I need some serious help! My 5 month old (I believe) has been given too much freedom with his eating and drinking regimen. Here is the most recent problems, pooping and eating it in the crate, then throwing it up later. It has been a huge mess and and trying to resolve it by Accent on the food for the taste-but this would have been continued if my husband had not assumed the dog stopped the behavior (not witnessing it). Also he does not eat like normal dog. Treats are great, but he could really careless about eating his food. Treats have not been given in abundance b/c of this but he still has almost no desire to eat. So with that said my husband has been letting him eat whenever he wants (the measured amount down whenever he feels like finishing it). I believe this will solve the problem to stick to an eating schedule of (staring him) by leaving his food available only for 30 minutes then taking away-same with water(I think he is watering down his poop if that is possible by drinking too much and to control the peeing). Will any of these things solve my issue? I'm open to any other suggestions on how long to keep this up b/c a couple of weeks going well then laxing on the idea (b/c we don't have an issue at the moment) then creating a big one to start over. More or less I'm having problems convincing my lazy husband to stick to a routine.
