We just got our 4 month old little boy. He's great, we got him from a breeder that unfortunatley could not give him enough attention. Subsequently he was left in his crate for most of the day. He has become used to pooping and peeing in his crate. We take him on walks and or let him out every couple of hours or so and he will not do his business outside. What can we do to stop this behavior. He is in good health, eating the same food and is adjustinhg well. We just want to now how to break him of this problem. We are also feeding him in the crate.
I was under the impression that dogs usually will not do their business where they sleep and eat.
p.s. Thanks for the responces to past threads we forget to respond in a timely manor due to work obligations but we appreciate everyones advice.
