I got my BRAT foster boy yesterday. He is a tri B and 10 months old. the family that turned him over got him from a pet store. They also crated him 8-10 hours a day, and sometimes at night too.
He a really sweet, good with people and other dogs. He hasnt had one accident in the house, but there is a major problem with crating him.
We have to leave and crate him when we go to work. He was crated for 5 hours and when my DP came home on lunch to let him out he had pooped and peed in his crate. She cleaned up, took him out, and left. When I got home 2 hours later, he had pooped again. and he runs around like a crazy man so he gets the poop everywhere!
He is in a veri kennel now bc thats all i have but i am getting a wire cage. I'm a little afraid to put him in an all wire cage bc then the poop will get outside the cage too.
And I took him for a walk when i got up (5am) and DP took him when she got up at 7:30am. He pooped at 7:30am and she left shortly after that.
What do I do?? How do I stop him from pooping in his crate? Please help!
