speration issues

I have a puppy that is about 6 months old and I just recently went back to work. But before that when me and my husband would leave the house just for 15 minute he would pee his cage even though he went out just before we leave and he goes every time that he goes out. Now that I have gone back to work he has managed to destroy one cage and pee all though it. No matter how much room we gave him we are now working on trying to keep his second cage together but he manages to brake that one every day. I'm at a lost with this puppy and I would like some ideas on what to do

how much exercise and stimulation does he get before you leave?

have you/can you feed him in his crate?

breed, where you got him, how long you've had him etc etc.

what did you do you acclimate him to the crate and does he have anything to keep him engaged when hes in it?

Like the first post started to say, the single best thing you can do is to give the dog plenty of exercise before putting them in their crate. I have cavalier king charles spaniels, by no means a high energy dog, yet we still make it a point to walk them a mile in the morning before we leave the young one in her crate. Trust me, living in Michigan, the last thing you want to do is get out of your nice warm bed on a chilly 10 degree morning to walk for 15 minutes but you realize you're doing it for the dog, not for you.

If this is a working breed, I'd suggest investing in a backpack for the dog that adds a bit of weight while they walk. This could help save you time as they will expend more energy over a shorter distance. Make sure to do your research regarding the appropriate amount of weight to add.

Lastly, remember that these are the habits that will develop with the dog. If you do not correct it now, they will not simply grow out of it. The worst thing to do would be to ignore it and hope it goes away. Start a routine and stick with it. It's not easy but it will get easier.

Best of luck!

After a proper amount of exercise, I found that treat toys help a lot. I give my dogs these toys right before I leave for work. It helps distracting my dogs attention.
Another trick is to pretend that I was about to leave the house like grabbing the car key, putting on shoes and so on but I ended up doing something else in the house. So the dogs won't associate the pattern with leaving the house.
