Sister's Dog peed on my bed

I'm looking after my sister's dog, a male neutered 1yr old terrier and today he pooed in my dining room and peed on my bed. We have a 12 yr old male crossbreed who sleeps on our bed and also near where my sister's dog pooed. My sister said her dog would whine if he needed the toilet but he didn't give any indication of needing out before both incidents. He's been out for most of the day as the weather has been lovely so I'm perplexed as to why he did this and would appreciate any help to sort it out - we have him for another 3 weeks!

Not an expert, but I would think he's either very stressed or he's putting his mark on the places where your dog's smell is strongest.

I wouldn't allow him so much freedom to wander in your house and don't expect him to whine to go out. He may do that in his own home but he's not in his own home.

He's still very young so I'd be inclined to treat him like a new puppy and put him in the garden for a wee or poo at frequent interval. I think you have to think of it as training him in your house as you would a puppy, rather than treating him like an adult dog, which he isn't really.

Make sure you clean the place he's pooed or weed very thoroughly. Johnsons make a spray called 'Stain and odour remover'. It's amazingly effective and will stop either of the dogs going back to the same spot.

I'd be confining him to one or two rooms downstairs and popping a stair gate on too

Thanks for your replies. I've blocked access to upstairs and let him out more often and we've had no more incidents thank goodness!
