Default House Training

We have a 8 Month old German Shepard female. She is housebroken except at night. She will pee and poop in her kennel at night. We are not sure what can be causing this.

I would appreciate all the help we can get.

How big is her kennel? Sometimes if they have too much room they'll do this.

When do you take her food and water away? Do you let her out before bed and what time?

Can it be from stress? Is she separated from you at night? If so, try to keep her in your bedroom (crated) and see if that helps along with the other tips you got already (no food after 5.00PM and no water after 8.00 PM, being let out right before your bedtime, no longer crated than 8 hours during the night).
