5 Year old female Jack Russell has started to wee in her bed, why?

by Ruth Birchall
(St Helens, Merseyside. England)

Hello, could anyone help me with this problem we have.


We have a 5 year old female Jack Russell and for some reason she has started to wee on her bed, she hasn't done this before and when I cleaned her kennel out I knoticed her bed was soaking wet!!

We bathed her and gave her a new bed in the house, left her in the house over night and she did the same thing again, weeing on the bed! I do not understand why she has started to do this. Nothing has change in the household, we are still working the same hours and as soon as we come home she comes into the house so I am at a lose as to why she is doing this.

Does anyone have any ideas or answers for me.

Many Thanks
Ruth

Jack Russell urinating in bed
by: Anonymous

Hi Ruth,
It's unusual for a 5 year old to suddenly start urinating in her bed. I would take her in to the Vet to rule out any medical issues. If there are no medical issues then I would do potty training again starting from the very beginning. Make sure you triple wash her bed because a dog's sense of smell is very keen and she will seek that spot out and wet it again if the smell is still present.
