Peeing in Crate Overnight
I'm new to this forum and welcome some help! We have a 5 month old German Shepherd puppy. He is doing pretty well with house training - his accidents in the house are few and far between. But, for some reason, he pees in the crate every night. I've tried making the crate smaller, so he doesn't have as much room to get away from his pee, and he didn't seem to care or mind sitting in it. I take up the water every night around 7:30 or 8:00 pm and he goes on his last trip outside around 10:00 pm and I get him up around 7:00 am. And, there have been nights where the time is much shorter, but he still pees every time and sometimes still poops. But, during the day, sometimes we won't get to go home at lunch to let him out and he can go 9 hours without using the bathroom. I'm just wondering if there's something I'm doing wrong or a better method - anyone have any advice?
Thanks so much!!
