Not sure to post this here or in the potty area. Ok here it goes. Bella is almost 15 weeks old and has been doing great on potty training but since we got her at 8 weeks I noticed that she has been trying to turn around and drink her pee right after she goes the only way I try to stop that is to stand right next to her when she goes and if she tries to lick it tell her no and pick her up then bring her back in the house. That was working or at least so I thought. Now recently I have noticed that she is wetting her bed at night, she is crated at night and was doing good at first. As soon as I hear her, I jump up and take her out but sometimes before I get to her I notice that she had already peed and is not fresh its like maybe it leaked and she licked it up. So I thought ok maybe, just maybe I didn't hear her whine to go out so I have been picking up her water bowl at about 8pm she goes for her last potty around 10 to 1030pm then usually wakes at 7am I purposely got up at 5 to wake her up to go and low and behold she peed in her kennel on her blanket and didn't even care she is not waking up to go. I didn't think dogs liked to sleep where they pee, do you think she is purposely peeing to lick it up or do some dogs just sometimes wet the bed. I heard large breeds can do that in their deep sleep after they are fixed can this be possible for her to. Its only at night not during naps. I have never scolded her when she had an accident in the house cause if she did it was not her fault but mine for not paying attention to her so I don't think she is trying to hide it, should I not crate her at night I do not think she is 100% potty trained yet, she does love her crate she knows that is where she sleeps at night, during the day I leave it open so she can go in there if she wants to without closing the door and she will nap in there as well. Im afraid to put her in there without the blanket cause at least that is soaking up the urine and she can't lick it all up, either way its gross, any suggestions would help. Thank you. She sees her vet in a few weeks and I will talk to him again but in the meantime im hoping to get some advise. Thank you,
