Hi! I'm new to this forum and have found a lot of good info. However, I have not seen an answer to my issue.

We put our 4 month old puppy in her crate while we are home for an hour and she does great! She usually naps. When we put her in the crate and leave the house for an hour, she pees in the crate. We take her outside for potty before putting her in the crate. Every time she pees in the crate, I clean it with an enzyme cleaner. She has been doing this since we had her. Initially, I thought it was because of her age, but now I'm not so sure because she only does it when we are not home. Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!!

Did you crate train her before you started to use the crate as a safe confinement?
I'm not sure if she sees the crate as a safe place or is scared to be in there. When you go out for an hour do you give her a food filled Kong to keep her entertained? (Though not every dog likes to eat while crated or if they have separation anxiety)
