How old is your dog?  I think you might have to go back to basics and take him out every hour or two like you did when he was a puppy (if you had him as a puppy) to re-train him not to go potty indoors.

@Tswife4ever: Sounds like there is a bigger medical issue here. Did the vet check his kidney function?

If that is fine, then maybe cut off water 2 hrs before bedtime so he can make it through the night?

How old is he?

Well, I was always told that it’s good to give your dog as much water as they want during the day, but you can take the water away at a specific time in the evening so they won’t pee during the night. If I go to bed at 11, then I take the water away at 9. The same goes for food too.

I know the vet said to give him more water, but it doesn’t have to mean give it to him in his crate. I couldn’t imagine drinking a big bowl of water and not having to go to the bathroom, so your poor dog. Try getting him to drink more water when you are home. Does he like ice cubes? My dogs love them and it’s a different way to get more water into his system.

Is he on any medication like a steriod that would make him so thirsty/urinate so much?

Maybe since he only gets the water bowl 3 times a day he feels the need to hoard the water and drink it all every time, which would cause excessive urination. When we got our dog a new “fancy” water bowl he became obsessed with drinking water since it was new and exciting to him. He peed a lot, but since the bowl is always there after 2 days he got over it and went back to his normal schedule.

Did the vet check him for kidney issues or diabetes? Definitely sounds like there is something more…

It defintely sounds like some sort of additional medical issue to me.  I’ve never owned a dog that didn’t have full-time access to as much water as they wanted and have never had issues with them peeing.  We use something like this:

ERGO Auto Pet Water Bowl - Large

Hope you can figure out what’s up with your sweetie though.

@Tessemasgirl- Sorry I read it wrong. How old is the dog? Is he still a puppy?

Our dog used to pee her crate all the time, hers was seperation anxiety.  As long as she sleeps in the room with us she has wonder bladder and will hold it until we get up, even if we sleep in.  When we leave the house, we put her in the bathroom and she does great in there.  Maybe give it a shot and see if that works.
