    Take the towel out. Many will pee on bedding or towels in their crate. I know it seems mean..but it's the key!

    Hello! My Maude is now 10 months old. When she was a little pup, she would whine during the night when she had to pee.(she sleeps in her crate).When she got older-she didn't wake up and whine-she would pee in her crate. I had to change/wash her bed once or twice a night. They go to bed between 8 and 9 p.m.-me,too. I started getting her up at about 11:30 p.m.(had to drag her out of crate-she didn't want to wake up) to go out. I realized that she is such a heavy sleeper that she just wet in her sleep. Now the last month, she has been sleeping until about 4:30 a.m. without peeing(I stopped the 11:30 run) and then she lets me know that she has to go! Maybe your pup is a heavy sleeper too, and you need to take her out a little later. Hope this may help. She was the first dog I had that didn't pee in her crate when little-and started it as she got a little older. Couldn't figure it out at first. I did limit the water, but that didn't seem to help.

    The other thing you are going to want to do is limit the amount of space she has in her crate. I know again it's hard because you feel like you are being mean. She should only have enough space in her crate at night to turn around, nothing more. Most of the time they won't go if they know they are going to have to lay in it.

    Definitely make the crate smaller with a divider so she only has room to stand up and turn around. Also take the towel out - without a towel she will be forced to sit in her pee, which she won't like at all. We never gave Bosco any bedding in his crate until we were certain he understood that was his den and he wouldn't pee in it.

    Every puppies bladder control develops differently hers might still need some time. 9 to 9 1/2 hours may still be to long for her to hold her urine at night.

    Once a pup has peed in a crate you also need to clean it extremely well with something like nature's miracle to cover the urine smell or she will think it is an okay place to pee. Bleach doesn't work.

    We took Loki's out too when he was restricted only to his house instead of being able to roam the home. I think he almost likes it better when it is not in there

    I wish I could give you a magic answer to this. Daddy was and is the same. He did get a lot better as he got older but he's almost 3 years old and still pees his bedding!!!
