Default Bed Soiling

Not a massive issue..but i did lots of research before buying a pup...all that i read said dogs don't soil their beds.. and i realise my pup is very young, but, she wee'd on her bed yesterday... didn't notice any signs she wanted to go out like i would have normally and again tonight she did not give signs and just wee'd again... Is this normal for pups? She has been fab up to now to toilet training and gets let out every hour.. Just wondered if books i read had mislead me
Thanks in advance
Nic x

She's still awfully young. When you say wee'd on her bed, do you mean in her crate or does she not have a crate and just has a bed in one of your rooms? She probably hasn't figured out yet when she has to go outside. It can take some time. Is she peeing on her bed at night, during the day or both? How often are you taking her out at night?

There are some other members that are much more familiar with pups than I am and I'm sure they'll have more questions and some great answers for you.

No, she doesn't have a crate...she has a water proof bed in the kitchen(with her towel, teddy and plenty of chew toys). Shes very good at going outside although i know she is very young. At night she only has one wee on a puppy pad placed away from her bed... the wee's were in the evening (only 2 of them..one last night and one tonight) when i was in the living area...thought she had gone to get a drink and she hadnt sniffed or given any signs.
She sleeps from 12 - 6am normally and doesnt go out at night as she doesnt whine to go out.
During the day she goes out every hour ..but, doesn't always do anything..and i treat her when she does..she already knows the jingle of the treat jar lol

Like I said you'll get much better advice than I can give you but I'm wondering if those two wee's, which sound like they were close in time on both nights?, were right after or close to dinner?

My only suggestion would be to take her out about 2 hours after she finishes dinner whether she seems to have to go or not. I've been very lucky with these 2 - Emma and Bella were both already housebroken when I got them. In my younger years I had plenty of pups and cleaned many a mess up. Just like with my boys, I'm glad we're all past the potty-training (my boys are 23 and 19 ).

Typically the not peeing where they sleep refers to crate training since the dog would have no choice but to lie in it ... this is the reason crate training often involves working with a space that is just comfy enough for the pup to turn around and lie down in and gradually expanding that space as they grow. Since there is a pee pad mentioned already in use it's possible that the pup is a bit confused and may have considered the bed a target. All in all, young pups make messes. To me it sounds like a normal, average 'uh oh'. Keep encouraging going outside and hopefully the message will stick in the pups mind.

The first could have just been an accident. MOST dogs won't soil their beds, but when a puppy has to go, it has to go. How did you clean the bed after the first time? Perhaps there was still a small (even a slight one) and if there was, most likely she smelt it, and thought she should go their again. You just have to get the bed really clean, and keep taking her into the garden as often as you can. Praise her and make a big fuss when she does 'go' outside, she'll soon get the message.
