It sounds to me as if she is in the crate a bit too often. When you are out I can understand it but at night she should be able to settle in a dog-bed. Our two get up several times a night, for a stretch and a scratch and then go back to their baskets, which are in our room.We keep the bedroom door shut so they cant leave the room. Sometimes I am aware that they are standing watching us, but if we pretend to be asleep they eventually go back to bed. What time do you go to bed? i.e. how late is she let out? Our usually go out about midnight for their last pee.
