So Oscar's been with us for about a month and a half now, and he's been great in regards to housetraining. He only ever peed in the house on his first night here, when he was scared and disoriented. However, last night he peed in the house again! It looks like a marking behavior because it was on the corner of our TV stand. I thought marking generally happens only with changes in the household, but nothing new has been introduced.

The only thing I can think of is that I've taught Oscar the "up" and "off" command so he's now allowed to go up the bed when he's invited, and he must get off when asked. After teaching him the commands, I've let Oscar sleep with me for a couple of nights, but last night I didn't invite him up on the bed (I wanted a good night sleep, since he hogs half the bed). Around 1AM, when I just about to fall asleep, I heard Oscar get up from his doggy bed and went downstairs. I then heard a stream of water, and thought, "uh-oh". When I get down there, sure enough, he's peed.

Does anyone think the new sleeping arrangement is causing issues? Oscar doesn't seem to be drink much more water then ususal. The amount of pee wasn't that much, I was able to clean it up with Petzyme, and you couldn't even tell. Still, this is an issue I'd like to nip in the bud.
