Q. My dog keeps urinating on my bed. I've read articles and I've tried everything but the dog is still doing it. What do I do?

Answered By

A. Is she just sort of squatting next to the bed and lifting her leg a little, or is she actually ON your bed? If she is up there, you need to teach her to stay off right away. Keep your bedroom door closed when you are not in the room. At night, either leave her outside the door or put her in a crate in your room. Prevention is the best cure! I am available for consult if you need more help with this--just click on the prompt to initiate one.
