When working at the shelter Cockers were my worst nightmare!
Most dogs wont pee on themselves and their, food, crate, bedding etc. But it seemed cockers had no problems with doing so, lol. As lovey and cuddley as they were, they were extreemly gross and messy in their kennel. I wonder if its a breed trait?
I would limit the space available in her crate. Just enought for her to stand and turn around, with no bedding. Leaving a corner for her to pee in and enough space for her to get away from it, is usually the problem.
CONSISTENCY is another huge problem, I know its heart breaking and reeeaalllly annoying to listen to her in the crate, but in the end its a better reward. Stick her in the crate every night and at scheduled times throughout the day. Set a schedule for yourself and her, and stick to it. I found taking up the water 3 hours before bed time really helps as well. Also make a huge deal of her pottying outside, even if shes just crate peeing Ive noticed this helps some dogs want to hold it.
My dog was crated the first year and a half, it was alot of work and hard planning. Some dogs adjust quick and have no problems, but your little girl (like my dobe) needs a lot of work. Now my Dobe is crate free, doesnt mark, and never barks when he is rarely put behind the child gate.
