Puppy Crate Training Having Some Trouble
Is your brand new puppy, little Britney having accidents in her crate over night ?
Or is she going to the bathroom in her crate while your at work or school all day ?
Then do not despair, this is normal. The denning instinct of your young puppy, is not going to prevent her from going to the bathroom in her crate. So do not be surprised or angry when you wake up too, or come home too, a filthy puppy that quite frankly is not all that happy herself that you put her in that situation.
This is a baby, every puppy will go to the bathroom in their crate if they are left in it for any extended period of time, that exceeds their ability to hold it. For some puppies that extended period of time can be two or three hours, and for others it may be a little longer or a little shorter.
Contrary to the currently accepted wisdom on puppy housebreaking, for many homes these days crate training is probably not your best option.
If you would like to help yourself out with puppy housebreaking and on the way keep Britney a little more cleaner and happier, read the following Spirit Dog articles.
