Hmmm... I've been using aluminum foil to cover the back of our couch to keep the hounds from napping on my new cushions... my dogs glower at it but stay off the backs of my couch now! I wonder if you put foil either by the bed or where the incidents are happening? It makes a lovely crinkly sound so might even wake you up! I've also put a gate as a barricade over a corner of the wall where our pound puppy is apt to pee- not gated... just propped so if he goes to pee it topples over and scares him. Just some thoughts!

We removed all little carpets, they seemed to be a magnet for little nighttime pee's. That definitely helped.

Exactly! We say she is a witch with a capital B.

Tacks; that aught to not only wake up the neighborhood but will certainly teach the two to not leave the bedroom at night! It at least worked in a Laurel and Hardy movie I once saw. Of course I'm joking here.

If you are concerned about crating them because of long crate periods during the day, what about fencing them off during the night? I know some people cannot close the bedroom door at night because the bedroom will get too cold or too hot or too stuffy, so if you cannot close the door I would try fencing them off with a baby gate or something.

Here is a silly idea that works like the awesome bell or leash suggestion but that doesn't wake you or pull you apart with every move of the dog: What about getting some sort of motion-activated audio device, like one of those fish on the wall things--Billy Bass I think he's called--or a Halloween prop? Put that baby outside of your door to where the sensor field crosses the threshold, and you are bound to wake up to "Don't Worry, be Happy!" or Dracula talking about the benefits of bloodletting. Probably scare the bejeebers out of the dogs the first time, but you could introduce them to the device during the day and give them treats to get them used to it first? Just a thought.

Well, my person put a "sleeping harness" on (a comfy mesh harness) attached to a leash that she put around her arm when me first got to sleep on her bed.
great mind thing alike that is how I deal with puppies that i let sleep on the the bed, I sleep to soundly to have a bell wake me up.

the other is to treat them as puppies st an alarm for the middle of the night and take them out.

limit access to water at night

If Maddie did this, I would be setting an alarm to wake me so I could take her out to pee at night. It sounds like your dog can't wait all night.
So, is it voice? Or just the face
that captures me, and haunts me so.
Or, am I meant to never know?

I like the Billy Bass idea!

But I think Mikey's right- maybe limiting water in the evening will help.

Our little Lyla (10 weeks) has been great at night in her crate. I'm a light sleeper and usually wake up around 4am on my own. I wake her up, take her out, and put her right back into the crate. She goes back to sleep without crying. If only she could go 4-5 hours during the DAY without peeing! She's making progress, but I wish I could fast forward a couple months...

I have the same issue with Fred not being able to hold it. I paper trained him when I first adopted him, so now if I leave a towel down he goes pee on that. I put a big white towel (so I can bleach it and so I can see it) down by the back door and it works great. He does like to pee on rugs though, so I have to flip them up exposing the rubber when we're not home. He won't pee on them when they're like that.
Our babies:
Fred- Basset Hound, rescue (approx 3)
Trixie- French Bulldog, adopted/re-homed (5)
Brewtus- Boston Terrier, born spoiled (13)
