I am at my wits end with our 9 month old male bulldog. He is crated at night with absolutely nothing in the crate (if we put even a towel in there he will pee on it) and does fine with no accidents. Lately if left alone in the gated kitchen he pees on the little pad he lays on. He will actually pee and lay in it ! We’ve had bullmatsiffs before and never had such training problems. What am I doing wrong ????
Make sure to take him out before bed and make sure he doesn’t Have too much room, he should only have enough space to lay down, if too much crate space he is more likely to pee, always take them to the same place to go to the bathroom, encourage him when he goes in right place. our 6 month male is doing great.
Our female Bully Meia did this same exact thing when she was 8 months old!! She even went as far as urinating on e couch and in our bed!!! Took her to the Vet and she had a urinary infection and was also going into heat. I know it is VERY rare but males can get UTI’s too. The Vet told us that they will urinate in strange places when they have infections like that. This will sound odd but, does it have a real foul oder? If it is stronger than usual……he could be trying to cover it up by laying in it which would indicate a infection? When Meia did this on the couch and in the bed, she would try to lick it to cover up the scent……if we didn’t catch her right away!!
Hope you get the poor little guy figured out 🙁
I’ve heard of this happening from another person with their young Bulldog not too long ago. Sorry to say we didn’t really find any sure solutions. Our Bulldog, Lily, would often pee on her bed or towel in the cage overnight, but we found that after limiting her access to water about two hours before bed stopped it. Shocking to hear about any dog laying in their urine to say the least! Maybe he’s getting too much water and not going outside often enough?? I’m sure you’ve wore yourself out looking for answers on this one. I’m gonna plan on posting this question to our facebook page for you tomorrow evening to see if we can get any advice from other Bulldog owners.
How often can you get home to let your bully outside?
