Dog Pooping and Peeing Inside at Night

I have an American Akita who is about 18 months old. He can't seem to go through the night without peeing or pooping in my kitchen. We have an enclosed outside area for him which he can get to in the night, but doesn't. We have tried all sorts of cleaning products to get rid of the scent, but he still does it in the exact same place. We don't know what to do. We give him a bowl full of water in the morning and then with his dinner, but take it away at night. During the day he goes outside to do his business. Does anyone have any advise? I'm open to all suggestions.

it sounds like you have to keep him crated at night. He will avoid voiding on his sleeping den, and then he will learn to hold it in.

In general, you have to catch him in the act to correct the behaviour. Barring that, crating him and thus teaching him when and where it's appropriate to defecate and urinate is the way to go

You may be feeding him too close to his last nightly walk. Try walking him later, or feeding him earlier.
