Default peeing in crate

How can i get my puppy to stop peeing in her crate. She goes out to pee and is fine but at night we wake up and she has already peed without her making noise that she had to go. Any ideas

My suggestion would be to set an alarm to wake yourself up several times a night, and take her out even if she's sleeping. It sucks, but it's only for a short while, and it will save you from cleaning up a mess. Mine peed in his bed in our livingroom the other day. He was just sleeping so deeply he wet the bed. She probably doesn't have the bladder control yet to hold it. Also, you can remove her water a few hours before bed.

You'd have to take her out more often. When Leila was a pup, we took her out every two hours. We set our alarms so that the kids and I alternated taking her out.

Crate must be small enough for her to be able to turn around and stand up only. Any more room than that and she can pee in a corner and not have to lie in it

How old is your puppy and how long is she in the crate at night?
A 3 month old puppy can only hold it for 4 hours, a four month old puppy can hold it for 5 hours. They can hold it an hour longer than how many months they are.
If she is young, set your alarm and get up and take her out in the midlle of the night, or don't get mad if you have to clean up a mess.
