My 6 month old chi puppy Chloe seems to think it's perfectly fine and normal just to let go and go potty in her crate whenever she feels like it! Poo, pee, she does it all. We even adjusted her crate to make it smaller so she only has enough room to lay down, to discourage her from thinking she could go potty at one end and sleep at the other, but she's made no improvement what so ever. I can't understand what's wrong with her! It's like she doesn't get potty training, not a single bit, I'm starting to wonder if she's EVER going to get it! She's already 6 months old and she hasn't improved since day one. I take her to her potty pads every hour or two, everytime she wakes up from her naps, everytime she's done playing, eating, or drinking, and she'll go on her pads, but it never fails that whenever she's back in her crate I'll hear her crying, which means she just went potty in her crate and wants someone to come clean it up! It's really frustrating and everyone here is tired of cleaning up puppy poo all day! :x We took her to the vet and theres nothing wrong with her, no UTI, she's not sick, she just doesn't seem to understand that going potty in her crate is a really gross habit! She'll also go potty anywhere else she feels like it, beds, couches, carpet, living room floor, we can't trust her anywhere for a second. As soon as she starts to go, I'll pick her up and run her to her potty pads, but she still hasn't made the connection that it means she's not supposed to potty there. I'm getting really hopeless and sadly everyone else in the house is really sick of her, because she cries ALL of the time, and howls all night, and now her potty training problems isn't making them like her much more either :cry: I'm going to be starting college in July, so everyone is suggesting that it's not a good idea for me to keep her if she's STILL not going to be trained by then :? I don't want to believe them but if they are right, I can't have her crated all the time and howling and crying when I'm in an apartment. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
