I'm done discussing this. I see it was a mistake to post here. Have a nice Christmas.

If you don't mind my asking, what made you think spanking a dog would work to begin with? Was it something you saw being done by other people?
This post is not rude, this person is genuinely curious.
People have been extremely polite in this thread, all things considered.

People have been very nice about the situation. And if you didn't want to talk about it, you probably shouldn't have started the thread.

Have you consulted with your vet to make sure there's not a physical problem causing her to mess her cage?

How long are you gone when she pees/poops in her cage? If she were mine and I could make shorter trips that's what I would do ... if she goes when you've been gone for 3 hours, go home in 2 hours and let her out. If that's impossible hire someone within the time frame she needs to relieve herself to take her out.

Nikitta...

Merry Christmas...you are human, we ALL make bad judgement calls in the heat of the moment, whether it be snapping at someone we love or don't even know...it's a stressful time of year, nobody knows what may have happened or is happening in your life that may have triggered a moment of weakness. What is important to note, is that you feel bad, so you are not a bad dog owner - maybe a frustrated one...but you care how she feels and that makes you a loving dog owner...

She may be stressed depending on what is going on with you in your life and this is the result...anxiety.

You'll figure it out

Which would make sense, if it had only just started happening.
However, Nikitta has been advised since she joined that slapping and spanking her dogs was not the way to handle them.

And in the end, this is what matters.

Since you are looking ahead to what's best for the dog now, one suggestion:
spend a lot of time over the holidays praising her like she's made you the happiest human on the planet when she pees and poops outside.

One of the most vexing things for me to rehabilitate with a foster is a dog that's been punished for peeing and pooping in the wrong place, as it becomes very hard to teach them to go in the right place if they are fearful of doing business in front of a human. These dogs won't potty on a leash, as they think "potty makes the human scary, so human must not see when I potty." That's sometimes a very hard issue to rehabilitate, once the dog gets that in their head -- so it's worth doing some work now to convince your pup pottying makes you happy.

msvette...Not aware if this as ongoing, I just commented based on she did not imply anyone was being rude.

There is something going on with her personally and if this transferance onto the dogs is the result, then she would need to get to the root cause, her anxiety is causing the dog anxiety, then she needs to get to HER root cause and needs support to get there.

I am NOT condoning hitting, spanking or other...she may be overwhelmed and not have been able to find the patience to take and implement any advice she may have got here...just like dogs, some humans need more help, guidance then others AND they both need a soft touch
