    Default Baby T likes to pee

    I am having a bit of a problem with Truman and I am at loss about what to do...I'm hoping someone can help.

    Since I came back from Christmas vacation, Truman has taken to peeing in his crate. It doesn't matter if he's in there for 3 hours or 7 hours, he will pee. I have tried removing the hand towel I put in with him so there's nothing to pee on, washing the crate with bleach and water, and nothing seems to be helping.

    He does not pee in the house. He is on Ivermectin for mange but excessive thirst and urination are not a side effect. I pick up his water around 7 PM and put him to bed (which is the time when this is most often a problem) around 11:30 PM. He goes pee right before I put him in his crate - every time.

    What else can I do? He's over 8 months old, I know he can hold it longer but he just isn't. I am convinced this is behavioral.

    Thanks!

    I feel your pain, believe me! Ida, for some unknown reason, goes in her crate overnight, every so often. It's weird, because she'll do it 2 or 3 nights in a row and then quit for a couple weeks. Just as I get thinking she's not going to do it again, she starts over and does it for a couple more nights in a row. Only with her, it's usually pooping in her crate. So, I know I'm not helping at all with your problem, but maybe it's just a short puppy "phase". Ida's been good now for a couple weeks, so I'm hopeful we're done with this. Good luck!

    I won't be much help but are you leaving out water all the time? Maybe limit what he gets. Other than that I'd call the vet if this excessive thirst has just started. Has anything else changed in his life?
    Could be just a phase. I am reworking Bear because he just started marking and thinks its ok to try in the house so I have to literally follow him around to make sure he doesn't hike a leg up and try to pee on something.

    How roomy is his crate? Do you clean it up immediately?

    Perhaps if you let him stew in his mess for a long while he won't be so keen on messing in his crate. But the crate must not be so large that he has room to navigate his mess.

    I had this same problem with Yuna, and it worked putting her in a smaller crate for a while. Once I put her in the bigger one, (I had to because she busted the door of the other one!), she will now go if she feels the need. Go figure.

    Same thing with Jozi we had her
    crate sectioned off to big. I made it
    smaller and she never went in her
    crate again.

    Hope this helps, and things get better
    for Truman.

    @jillh10 wish I knew the answer all I can say is keep trying everything you know and good luck! Did you take him on vacation? He would not be retailiating or anything...i know that's crazy.

    @2bulliefamily I was thinking the same thing! Is her punishing you cause you went away?? Bullies are so smart. I hope you figure it out soon!

    Thanks for the advice. I think I'm going to have to take a bit of room away in his crate for the time being and see if he does better. I think he may have a bit too much room and be able to pee on his towel, then put it off to the side.

    I had this issue with georgia......I noticed that she was waiting for me to let her out after she pee's so i did what desertskybulldogs just suggested and made her sit there for a minute then gave her a bath which she hates. After that no more crate peeing. But she doesnt get crated often anyways only when company comes over because she is stranger aggressive.
