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!
