Several possibilities. She could have a urinary tract infection or she could possibly have a weak bladder. Some female dogs experience this are a result of their spay and it may not show up until the pup is older.
Either case, you should have her checked out by the vet to rule out any medical problem.

I ahd the same problem with my GSD, Cookie. We took her to the vet. Turns out she had urninary incontinence, which is common in older dogs. It could also be a urinary tract infection with your dog.

she might have something going on and there is a medication for Bladder control and belive me it will work.
Please get her to the vet and have her check out.

A similar situation happened with Maggie when she was around 3 or 4. She would have accidents while sleeping and never realized it. After several trips to the vet we decided to eliminate the grass saver pills I had been giving her. In addition to that she was given some type of pill that was supposed to strengthen her bladder. I'm not sure which did the trick or if it was a combination, but it seemed to work.
I also used to let her eat a lot of celery and I noticed that if I fed it to her later in the evening she seemed to have accidents while sleeping too.
