Default My 2 1/2 year old stop peeing

I am currently having a major issue with Kona and continuos peeing in the house, kennel, where ever she is and not sure how to fix it. We kennel trained her from the beginning, leaving her in the kennel for a few hours at a time and would let her out only to find that she has peed in her kennel. Now 2.5 years later she still cant even hold it 5 hours with out going all over her kennel. I take her for a walk right before bed, we take all water from her 2 hours prior to going to bed and then when I hear her at 0200hrs I get up to a nice surprise of a kennel full. Its very frustrating to know that I cant even go to bed get a full nights rest]. When we are home we allow her to roam the house but we are constantly finding pee spots around. I have taking her in to the vet to check to see if she has a UTI and that is not the case.
I walk her 3 - 4 times a day, we also have a yard and another dog who go out and play in the yard very frequently. We praise and treat when she does go to the bathroom but it seems like it does not work.
We are so frustrated because it seems like everything we have is being ruined by her.
What do i do?

I'd get sine blood work done if they have already checked for a UTI. Diabetes?

The vet actually took a urine sample to test for UTI? What about specific gravity?
Has the vet taken any blood to check kidney function values?

There is a chance this might be behavioural or she could have some incontinence issues going on. I would definately have another urinalysis done and a full CBC (blood work). Rule out diabetes, check kidney function etc.

In the mean time, I would look into purchasing some diapers for her. If its behavioural it might help teach her to hold it until she is outside and they are off. If its medical then they will save your home.

Thanks for the great responses. We are in the process of moving right now and have went to using the diapers to get us through the move. She still is urinating in the diaper. I took her out today for a good run in the park and she peed for about 1 minute to start and then about every 10 minutes she will squat to pee again and that is without any water. So not sure why she would have to urinate so much when she has not even replenished her water yet. At night she is still making it about 5 hours before waking us up to go out again. HOw much do most of these extra tests cost?

Not sure about pricing where you are. Blood work is usually about $100 and a urine test is about $30-40. The fact that she keeps squating multiple times is making me thing UTI and or kidney stones. What ever you do, do not restrict her water, she needs to keep flushing her bladder. If she doesnt drink enough water the urine will become concentrated and it will be much harder on her kidneys.

Most vets that use antech do a combo deal. Full CBC (blood test) with free UA (urine test). Some don't. Just depends on lab they use and of course vet. Full CBC in my area is around $170
