Have you taken her to the vet? She may have a urinary tract infection. Also, something may be stressing her out. I suggest that if you can, one of you go home mid-day to take her out. Maybe you can both take turns. She may just not be able to hold it that long.

Also.. do you have anything soft in the crate?  Like a blanket or a towel?  If so, you need to remove it until she learned to hold it.  Anything soft will absorb the pee, which means that she’s not forced to sit in it.

But I second the opinion to get her checked for a UTI.  At a year old she should have no problem holding it for the duration of a normal work day.

@Miss Chapstick: You might check around your neighborhood for someone to come in to let her out during the day. There are professional dog walkers. It shouldn’t cost very much, if all they are doing is taking her out to potty once a day. Another thought, maybe she would enjoy a kong with some peanut butter in it. It would keep her busy and give her something else to do during the day when you are gone.
