My husband and I have recently adopted a 3 yr old English bulldog. This is our second bulldog rescue. Our first rescue passed away in January. They said this one was potty trained but when we first adopted him he consistently went in the house, and I'm not talking marking, I'm saying completely unloaded his bladder. We adjusted our schedules to ensure he was going out enough and that fixed the problems almost instantly. However, he can't seem to hold it through the night. We exercise him later in the day so he doesn't over heat. Let him out at least twice before bed and monitor his water intake after 8:30 (as we go to bed about 9:30). He pees on his bed, not in the room, but in his bed. He is not allowed on furniture or in our bed. We don't crate him as he is terrified of them (he was crated for a while before he went into rescue). Everything we read says they won't go in their beds because it's like their den, but he does. Its not every night. He is old enough to hold it through the night and I just don't know what to do to help him. Any suggestions?
