I have a female dog (Abbie). I had to have her mum put to sleep three weeks ago. Since then Abbie has started peeing in her own bed while I am sitting in the same room. The door is always open for her to go in and out as she pleases, but she still pees in her bed. I don't know if she is trying to show dominance or what, as her mum was the dominant one of the two. Any help is much appreciated.
Your dog is feeling the loss of her mother. There are a few things you can do to help her cope and get over her loss.
I believe this is one way of coping with the stress of the loss and her picking up on your sadness, too. Giving Abbie extra love in this time will do her a lot of good, and will help her get back to her natural habits altogether. I'm sorry for you loss and I wish you luck!
It would seem that Abbie is at loss as to where her mother has gone to.
She right now needs extra attention.
I think you should remove any thing that was her mothers, her toys, her feeding dish, her collar, sleeping blanket, any thing that was her mothers.
Also get Abbie a new bed.
And if you can get another dog, I am sure Abbie is missing the companionship.
I am sorry for your loss.
