morning since I took to long looking for her leash. about 2 weeks ago she peed on my bed . and she did the same thing tonight but in 2 separate places. this has to be changed NOW My comforter is so big I can't wash it at home so I was unable to wash it last time she peed on it and now she's peed on it again. My bed is starting to smell because of it. I have to constantly scrap up the money to take it to the laundramat which is about 20$ each time. I am so frustrated. Why does she keep peeing on the bed. I take her out on a regular basis and she was doing good for 4 days. I know she will have accidents but why on my bed. each time she pees on the bed it gets on the comforter, the sheet and both mattress pads to take everything to the laundramat would be around 50$ and I can't afford to do that everytime she pees on the bed

Simple answer...
Managment!
Supervise closely and don't let her on your bed in the first place.

As far as training goes same advice you've already been given. Vet visit to run tests checking for a uti and house training 101 (see the the housetraining sticky thread and your past threads). Good luck!

How many times do I have to tell you she has already been checked out by the vet.. and I have been doing the housetraining Hence why she hasn't had but the 2 accident in 5 days. I can't supervise her constantly it happened the moment I got up to go to the bathroom.

I'm aware she has been to the vet, but the vet needs to run a urinalysis to check for uti. It's not something that can be diagnosed with a physical exam. As you are having such a huge issue with house training this puppy, it's something to check, not to mention peeing on soft stuff like a bed can be a sign of a uti. Futhermore, I haven't been hounding you to do a vet check for a uti...;)

Puppies need to be supervised at all times when young. If you can't she needs to be crated or put away in a puppy proofed space. When I was housetraining my puppy, I actually took him with me when I needed to use the bathroom if he was loose.:thumbsup:

She has already been tested for a UTI it was negative. she's been doing good for the past few days. Normally if she does have an accident she will jump onto the floor not pee right on the bed. I didn't take her since my bathroom is right beside my bathroom, (master Bathroom) so I didn't seem the need to and since the only accident she had today was the one that was my fault because I didn't get her outside fast enough. I just wish she would not pee on my bed It is expensive to have all my blankets and everything washed every time she does it. We were planning on staying home tomorrow to save gas and everything but now we have to go to the laundromat and I have to sleep with a comforter that has 3 pee stains

If you don't want your puppy peeing on the bed, don't let her sleep on it...period. Use a crate, x-pen, or whatever else works. I know what it feels like to be strapped for cash, but if spending $20 to do laundry is that hard, do you think having a puppy is the best idea? I've been following your posts, and seems like everything is basically out of your hands most of the time due to finances or transportation. I'm not trying to be mean, just concerned. Has she been checked for vaginitis? This can have the same symptoms as a uti and is very common in female puppies.

There is no reason to be mean.

It is just very challenging on our end to give advice, and you say you're following it, but return with problems that contradict that fact. You were advised to monitor your puppy at all times and you admit you slipped up and left her alone and she had an accident. It happens. You just need to continue to be diligent.

Honestly, my dog peed on my bed once too. I have no idea why he did it - he only ever did it once. Dogs can be baffling, and housetraining is hard. Watching your dog all the time is very hard. But it must be done.

I really hope you will stick around and continue to take the (fantastic) advice you have been given here. I am interested to see how Bella progresses, but due to her issues and your limitations I have to admit I'm a bit concerned for her as well.
