  • do you use puppy pads? and there is a spray that you need to get and spray it were she pees. you cant smells it but she can.American bull dogs are very smart dogs we breed them. was she house trained and just started doing this or has she never been trained?

  • Get her a CRATE. When you are sleeping she will be in her bed. Walk her before you go to bed and make sure you teach her the word, potty time.If she is using your couch for the toilet, you need to leach her and hook her to you. When she looks like she is going to potty, you head for the door, saying lets go potty. Don't let her pee anywhere but out side. Clean your couch with an enzyme cleaner that takes the smell of urine out of the furniture. "out" has one at the pet store and is safe for everything you can spray, ie carpet, furniture,blankets, walls, floors, even your bed. Make sure her crate isn't to large or she may pee in it. Don't forget the praises when she goes outside. Even treats are good for Good job well done.

  • I wish I could tell you, but I wound up adopting an older dog because I didn't want to deal with that stuff... Heck, I raised two kids, I didn't want to go thru a dog too..

  • HOw much exersice is your dog getting? I dont mean just walking around your yard - I mean daily walks or runs with your or your husband. The more your dog is outside the more it will know to go potty outside - that is how we took care of our dog's potty issue and the more tired your dog is the less i think you will have this problem
    Good Luck
    p.s watch the show "it's me or the dog" she is an expert with dogs and she address's this on her show with LOTS of different people!!!!

  • Sounds like doggie is seeking revenge.

  • It can also be a territorial thing, I wouldnt let her on the bed any more, our pup did that twice, now she isnt allowed in the bedroom.

    Dogs don't think that way.
