|LOL I'm sorry, but that is funny....lol.....
Ok, stop laughing....
I would think he is telling you he needs to go out.
My first suggestions would be to remove his water earlier in the evening, and perhaps try crate training?
Also, you could just try training him to stay off the bed, or close off a room for him to sleep in.
|HeeHeeHee...oh my goodness...I couldn't help but laugh!! I know it's not funny, but OH the visual you get from that description!
I agree with Willowsprite, he's probably tell you he has to go out. Pick up his water at least two hours before bedtime - and gate him or crate him at night.
Definitely let us know how it works out!
|Were you dressed like a fire hydrant? Or a tree?
I will say my boy tried to pee on another dog once. When we met them on our walk the other dog just stood there, frozen. After a time of sniffing and trying to get her attention he just walked around and lifted his leg. I stopped him before too much happened, but let's just say that was the end of that visit.
|Their is a technical name for this behavior, peerainusonyou, in your dogs case this is the peenocternus version and typically can be resolved by the following behavior modification techniques.
technique 1. coat your head with cooked meatbefore going to bed, the dog will lick you first and wake you up
2. put plastic sheets on your bed wear swimming googles and a face mask while sleeping, this will deflect the liquid to a sufficent degree so as to allow for no taste infraction.
3. do not sleep on the bed it must be the bed
4. This can be resolved also in one of 2 other ways; one at night when you wake up to relieve yourself get the dog go outside and set the correct example in the yard. Monkey see monkey do, unless you live near monkeys then they may interupt the lesson, with what may resemble laughter. If that doesn't work you may want to p on the puppy while they are sleeping this is very similar to biting their ear if they bite you.
|Great name! My Bailey is nearly 5 months old and I've got to tell you, you just put my day in perspective. I've been the victim of constant nipping today but I'll take that over being peed on!
At 5 months old your Bailey should definitely be able to hold it all night, mine can. Our Bailey is crate trained and as suggested above we do take away his water after 8pm and take him for one last potty break before putting him in his crate. We don't hear a peep out of him until he hears my husband getting up for work the next morning. I was not inclined to crate train when we first got him but I'm so glad we did - we all prefer it this way, including Bailey. Good luck!

Not necessarily, all dogs are different. For those at 5 months, you're blessed as far as I'm concerned because Clyde was a nightmare to housetrain. I probably shouldn't even say was because he still isn't 100% but he had the worst time overnight despite literally measuring every cup of water and removing it early. It took him to about 6 or 6 1/2 months to be completely reliable overnight.
Admittedly, it's hard not to laugh about getting peed on but it sounds to me like it might be a little bit for attention more than that he has to go out. I'm assuming you had a big reaction to getting peed on which probably made peeing on you all the more exciting for Bailey and apt to want to do it again. Remove his water earlier and keep him out of your room and close the door and see how he does overnight again for awhile.
If it makes you feel any better, and I mentioned this in another post, Clyde doesn't lift his leg when he pees so I tried to teach him so my boyfriend would quit teasing him for peeing like a girl dog. I tried to go out and lift his leg for him and I just got peed on too. As far as I'm cncerned, he can squat forever now
|I can laugh only because it's not happening to me|
|OH MY OH MY OH MY OH MY OH MY OH MY............... that is all I can say!!! Maybe you should sleep in a shower cap.|
|Ohmigosh! This sounds like more than just a need to pee, because he's making it personal by going on your head, although the limiting of water at night could help. Are you doing obedience training? It might help to reiterate who is sheepie boss in your household. Also, if you want him to stay in your bedroom overnight, I read that attaching a dog to your bed with a leash lets them be near you, but unable to get up on the bed with you. I never had to try it, as Oscar is too hot to sleep anywhere but on the cold tile, but it might keep Bailey on the floor. And I think you've put all of our puppy troubles in perspective....|
|I liked Rogers Dad's answer. Very cute. Sounds like he may be marking his territory. They do get jealous you know. If it was me, I'd put my husband on that side of the bed. lol good luck.|
|My wife just let our 6 mo old OES sleep outside her crate a few nights ago, and woke up with Rainn standing on her face. I thought that was pretty funny.
Your story is comedy gold.
|Well, I am glad that everybody got a good laugh! Your responses are hilarious! I have been keeping him in the kitchen blocked off by a baby gate. That is what I did when he was a really small puppy but I guess we are going to have to keep doing it. I really would like him to be able to sleep with me but he doesn't seem to mind the cool tile in the kitchen to lay on. And I definatley don't mind the wiz free nights!! HA! My alarm going off just doesn't seem so bad anymore now that I can compare it to being wee weed on in the face! Thank you for all of your helpful and humorous responses. I am still very curious to why he did this though. ????? That is very odd behavior!|
|That is funny. It is definately more than having to go out. He is making a very bold statement. Sorry, it is funny. Where you sleep outlines who is who in the "dog pack" I stopped letting Lucy sleep with me b/c she is so big and pants so much that I never slept when she was in bed. She got very ANGRY about being kicked out of bed. She would act like she was going to bite me when I said off. I suspect that that has more to do with it than anything! Good luck! Hope you stay dry!|
|Yikes...can't say this has ever happened to me from one of my dogs. Now, my sons are a different story, lol It used to be duck & cover with them everytime the diaper came off. I hope putting him back in the gated kitchen helps with this!|
She got very ANGRY about being kicked out of bed. She would act like she was going to bite me when I said off.
Lol. My Lucy did the same thing! Growling and snarling like she was going to get aggressive. One day I challenged her and got in her face when she did (I know, horrible idea) and you know what I got? Licked to death. That's when she lost her edge
|my dog peed on my hip recently while i was sleeping. Only i found out it is because my bed is not a place he is allowed really. He wanted to let me know that he wasn't happy about that. When a dog does something to your head, it is a sign of dominance. It's what they would do to other dogs to show them they are the alpha. Also, when a dog raises his nose at you or little dogs, try to get higher than you on the furniture it is for this same reason. They are trying to prove their alpha status. You should nip it in the bud right away and let them know that you are alpha. Never let their noses higher than theirs, don't let them on the furniture until they are well trained and only if you give them permission. Dogs actually want structure. They will go through dominance phases every couple months. You need to stay consistent and put a stop to the dominant behavior, before they control you. Little dogs are notorious for this because people think they are soooo cute. Trust me, I have one and I feel bad being so strict, but it will be worth it in the end. Unfortunately I think my Maximus is also going through puberty and starting to mark his territory. I will be getting him fixed ASAP.|
|thanks for the laugh but I sure need a few laughs right now so hope you will forgive me|
|It's horrible your pup pee'd on your head. I would be furious!!! As with any canine living in your home you have to establish who is the boss. Do NOT let your dog sleep in your bed!!! The boss (pack leader) sleeps in "THE" bed!! (YOUR BED!!!) You don't have to be mean to establish rules in the house, just fair and stern, just like with kids. Dogs actually feel more secure in a den like enviroment, a kennel for example while sleeping. You can feel secure about your pup and your HEAD if you you use a crate at bedtime. I have 3 sheepies and none of them have the full roam of the house over night. The kitchen is a good place with a baby gate. I use crates, in a room. The crates are, at this point, never closed. But all 3 sleep in there own "spot (crate)". I love my babies but sheesh No WAY on the pee on the head thing!!!|
