If your dog's urination patterns have been specific to your child's bed, then it could be a sign that they are marking them as their territory. The action often gets repeated and becomes a major problem for you. The best way to reduce this action is with training and behavioral modification.
Dogs urinate on your bed because it hides their scent in your – what the dog considers to be – the smell of their protector and companion. This makes Fido feel less exposed.
Excitement, Fear, Stress, or Anxiety They tend to dribble some urine when they are overly excited or are put in a submissive position. Many dogs grow out of this behavior, but some will need training if it continues into adulthood. Fear, stress, and anxiety can all cause a dog to urinate inappropriately.
If your dog pees on a bed only if they sneak into a room that they usually are not allowed in, or if they walk around the bed, sniff, and then pee, then it's likely your dog is scent marking a new territory. This behavior usually fades away when the territory is no longer new to the dog.
Simple urinary incontinence could be the reason your dog pees on the bed. As with humans, incontinence is more common with age, but younger dogs can be incontinent for a variety of reasons. UTIs, urinary stones, prostate problems, spinal injury, hormonal imbalances, and certain medications can all lead to incontinence.

Your dog may be peeing on your because he or she is trying to re-assert their territory, and marking you as theirs. As always, don't be angry at your dog for displaying this kind of behavior.
Peeing in beds can happen with any dog and the root of the behavior is more notable than the dog's breed. Your dog could be leaving his scent in your sheets for several reasons. He might have a medical condition, be anxious, excited, or nervous, not be properly house trained, marking, or just like your scent.
Territory Marking So if you got your dog a new bed, they might probably pee on it to make it feel and smell like their own or to show that they are taking ownership of it. A dog peeing on other dogs' beds is usually a clear sign of marking their territory.
UTIs (urinary tract infections) make your dog's pee smell bad because it is laced with bacteria. UTIs can also be the reason behind incontinence in some dogs. Since UTIs happen when bacteria enter the bladder through the urethra, it's essential to take your pup to the vet as soon as you notice something is off.
Some dogs might nip at kids who are running by because they're overly excited in the situation. There's also fear-based nipping. And dogs might also nip or bite when they're guarding resources or territory. The key to successful training is understanding the underlying motivations for the behaviour.
Fear, stress, and anxiety can all cause a dog to urinate inappropriately. Changes to your dog's environment may explain sudden stress. However, underlying medical conditions also cause stress to your dog. Rule out health problems first, then try to reduce your dog's stress as much as possible.

Any parent knows that this is a fundamental truth: little kids get excited. It's why young children are so challenging for parents. They can be having fun and doing great, and then suddenly they are melting down or hitting their friend.
Your cat may be peeing on the dog bed because they don't like their litter box. Maybe the litter box has a cover that traps odors or restricts their movement so they can't get in a comfortable position to do their business. Take a good look at the litter box to see if something looks “off”.
Dogs may pee on your bed for many reasons including a medical condition, excitement, leaving their scent, or because they are anxious. While it's frustrating, it's important not to yell at or punish your dog, as that isn't likely to stop the behavior.
