Default I understand now!

A while back, i posted a question of y does penny only pee on my bed and pillow? She is potty trained and good at it. Well i found the answer. If any of ya'll is having potty problems this may help. In this article this portion is what i think penny is doing.

The number one reason dogs pee on your bed is the exact same reason they chew your dirty underwear and socks...it smells like you. In the wild dogs, and young dogs especially, encounter numerous different predators. When they encounter a predator, they have two choices. They can fight or they can run, and neither of these is extremely beneficial for the dog. So, to avoid running into one of their foes they try to cover their scent. In the wild (and often on farms or in the country), dogs will roll in the nastiest things, like poop or dead animals. In your house, they roll in your dirty underwear and, you guessed it, your bed. Young dogs especially have to be careful, so they try to cover the smell of their urine as well. What better spot to hide their scent than in the scent of their protector and guardian. Your bed smells like you...a lot...so your dog is hiding his scent in your bed. By peeing in your bed, and hiding the smell of his urine, your dog is making himself feel less vulnerable and less exposed.

Here is the link to the whole article. There is also another link for similar references.

Thanks for posting this...that's very interesting. In fact Mylo doesn't pee on chairs, people, his bed, in his crate and is 99% toilet traine but has still peed on my bed...and particularly my side of the bed. Makes sense.

So, does this mean that the time Bug (my poodle) did that, was he feeling especially vunerable maybe? I thought he and the cat were bickering over pillow rights or something. I hate to think he feels the need to hide his scent.

What can I do to help him feel more confident and secure? Poor little guy - I am really glad I didn't fuss at him, though. He always seemed comfortable and outgoing, must have missed something.

Interesting link, thank you very much for posting it!

If people have trouble with their dogs doing this---shut the door to the bedroom.! Such an easy thing to remedy! I assume the dog is doing this without the owner knowing.
