Reasons Why Does My Dog Pee on My Bed

Why does my dog pee on my bed? While having your dog sleep on you is one of the greatest comforts in the world, nothing is appealing about a wet bed.

Many of your dog’s behavior can be linked back to its history as a wild pack animal. We explore the basic causes for a dog peeing in the bed.

Urinating Due to Excitement or Stress

In younger dogs, a dribble of urine is expected when they are overly excited. The behavior will likely disappear as your pup progresses into adulthood.


Medical Issues Causing Your Dog to Wee

While it is less likely to be medically related, we should mention urinary tract infections can cause dogs to urinate by accident.



Old Age & Incontinence

If your dog experiences incontinence, urine will, unfortunately, leak involuntarily. This is common in senior dogs and is experienced both while your furball is sleeping and awake.


Training Issues

Did your dog complete house training as a puppy? We all know the saying, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. While your pup may appear to be house trained, peeing in your bed is simply not an option.


Is Your Dog Allowed on the Bed?

If your dog has lived harmoniously with you and has only recently peed in the bed, consider if there have been any new stressors.
