Okay I have a 6 month old GSD who just will not hold her pee or feces while in her crate when I am gone even for just a little bit. Is it too late to crate train? I really do not like it because she ends up sitting down in it.
How big is your crate? I crate trained my Samoyed as a 2yr old. I was on the crates are cruel bus for a while but learned the mistake of my ways quickly. She occasionally had an accident but it was not every time. Right before she went in we went for a potty walk and once she was done right in the crate and as soon as she got out back out for a potty walk. Never put her in if she didn't go before, made me late to work a couple times but she got it and has been great since.
