Cats and dogs often pee on plastic bags or white fabric as a way of marking on a substance that is otherwise odorless. This can be for many reasons either to explore their own scent or promote someone/something else to pick up the odor. Should this be a routine seek your local vet and ask about UTIs

Is your dog male? Even neutered, they will try and mark their territory- especially if it has no scent and is new in your home! I find the spray made by natures miracle works well. Just spray anything “within reach” and it should stay safe!

The only material I have seen on this topic is that the plastic could carry more scents on it and so they like to pee on it to mark it to put their scent on it (like the comment above said).
