Customer: My dogs sleep on my child's bed whenever he we're the bed. It's gotten to the point that I know when my son has wet the bed because the dogs won't be in their bed. Why do my dogs like to sleep in my child's urine?
JA: The Vet will be able to answer your question, plus any follow-ups you may have. What's the dog's name and age?
Customer: Chiko and kol ie both are 1 yrs old.
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Nope

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 12 years experience in practice and emergency medicine and over 30 + years experience with animals in total. I am happy to help you with your question by text or phone today. Please give me one second to review the information you have provided us. I apologize if this reply is later than you expected, I only just saw your question this moment.

Thank you for taking the time to write in today.  That is a very good question.  It is likely that the urine is attracting them because it is a scent of your child.  Dogs live in packs and since we've domesticated them, we've become their pack.  Our scent is something that is very strong to them and is part of the extremely strong bond our pets have with us.  Dogs can sniff out a person based on just a small piece of clothing to help when children go missing.  The urine carries your child's scent.  I hope this makes sense :)

Thank you. I was beginning to think they were trying to tell me there was something wrong with my son.

You're very welcome.  For the bed wetting, I would recommend you discuss with your pediatrician if you are concerned.  Wishing you all the best and feel free to write back here if you have any further questions and I will respond asap. :)
