Please help me, my puppy keeps peeing in her crate =[
I bought my yorkie pup a crate (one meant for an adult labrador). She is 3 lbs and I wanted her to have a larger crate to stretch out and also to play in. She loves her crate, but she keeps going potty inside it!
- I only put her in the crate for maximum 2 hours in small intervals throughout the day (30 minutes here and there), she is with me 22 hours of the day.
- She doesn't potty on my lap or in my bed, she sleeps with me every night with no accidents.
- I have her potty schedule down pat, and always take her outside, accidents in the house are maybe 2% and my fault.
I read that I should put large boxes in the crate to make an artificial wall that would make the crate smaller...and it would make it so she cant potty in such a tiny area. Is there any truth in this? Any thoughts are appreciated, thank you!
