Our three year old dog uses doggy door perfectly during the day even when home alone but at night just wees and sometimes poos inside. Doesn’t matter if we take away water early and take long walk and she uses toilet on the walk she will still go in house during night. Now our other dog has started copying her. Have tried everything that has been recommended to us and paid so much money on what’s been recommended anti anxiety sprays etc and just at a loss! Any one had same experience? Help please!

It sounds like she's scared to go out alone at night. I know I've had pets that won't go out at night unless I go with them. Turn on the lights outside when she goes out and/or install motion-activated lights so she can see and isn't as scared.

Another option is to build positive association with the outside during night by playing with her out there, feeding her out there, etc.
