I have been crate training my yorkie for the past 2 weeks and I have him on a feeding schedule, once at 645am and at 400 pm. He normally goes poop mid morning and early evening. But for some reason I wake up in the morning to poop in his crate everyday. We take him out every 2 hours up until 10:00pm and then it is bed time. Does anyone have any suggestions to prevent him from pooping in his cage at night?
I have a small crate for him. Also I do stand outside with him, sometimes we are out there for 1/2 hour and all he will do is pee before he goes to bed. I put him in a puppy play pen outside and watch him.
Remember that puppies are like babies. At this age they can’t control every urge to poop. Taking the puppy out frequently during the night and gradually increasing the time between potty breaks will help him gain control.
