    I don't know what is going on with him..is he mad at me or the husband? he is in perfect health...old, but he doesn't pee anywhere else. he can go in and out as he pleases.
    this has been going on for a year ,on and off. maybe twice a week or so.
    i need to buy a second mattress protector..i have to wait for the one to be washed and dried before i can make the bed again.
    i am frustrated.
    :thumbdown:

    any help/ideas would be greatly appreciate..

    oh and caging him will not help, he does it when i am home..!
    and i do have another dog..she is a bully to him. she is younger.
    i am taking off now to my quilt group..will be back to check later..

    They have the mattress protectors in plastic that encase the entire mattress, helps a lot, keeping out moisture, bed bugs etc. Also in the winter helps keep the bed warmer.

    I have known one other person this happened to. Yes, the dog was mad at the owner. I do not remember anything more about it than that.
    I am sorry you are having to cope with this. I understand what you feel for an animal (especially one you have had so long). I do not know the solution.
    Good luck.

    Sounds like he is upset with you for some reason, are you away from him more? I know my Jack Russell is naughty if I'm away for an extended period of time. Hang in there hopefully someone will come up with a good solution for you

    I can tell you one thing, he would pee on my bed ONCE! He would be banned from the house, and certainly the bedroom. If you know he has no health issues, then assume there is something else going on. Jealousy, fear, something. Call in Cesar Milan :roll: :lol:

    This may seems like crazy advice, but I would contact several dog trainers online or in your area...and ask for help. There may be a reason your dog is doing this....and the cure may be simple.
    I liken this to working with my teenagers....whoever understands why the do the things they do...but when you ask another Mother whom has been there...or a professional...knowledge is power....and bam...you find out that dogs and teenagers do have reasons why they do things.
    lol Hope you find the answer, and let us hear from you when you do find out!

    The dog is feeling stressed for some reason, maybe because the other dog is bullying him. Maybe he is marking his territory, telling the girl dog that the bed is his territory. Not sure how you could handle that. Maybe check with the vet.

    I would close the door so he couldn't get in the bedroom and pay extra attention to him. Good Luck

    I feel for you. My older dog pees everywhere. My vet says it is a behaivor thing. Jealous of the other dog. Wants to be dominant over the other dog. Marking his/or hers territory which is you and your husband. will continue doing it forever. you need to cage when ever you can not be in the same room with the dog and watching all the time. also take dog out on a leash to go to the bathroom. also if you see him/ her start to smell or want to mark make loud noise he told me to shake a can on marbles and say NO Bad Dog put in cage he said do this for six weeks to break the habit!!!!!!!! I try but too much trouble for me to keep taking out to bathroom on a leash. good luck. by the way is it a boy dog that is doing this? read your post again. He is a boy and the little one is the girl. Same at my house. Littleone is boss, definately a behaivor thing just like mine. It's really hard to stop. I close off all the doors I can. and do what the vet told me too but the bathroom leash thing is hard for me to do. He said that if you do it for six weeks it should work but if he pees again you have to do it for another 6 weeks!!!!
