My pups sleep up at the head of the bed, between the two pillows...I need them close, to train..I don't allow the foot of the bed to be slept on.
I hold my hand on the pup for 5-10 minutes often, till it falls asleep...many times it will get a belly rub or a repeated pat on the side.

If the pup wants to stand up on the bed, to find another sleeping spot, it is brought back between the pillows.
- and sometimes covered up with the blankets
If it just stands up and circles (for example or is restless)...we go outside right away.
- we have a young pup for 4 weeks accidents from day1 through the night ever

Hi and welcome. I'll just say that if our puppy was peeing on our bed, he'd never be allowed up there unsupervised! That means he'd sleep in his crate, and if he was playing up there he'd be watched 100% of the time. A mattress can only take so much pee before it's time for a new's cheaper to just watch the dog! He's not peeing on your mattress to be spiteful, so the way to get him to stop is to take him out when he has to pee. With young pups who aren't completely housetrained yet, that could mean intense supervision. Also, that pee has to be cleaned up REALLY well...if he's able to still smell it, it's probably quite tempting for him to go there again.

Good luck! Sounds like a very frustrating problem.

I agree with the above statement.

My boy is 6 months old as well. He has never had an accident on my bed and although he has been relatively good lately, I can not say his potty training is at 110%

I would advise keeping him crated so he can learn his place. It may not be dominance. It may be the start of it.

When you are home and not in your room, close the door.

I would bring him out an extra time or two.

Is he lifting his leg, or peeing while sleeping?

Alot depends on the situation is this at night when your sleeping? During the day and he's just running around? Few things come to mind.. One crate the dog if you can't watch them, period. Close the bedroom door if thats the only problem area. If he's peeing at night then one he loses his privilege of sleeping in bed. Two watch the dog! Six months is young and dogs can do things that are extremely dangerous ie eat socks, get a blockage, ect. Next make sure your completely cleaning after he pees. Using a cleaner with natural enzymes. If he's soaking your mattress it may be hard. But if your dog smells pee it's hard to get them to learn they can't potty there. Good luck!
