Angry Shih tzu peeing in house

Yes, my Shiz Tzu is 8 years old and pees in the house, only at night when I'm sleeping. I can't catch him in the act, so what am I to do, Stay up all night and take him to the bathroom? Also when I'm with him all day he goes to the door, it's only when I'm in bed he gets out of the bedroom and then he lifts his leg and pees on anything he can. So does anyone have ideas? I'm not gonna tie him up at night but I can leave him in the garage, but, he has to stay in the garage all day while I'm at work, I hate to leave him in the there at night too! Any ideas. He is so cute, but he has control over me, not me "over" him.

Can you barricade him in an area or crate him at night? My friend who
does Pomeranian rescue has a big barricade in her kitchen that she
covers with papers where her rescue dogs spend the night and crates for
all of her own dogs to sleep in at night. Friends of ours with a larger
dog leave their dog in the (papered) laundry room at night, too.

First things first - a vet check to rule out infections which
may make the dog thinks that he needs to pee.

Other than that, any major changes in your household or has he
always had this behaviour? Is he neutered? Does he have a
name?

I'm not gonna tie him up at night but I can leave him in
the garage, but, he has to stay in the garage all day while
I'm at work, I hate to leave him in the there at night
too!


Why does he have to stay in the garage all day?

First, a vet visit. Is he peeing in the garage during the day? Sounds
like he's not actually housebroken. Don't allow him to get out of the
bedroom. I'm assuming he's not neutered? Never too late, although it
may only help marking behavior a little bit. Crate confinement in the
bedroom would be an excellent way to condition him to sleep at night,
instead of wander and urinate. once he's cleared of any medical problems.

===========
If the vet finds that he is in good health, then why don't you try putting
him in a crate in your room at night. Then putting him outside immediately
in the morning when you remove him from the crate.
