    Default need help with one of my bulldogs please

    hello, im brand new to this forum, as u can probably see, and i need advice. I have two bulldogs, ages 4 and 5.....they are both hous broken but the four year old pees on his bedding or mine. i let them sleep with me but the four year old will pull clothes out of my basket or a bath mat and pee on it. they also have their own couch they get to sleep on but he pees on the center cushion....if i crate him, which i have been, he pees on his blanket. if i dont put a blanket in with him he doesnt pee...its like he'll only pee on his bedding or mine...or anything that smells like me....hes done this his whole life except when he was three, he stopped it for a year and then started doing it again recently....i would greatly appreciate any suggestions...i dont want my house to smell like dog pee but dont want him sleeping without a blanket...and i know hes house broken cuz he can hold it and when he does pee on his bed its just a spot...not enough to be like a dog that had a full bladder and just couldnt hold it anymore...any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated...thank you

    Your bully is laying claim to anything he pees on. It could be a "dominance" issue. Either way there is no magic to make him stop peeing on stuff except to remove the stuff from the equation.
    To fix:

    From now on he sleeps in a bare kennel. You might try "horse matting" cut to fit the bottom of his kennel. It's usually available from a Tractor Supply or Farm Supply store. It offers a little cushioning and does not absorb urine/moisture.

    No more sleeping in your bed.

    No more getting on furniture.

    I have a feeling you already knew these answers but were hoping for a different solution. IMO, there isn't one other than monitoring him 24/7.

    This is your home not his...it's time to take charge of it.

    If you have yet to try the horse mat then you might find that it works. If that doesn't work then you might also try a belly band while you are away. It might not work right away but most dogs do not like wearing the pee soaked pad in the belly band and after a few times they get the idea.

    During most of that 10 hour work day he's going to be sleeping somewhere. I'd bet that the "somewhere" doesn't matter as much to him as it does you.
    I wish I had a better solution for your problem.

    Is day care an option?

    Agree with the gang... no bedding in crate. Some dogs just can not have it

    @usmc0331 On Jeffers website, they sell plastic covered mats called "prison beds". They are the same as is used in prison. He would be sleeping on plastic, but it would be softer than crate bottom. I believe @Davidh also uses a similar type,in his dogs crates. If he pees(the dog-not David!) you can wipe it off.

    I think the belly band is a great idea. Is he fixed? Sometimes that will make a difference.

    We use vinyl crate pads in all out crates to make it a little softer for them. We can not put any bedding in Lucy's crate as she will eat it, so she sleeps on the vinyl crate pad only. You boy is a marker, and as long as he has bedding he will mark it. Sometimes they do grow out of it, but not very often.
