I have an Italian Greyhound with a bladder the size of a pea! she is 4-5 yrs old so she isn't going to grow out of it, and here is how I handle it. first of all most dogs do not poo and pee where they sleep that is true but if the crate is to big they will "go" in the crate next to where they sleep. or if their tiny bladders are too small or untrained they will "go" in the crate because they have not other choice. for my little Lucy, I have a bigger crate and inside I have her Doggie Bed, and every time she had an accident I had to wash all the doggie bedding because it would get wet or dirty, so now I have her Doggie Bed set inside a low sided cat box to keep it from getting wet and I don't have to wash it after each accident (and she can easily get in and outof it). next I put a pee-pee pad down so clean up is easier. it has made my life so much easier. Instead of fighting her tiny bladder I have accepted it and make it easier for both of us, now she doesn't have to sleep in her pee and I have an easy clean up. I also have her crate slightly elevated on one side (about a 1/4 of an inch) so that pee never flows toward her bedding, which is helpful too. hope that is helpful! if you have any questions feel free to PM me.
