We have a new addition to our home, he is a 12 week old pekepoo puppy. He's a pet store puppy that was bought on impulse by a co-worker (why I'll never know after all the preaching I've done) and then decided it was too much work. Anyway, we are crate training like we did Cocoa and this little s*** just is not getting it. This little guy will go potty (both poop and pee) and then we put him in the crate before we leave for work or anywhere, we come home 3 to 4 hours later (sometimes even 2 hours) when the kids are home and he has constantly for a week pooped and peed in that crate. He has a kidney shaped bed in the crate so he has no room but to lay down, stand up and turn around on the bed (same bed we used with Cocoa). Now I know for a fact on the weekends, he will eat breakfast and do his business within an hour and go all day without pooping again (while were home and he's not crated), so why do you think he is doing it in the crate? Any thoughts or suggestions on fixing this problem, I'm really getting tired of washing up the blanket we put over top of the bed.
