My healthy, 3 year old rescue (Doberman Pinscher) has always had issues holding her pee. We’ve had her for 8 months and sometimes even if we take her out to pee right before bed, she’ll pee her bed just a couple hours into the night. In this case and in any other case where she pees in the house, she will drink the urine. We think she may have been from a puppy mill because she also has had issues eating her poop and has always had issues peeing in her bed/crate while I’ve heard that’s very abnormal for most dogs. We’ve had her tested for uti/bladder issues and nothing.
We try to limit her water intake before bed, but don’t know what else we can do to prevent it. Happens maybe 1-2 times a month. Every time we catch her we stop her and take her outside to finish (she always pees a bunch more once taken out) but would like to implement something to stop her before her bed gets soiled. Or any tips to help her learn to hold it? The 2 AM laundry is getting a little old.
