put her food and water consumption on a scedual. give her water in the morning, and watch her. wait for any sign of needing to releave herself and as soon as she shows it you pick her up out of the crate and go outside to where ever you want her to go. never let her walk because this could make her pee just walking. then right down how long it takes her to show signs of needing to be releaved. and do this for about a week. this way you can basicly guess when she needs to go pee.
the reason why your dog is releaving itself in the crate could be caused by 1 of 3 main reasons....
1.) your crate is not small enough. the crate should be only big enough for it to stand up, turn around, and lay down. so basicly only big enough for a bed. this is because a dog usualy wont releave itself where it sleeps.
2.) you are not giving your puppy enough exersize. when you take your puppy outside take it for a walk. dont just expect that because she goes potty once shes done. because shes not. shes obviously showing it to you when shes in the crate. you need to give you puppy 5 min of walking for every month old they are. so you must give your puppy 15 min of walking a day at this young age. any less and she will become possibly distructive and any more and you might cause your puppy joint stress.
3.) health problems. if you are truely worried about your dog releaving you should take her to the vet and have her checked out. it could be a start to a bigger health problem down the road. lets hope this isnt one of those cases.
]my dog use to do that #1 is her crate to big she should only be able to turn around sit and lay in it #2 what i did is i gently put her hed in her crate and i taped her and say no no no each time i taped her and she never ever ever did it again .
If you have a plastic vari kennel. You probably can predict now when she is going to pee in the crate.
take the crate, and when the dog refuses to go outside. Stand the crate up on end, with the door to the sky. then put the dog in. The dog will have no option but only to sit unless the crates enormous. But I would leave the dog in there, till they showed me they wanted out, I would take em' outside....they get 2 minutes to go. that's 120 seconds to find a spot and start going. No coxing, no walking, nothing. just go to the bathroom. if they do not go...back to the crate. and if they will lay in it and not care. your going to have to go to a leash and watch them.
I believe a dog's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment he holds dear, is when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-with a ball in his mouth."
