We have an 8 week old puppy. For the first week we had her, she would whine and we would get up 4 times a night to let her out to pee. The last 2 nights we haven't heard her make a sound but when we woke up we realized that she's now peeing in her crate! Now that she thinks its ok to pee in her crate how can we get her to stop?

What kind of puppy is it? Where did you get her/him from?

I have an 11 week old lab, who makes it all night, but sometimes has accidents in his crate during the day (2-4 hours in the crate). I'm thinking his lack of exercise might be the issue, since he is three weeks out from his last set of shots, so still can't go walking! He gets lots of exercise right before bed, but not so much in the morning.

3-4 hours before bed time make sure she doesn't drink. Take her out to pee before bed time, maybe she won't need to pee in the middle of the night.
Also, it might be that the crate is too big and she feels okay to pee in it.
