English Bulldog Puppy Pees Where He Sleeps?

I got my English Bulldog at 13 weeks old. He was from a pet store. We weren't even looking to get a dog just went to see the puppies that day, but we fell in love:) Now the store had him since he was 8 weeks so for the 5 weeks he ate, slept, peed, and pooped in a 2 x 4 ft. cage.


Now he can barely turn around in his crate, yet still pees and sleeps like a baby! Thank God he doesn't poop anymore, but it's only been 2 weeks since the last incident. Is this a comfort thing? His bed that I keep outside the crate he loves yet will pop a squat and lay right down for a nap! Is this a comfort thing? Is it too late to reprogram this behavior? My kids and I want him out of the kitchen prison and in the family area so we can enjoy having a dog!

I am having this problem. I watch an English bulldog, 6 months old. I take her out to pee. Soon after we come indoors, before she lays down on a floor bed, she will circle or preparing to lay in her bed, squat quickly and pee, then get comfortable to sleep next to the pee. Her owners say she doesn't do this with them, but I am wondering if they aren't catching her. Why would she do this, it's gross? I don't condone it, I watch her and get her to stop midstream, but other times, she'll be too quick and It's too late. It's embarrassing for me with her owners, because I feel she does this because she is trying to be defiant with me.


I play with her alot, my hands and clothes smell so I know she's peeing in house when not under my care, she doesn't like when I do dig into her mouth when she picks up stuff and I always correct her when she tries to go into garbage, she will get snippy with me, like letting me know that she didn't like that I am stopping bad behavior but I keep at it, saying no and push her away. But the peeing, I can't seem to stop that. I got to get her to stop peeing on her beds before napping. What If she doesn't outgrow this? I have to remove beds off floor when I watch her. Please anyone, who has an answer, please respond.

Did you ever find a solution for the bulldog peeing? We have an 18 month old foster English Bulldog that we are having the same problem with. She came to us not potty trained from a "Breeder/hoarder" situation. We've had her for about 2 months and the first week, no accidents in her crate, then lots of poop and pee accidents, turns out she had giardia and hook worms, treated for both, no more poop accidents but still pee. Still working on pee accidents when loose, then started pooping in crate during the day again, figured out it's anxiety, made sure she has blankets that smell like us and TV is on, and she doesn't poop but almost always pees.


The last 2-3 weeks she started peeing on my couch! this last week I was putting blankets on the couch and she would root and next and then stop and pee, I caught her twice and we put her in a time out in her crate and now she isn't allowed on the couch. She goes all night 8-9 hours sleeping in our bed with us without peeing so I know it's not a health issue (plus been checked by vet) but now today she napped with my husband in our bed and peed in our bed! I think it's a marking thing, but no idea how to solve it!

I have an adult pug that still pees in his bed. He's neutered too.
