8 months and still crate peeing
We adopted a boxer/pitt this past July at 3 months, and housebreaking took about 2 weeks. She no longer goes to the bathroom in the house. Now, she's about 8 months old, and crate peeing is still a problem. We wake up with her between 6am and 7.30am, take her out for a walk where she goes to the bathroom and then give her breakfast. She gets a final walk before we head to work (8.30am) and is crated until 12.30 or so. No accidents this first part of the day. She gets a walk and a snack (recently integrated, since she's going through a growth spurt), then she's crated again and left until 5.30pm. Then there's all of the pee. All of the time. We've tried music, giving her lunch and not giving her lunch, taking her out multiple times at noon, trying a smaller crate or a bigger crate, towel on the ground vs. no towel on the ground... nothing is helping. There's no consistency or discernible pattern. Help is defintiely welcomed! And so much thanks.
