Hi. I have a miniature pinscher. She's been with me for 3 years. Sadly I have not done much to properly housebreak her. Her and I have only recently begun to do so. Overall I feel that it's going well. I am taking her out first thing in the morning and immediately when I get home from work. I am watching her closely and keeping her close by to avoid any unwanted eliminating in the apartment. When she does have an accident I am stopping it as it happens and quickly taking her outside and cleaning the area. Overall there have been minimal accidents throughout the day. It is at night and overnight that we're struggling. She won't pee in the afternoons and evenings when I take her out. She's not peeing in the house during the evenings so there are no accidents there, but she is peeing overnight. She sleeps in her crate with a dog blanket and in the mornings I find that she'd peed on her blanket. I am immediately cleaning up in hopes that she'll learn that she shouldn't pee there, yet each night it's happening. What else should I be doing? Can anyone help us out a bit?
