Tammy, is the door to her crate closed at night? Augie is being treated for a UTI right now as well. Not being able to hold it all night was my first indication that there was a problem. This is his second UTI, and finding wet spots on the throw rug in front of the front door, I knew something was wrong as he has always been so reliable after about a year or so of age. But with the UTI, he just can't hold it all night. I have been sleeping on the couch - I am a light sleeper - and he will come to me and paw at me when he has to go out. It has been about 3 a.m. This morning it was 4:30, so I am hoping he will slowly recover here and can last all night again. My guys don't have access to bedrooms. Finn is still a work in progress; I had to start taking him out frequently a couple months back, and treat and praise him, and (knock on wood) he is doing pretty well again. Augie is not locked in his crate at night. His crate is located in the living room, and there is also another little bed in the living room, or he sleep for awhile in a chair. Seldom does he sleep in the same spot all night. Thank goodness he didn't choose a corner on carpeting for his accidents. For whatever reason, he chose the throw rug, on tile, in front of the front door. Maybe because it is similar in shape and color to the UgoDog that he was trained on.
