House Trained Dog Peeing Inside

My 10 month old Shih Tzu, Molly, was spayed 2 weeks ago. She has been clean and asks to go out goes out normally, but for the past few days she has been peeing on the spare bed where my granddaughter stays. This is very unusual for her. Can anyone tell me why she is doing this?

If this is unusual behavior, and there has been no changes in your house, then a visit to the vet is in order.

Dog peeing on bed.

Step 1
She was probably in pain from surgery or was still groggy.

Step 2
Now that she is over the pain of surgery I would scold her.

Step 3
Then take her outside and when she does pee praise her and give treats.

Step 4
Sort of give her a refresher course in training so it does not become a habit.

Step 5
Make sure she is not sick or still in pain check with your vet.

There could be a few reasons:

  • When a female dog is spayed the operation is painful to the dog. The vet normally has to remove her ovaries or her uterus. This can cause the dog great discomfort.
  • My female dog was spayed at 16 months and for the first week she barely moved around much.
  • The second week she would go out and poop, but had a lot of accidents in the house peeing.
  • It took her about 3 weeks to feel like herself again and go outside and pee and poop normally.
  • Watch the dog and see if she is going to the bed and just standing there and peeing. If she is doing this it is an act of defiance because she is mad at you for hurting her.
  • If she is moving off the bed to go outside and pees this is because of the operation and should correct itself in a week or so. She is having issues holding her urine and her bladder just lets go. My female experienced this too, right after the operation. Her stomach hurt and the pressure of the urine hurt her and she just peed.

  • If you are worried about your dog you can always call the vet. i had two females spayed and this happened to both of them.
