I need help with my 8 month old chihuaha soiling her crate. She doesn't do it all the time, she has gone all night without soiling. I have had her one month, I don't feed her after 4:30 and she doesn't get water after 7pm. I take her out when she first wakes up and after each feeding. I could use some advice.
if she was already crate trained befor you adopted her she perhaps is just going through a adjustment stage, something in her schedule has changed and she is trying to adjust, dogs usually do not like to pee or poop where thay sleep, in many cases the crate may be to large and the pup feels almost invited to do there buisness. be thankful its a small breed leaving you presents, i am loving owner of several of my own best friends, my youngest being a great dane, at 12 weeks old he is already leaving puddles and mountains for mom and dad to pick up off the carpets and new wood floors,theres a reason they make puppys cute ;)
