I take her food and water away at 9:30 pm and take her out 2 or 3 times after that til around 11 when i go to bed. if she sleeps though the night she is fine, but if something wakes her she runs down to the bathroom. how can i train her to not need to go to the bathroom during the night? or if she wakes up...to be able to hold it til around 7:00 am when i am up.
