As female dogs age, especially ones that have been spayed, they start to lose control over the bladder muscles. This is called urinary incontinence. Generally, the first sign that a dog is becoming incontinent is urinating or "dribbling" in her sleep. Your vet should be able to prescribe a supplement that can help with bladder strength. If your dog is still young, there could be an anatomical issue that may need to be addressed. In either case, a visit to the vet is going to be the best route to go.
