    Oh, man I remember when that was a problem here!! That's so annoying!! Then you have to clean it up and wash the sheets... ugh. Grace threw up on my bed recently so I totally understand.

    Well, if he hadn't gone in a while and you were playing with him s he's still fairly young that can cause them to have to pee. Also, dogs often pee to mark where they want to claim a stake in the territory and a bed seems a great location to a dog (or often to cats too) -- it is full of deep smells of you and hubby2B!

    Bed-peeing is a frequent training issue for people, if it makes you feel any better! Very rarely I still have an accident in the house with the dogs and it almost always is a dog peeing on the bed.

    Here's some info on why dogs might be doing it:

    http://www.paw-rescue.org/PAW/PETTIP...ip_Marking.php

    And here's one response from Modern Dog magazine, it's a dog bed but the answer is relevant:

    Ask Teoti Anderson
    Q: Whenever my dog, Rose, or another dog at work gets a new bed, Rose will go over and pee on it right away. She does this to her new beds at home, too, where she is the only dog. Why does she do this and how should I deal with it? I've only once caught her in the act but we all know it's her. – Zachariah, Tucson, AZ.

    Dear Zach,
    It may be that Rose is marking the bed as "hers." It may be that somewhere along the line she learned it was okay to pee on beds. We can spend hours wondering why, but Rose can't tell us her motivation! Instead, let's spend our energy working on the real problem: Rose isn't housetrained. She thinks it's fine to pee indoors.

    Before you address the issue, make sure she's really the culprit, or you will spend your time training the wrong dog! I suggest you start from scratch, as if you were training a puppy to be housetrained, and follow these guidelines:

    * Supervise Rose at all times, or confine her if you can't watch her like a hawk. If you give her the freedom to pee on beds, you're setting her up to practice that behaviour. And practice makes perfect! Your goal is to take away any opportunities she has to pee on beds. If you're watching her, then you are in position to prevent the behaviour.

    * Place her new bed on the floor and watch her. If she looks like she's about to pee, clip on her leash and rush her outside to potty. If she eliminates outside, praise her and give her a treat.

    * If you do catch her peeing on the bed, just use a stern "No!", clip on her leash and run her outside to potty. If she finishes eliminating outside, praise her and give her a treat. Never rub her nose in her mess or use physical punishment with your dog. In addition to a housetraining problem, you could cause an aggression or fear problem. If you don't catch her in the
    act, don't bother scolding her later...she won't understand. Instead, work harder to supervise her more closely next time.

    You're not alone in this coconut. Bentley just pulled this on me last week, I was so shocked! I think sometimes it's a way for them to mark their territory, I'd just had Bentley out to go potty not 45 minutes prior to his piddling on my bed. Dogs will be dogs!

    I've been there too recently - I feel your pain!

    On the most recent occasion I didn't notice it until the next morning

    It has happened about 3 times now and everytime I banned them from the bedroom for awhile and then gradually I let them back in. We are going through a bad patch toilet training wise at the moment and it can be frustrating but its worth it in the end

    Molly has peed on our bed twice...both times right after play time....and both times she had been out to pee within the hour before. Argh! Luckily for us the top blanket was a thick puffy comforter and we saw her do it, so we were able to strip the blanket off before it soaked through to the under blankets.

    Molly is 6 months old and usually she does very good with going outside, but today she had 3 'accidents' in the house and normally I would blame myself for not paying attention, but today that was not the case. It's almost like after the first accident she just said 'what the heck, I'll try to do better tomorrow'

    It's frustrating...hopefully this stage won't last forever.

    Oh bless him, it does sound like excitement & remember a young puppy can't always hold their wee, their bladders aren't strong enough.

    Charlie has peed on our bed a few times but thankfully not for a long time. The last time he did it my poor hubby got a right shock, Charlie peed right on his feet but he was so far into his sleep he didn't know until I yanked the duvet off him I still laugh when I think of how he almost hit the ceiling, I think he must have thought there was a duvet theif on the loose
