Dog Peeing Inside at Night

I have 3 male dogs, 2 of them are 2 year old Havanese, and the other is a 1 year old Pomeranian. All 3 of them are house trained and go outside. My oldest first dog has just started this new thing where he pees everywhere and anywhere inside the house, but only at night time while I'm sleeping. If I'm awake there are no accidents, but when I wake up in the AM I will find spots on the corner of the couch, near refrigerator, and even by his food & water bowl. I don't know what to do. Should I get dog diapers? Or remove their food/water? Any advice?

This sometimes happens when the youngest dog gets old enough to present a challenge to the perceived authority of an older dog. An older dog used to being the boss doesn't like it when a young one with a strong personality gets older. The peeing is a form of territory marking.

Walking all dogs every day as a pack is a must. Not just to go to the bathroom. Also, discipline in the form of training. If the dogs are trying to sort out who's in charge, the answer needs to be you.
Make sure they have some commands they must obey, such as sitting before they eat or before they go out the door. Don't allow them to bark at doors and windows, and so forth. More discipline, more training.
It is a must that all dogs be neutered if one is marking. These lowers their feeling of competition with each other.

Hi, has there been a resent change in the home?, has ur dogs been neutered?, my feeling is that your dog is saying to other dogs leave my water, he's laying his mark. Also he could be nervous as he's doing it when ur in bed.

Do not ever remove a dogs water bowl. Don't shout or disaplin ur dog as he won't understand. There are a lot of factors to consider so its difficult to suggest something. Why is ur dogs not going to bed for the nite when u r?

No, no change in home. All 3 dogs were neutered as puppies. He's almost 3 now. I do not ever remove there food or water bowls. I leave it out all day. All 3 of them have been sharing since I've had them as puppies. He does go to sleep when I do actually earlier but he wakes up in middle of night and that's when his accidents happen.

I sometimes get up with him to avoid the accidents but other times I stay in bed. The other two never have accidents. He's been doing this for awhile it just started to become a problem for my husband more than myself.

Dogs should only have food at meal time. I would take the water away at night. I would also visit the vet to make sure there are no physical issues causing the incontinence.

Most likely he is marking her territory. I would first take him to the vet though, to rule out any other problems.

I have a dog who hates the rain and so goes on the carpet during the night I think she also is afraid of going outside at night because we get an occasional skunk or Raccoon. I've started taking her to a dog park where she pees like a banshee but that's not always possible. Help!!!!
