There's really no way of knowing if your puppy's urinary frequency is from a physical problem such as a UTI or is normal behavior for an 11 week old puppy unless you bring her to your veterinarian for a urinalysis and possibly other tests. Pups don't usually go in their crates so either she's crated for too long a period of time or else something physical is going on.

If she does have a UTI you'll never get anywhere with housetraining until that's cleared up. So I suggest to see your vet ASAP.

At 11 weeks you've got a long way to go until she's housetrained so I found that using the philosophy "if my puppy has an accident, it's my fault" prevented me from getting frustrated at the puppy as I could always think of something I didn't do right.

Good luck and keep us posted on what you find out at the vets.
