Puppy Peeing on Herself When Lying Down

How do I get my 6 month old Pit mix puppy to stop laying down and peeing on herself. She only does it if there's something under her in the house. She will not sniff around to go pee. She just lays there and pees, but she will get up to go poop. How do I get her to get up to go pee outside and stay off a pillow or towel?

Your puppy seems to be engaging in bed wetting. This is not a housebreaking problem, but rather a medical problem. Your dog seems to be showing signs of sleep incontinence. You need to take your dog to the vet immediately for medical attention.

Your puppy is very young to be having this problem so it definitely could be a health problem - even something needing some type of surgery so be sure to take her to the vet as soon as possible.

If she has already had a visit to the vet you may be able to call them and they would tell you if they need to see her or if they could give you a prescription for her.

Since she is going out to poop then it stands to reason that this is something beyond her control.

Keep her on washable/changeable towels until she sees her vet.

Hug her, tell her how pretty she is and give her a dry towel to lay on.

Puppies do not like to mess where they sleep or eat. There seems to be a bladder problem here. I would take her to the vet.

Healthy puppies don't pee on themselves. I'd go to a vet straight away :(

Bring her outside once an hour and right after she goes in the house punis her when going potty inside. My pit mix is 9 weeks old and this worked for her though we are still working
