Hi blg,


You may have to crate her at night, however you want to make sure that there is not issues with bladder infection or bladder stones. If this has recently started I would suspect a health issue first then behavior. Gather up a sample of her urine and bring it in for testing.

another thing that can be an issue for an older dog is incontinence.
