Default Peeing machine!

My 5 month old Maggie will pee in her crate with no regard. She has been this way since day one. Even with the space restricted as much as humanely possible she's still laying in pee every morning. No whining when she needs to go out. Ever.

If she's out and on the couch or her bed she'll stand up and look at you. That's my cue. If she's roaming around which I don't trust her to do she'll go in the floor if you're not around.

She'll go in the crate without fussing. It is in a separate room because it's so large. I'd love to make it through the night with no accidents. What should I do?

Do you restrict water in the evening??? At 7pm, I take the water away from Murphy. If I see Pheona wanting water, I will pour some water for her & watch while she drinks. Make sure you take her out right before bedtime as well. We are finally at the occasional accident with Murphy. Good luck!!!

Take her water bowl away about 2 hours before you go to bed, and take her out at least twice after the water is removed - last time right before you go to bed.
If she continues to pee in her crate - take out the bedding for a week or so.

How long is she crated at night?
At her age she can only be expected to "hold it" for about 6 hours.

Yeah she'll drink the bathtub dry given the opportunity. She's an addict. She gets a soup bowl full with her meals. Or if she just keeps going hunting for it in the kitchen. I don't give her any after 6 or 7 either.

If she's drinking that much all the time you might want to consider a check-up at the vet.

Sometimes she's got bedding. Sometimes not. Depends on laundry day! I can cut her off at 7. Take her out three times before I go to sleep at 12, and she'll have peed by 6 am. I really hate to have to get up at 3 or 4.

She had worms that are being treated. They tell me that is the cause for some of the water drinking.

Ahh, the joys of puppyhood
Try getting up at 5 and see if that helps, or just deal with the mess until she's older.

I can deal with the mess if there is light at the end of the tunnel! Should I move her crate into the room with us. I didn't Think much about it since she's in the room with us if we're home. Crate is only for bed time and if we're gone. I can't imagine giving her run of the house. Because she's had surgery she's on restriction so we've got a gate around her bed that she lays on when she's out of the crate. Should that bed be in the crate? If she really needs to go she'll pee on that bed too. I'm lost.

You could let her sleep in bed with you.
