My dog has been acting up recently. Shes been peeing in the house overnight and chewing up things, which she never used to do. She is almost a year old and she's always been a wonderful dog. I don't want her doing this anymore for fear that she will get hold of my computer cords or furniture one night or the pee smell. I was thinking about crating her at night when I go to bed. Hubby lets her out very early when he gets up for work and I go to bed very late, so she wouldnt be in there long. What do you think and do you have any other suggestions?Answer Question

She may be acting out as a way to get your attention. Like "hey mom!! Something isn't right and I can;t talk so I'll pee on something nice to let you know!" Did you guys just have a baby? You or your DH change your schedules? Anything that will throw off the schedule she was used to? Also, I would definitely go with the crate thing. A crate gives a dog a warm, safe place. With out dog, we used to say "crate", give him a treat, and put him in there at night right before bed. It wasn't a week before he knew what the crate was for. If he ever got scared, that's where he went. And bc their crate is like their "den", they wont mess in there. They will hold it as long as they can to keep from peeing in their bed. And who would blame them? Don't we wake up in the middle of the night to pee? lol.
