Having Problems.

I have a 16 month old Maltese. He has recently started peeing in his crate. He has never had this problem before and has been crate trained for a while now. There are no sings of a UTI and I've tried many things to stop it and nothing is working! Any ideas?

Are you leaving the pup in the crate to many hours? Are you giving plenty of exercise when out of the crate?

Have you by any chance been cleaning it with an enzymatic cleaner? If the plastic or his bedding still has lingering crystals of urine (really only an enzymatic cleaner can destroy them), it could be smelling like 'go ahead and pee right here again'.

I would do these things, in this order:

Vet check, for UTI (just in case) and for a full check up . It could be something else making him sick.

Clean the crate with enzymatic cleaner, and other problem areas.

Go back to puppy housebreaking, bringing the dog out every hour for 5-15 minutes to give them a chance to relieve themselves. Reward heavily for going outside.

Take a look at your schedule. Is he peeing while you're away? At night? While he's unsupervised? Tackle those problems, and take preventative measures-ie if it only happens while you're away, start doing some separation anxiety prevention as well as above. You might find there's other issues.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

UTIs are not the only medical cause of inappropriate urination. Diabetes mellitis (sugar diabetes), diabetes insipidus (water diabetes), kidney stones and a host of other diseases/conditions can cause inappropriate urination. He really needs to see a vet.
