Hi ladies, I apologize if this has been asked before. We have a 13 year old German Shepard mix and she's in mostly good health. She is arthritic and doesn't want to walk more than a mile most days--but she eats well and seems happy. But starting a few months ago, she has been having small pee accidents at night. They aren't big, it's like she can't control her bladder well enough and needs to go out more. We let her out about 10 and again at 5 since DH gets up early for work. I would say about 1-2 a week that's not enough. We have just been steam cleaning and I'll ask the vet at her yearly. Any other tips?

My friend set an alarm for midnight pees. Then she couldn't take it anymore so she potty pad trained her GSD so she didn't have to wake. My only other question would be if she had a bladder infection.
BTW, my dog is an asshole. He revenge pees which is running around the house drizzling piss everywhere (he's peed my boyfriend in bed and me in bed on seperate occasions). So I thought he had a bladder infection because WHO DOES THAT? My dog. My dog does that because he's an asshole.

We had this issue with my dog about a year before we lost her. We just put pee pads down near her bed and changed them every morning if she had used them (had to cover the floor of the area where she slept).
