Help! Accidents in Crate
I have a 5 month old male GSD. we rescued him when is was 3.5 months. We started with crate training the first night we got him home. a little back story, he was living on a font porch tied up so he really did not have any potty training when we got him. The first few weeks we had him he would not have accidents in his crate, but now.... now he is peeing in his crate almost every night and poops in there during the day. He goes potty right before he goes to bed at night, and first thing in the morning. we have someone who goes over during the day to let him go potty, but it doesn't seem to matter, he is still having accidents.
our schedule for Monday - Friday.
6am- wake up, go outside, water, I get ready (dogs are playing), then we go outside again he gets put in the crate between 7am and 7:15.
1pm- he is let out to potty and play ususally about 30 minutes.
6pm- I get home from work, he goes outside, food and water, goes back outside. then goes outside anytime he needs to during the evening.
Usually goes to bed around 11:30 or 12.
During the weekends, he tends to not have accidents in his crate even though Sunday he was in there from 7am to 4pm
