Dog Has Started Peeing Inside?


A dog next to a baby in a swing.My grandson who was born 5-1-2016 and his mum live with me. My dog has never peed in the house before, yet for 2 weeks now, she keeps peeing on her bedding. Just a few days ago, she peed on my daughter's bed. I don't know what to do.

First of all, dogs never do anything out of revenge! They don't even understand the concept. They do get stressed with new people, especially children, and don't know how to handle that stress.
Second, rubbing their nose in it will do nothing. Dogs don't even mind getting pee or poo on themselves. They roll in poo. Besides they have no idea why you are doing this. It means nothing to them.
Lastly, "spanking" (hitting) a dog only stresses them out more which causes more bad behavior. They will not trust you if you hit them! And they have no idea why you're doing it. They don't understand it at all.


Please don't take bad advice! Dogs get stressed with babies, with too many people in the house, with noise, with strong scents like stinky diapers and with chaos. You have a nervous dog.

Walk your dog more frequently to burn off energy. Make sure there is a place your dog can go to get peace and quiet. Don't let the baby grab the dog's toys and things. Don't let the dog take the baby's toys and things. Keep the floors clean and the laundry done. Use a diaper genie. Insist on order.
Your dog will get used to it.

This is not, I repeat, NOT your dog's fault.

By the way, my cat has never had an accident in the house. Never. I've had her since she was a baby. That's because she is completely confident.


She isn't afraid of strangers or loud noises. I trained her with no physical discipline whatsoever.

Your cat has probably never fetched anything either

This is hard to answer not knowing your dogs age. If your dog is over 8, there are many things that can contribute to this behavior. Diabetes, kidney infection or failure, bladder infection etc, You will need to see a Vet to find out what it is. It is not likely just behavioral.

Dogs and cats urinate in the house for 4 reasons that I've found. 1) They're not house trained or house trained well. 2) For attention. 3) To mark territory especially with new people in the house. 4) Revenge. Yours sounds like it's doing it for attention and to mark it's territory + some revenge on the new people. Crating, keeping to a strict schedule when you take them outside helps. However the age old rubbing their nose in it, a couple of swats and putting them outside is sometimes the Only way to let them know that this behavior is not acceptable.


It may sound cruel to some people, but it works. When they finally realize the consequences for bad behavior they'll hold their bladders until they absolutely can no longer hold it. If they nip at you more spankings are in order. It's a grueling process, constantly cleaning and disciplining. It will take longer with older more defiant or dumber dogs. Good Luck.

BTW, cats will urinate in the house anyway even with a litter box. It'll just be under the bed or in a closet/secret place. I've found this to happen if they get spooked by guests or loud sounds.
