Thread: Peeing in crate

    I had a large cage for my girl and many yrs ago I learned that puppy litter (compacted paper) is outstanding to use. So in the large cage the puppy litter contained dog poop of his or hers depending on who it was and also contained the urine smell of the puppies urine (when the puppy urinated in house I simply took the puppy litter and laid on top of it so it was absorbed up and then swept it up and placed it back in puppy litter pan. Now this is a process of making sure it has the dogs poo and pee in it so they have their own scent in it. At first they laid in it as though it was a bed and played in it as well but while in the house I would always open cage up and instead of immediately taking them outside I began placing them in the puppy litter pan and would say "go potty" and it worked but we would always go outside afterwards. The point is that I was not always here to make sure they had access to go potty so the puppy litter became their way of being able to relieve themselves without having to have a messy cage. I had a bed and puppy litter in it and a water bottle and a bowl of food so it was like a little apt to them. Now to this day I swear by it but once learned I would place litter pans throughout my house so they would not have any accidents and you slowly work your way to the door with the pans by moving them closer until they have learned how to hold bladder and bowels. My girl Mabel didn't have to have it this time because she learned from using a doggy door so that helped me out greatly. But it is a suggestion and if you should decide to use puppy litter the guy at the store told me that the cat litter same kind different name just smaller pellets is like 8 dollars cheaper so I went with that. It last a very long time as well and it breaks down into a wet dust but so worth checking into.

    This is the puppy litter and pan I would use and this is just compacted paper broke down into pellets, I love it and it was perfect for potty training and you just scoop it out as needed but it sure saved me a lot of time and was great for allowing my dogs to have run of the home but I always always made sure they had a pan in their cage. Just my way of doing it and in the winter months when you have a puppy it is a way of not having to continuously take them outside on freezing cold days as well as in the middle of the night.

    Remi has been excellent in potty training via the crate. Since we removed all bedding, he hasn't peed a single time in about 2 weeks. My question now is, when did you guys start re-adding the bedding back to the crate? Never? Ever? Thanks!!

    That's great to hear!! I would wait a few more weeks to be sure. We waited for about a month until Winston was accident free then we started off with towels because those were easy to wash or just throw away. Good luck!!

    This has been very helpful! I trained Molly Mae in about four days but she still continues to pee in her crate.... She has a big comfy comforter in her kennel and I am washing it almost everyday so I think I am going to try to take it out and see what happens. Appreciate the insight!

    It is totally amazing the plethora of knowledge people have here. No idea what I would do without this community. Next week I will add a small towel and see what happens. It can't be too thin or Remi, out of sheer daytime boredom, will start eating it.
