    No its not tiny. When we moved we threw out the divider like morons. I'm looking for a new one but if I can't find one I may just have to bite the bullet and go out and buy him a new crate.
    Nope does not make it through the night. He's in there at night for about 6 hours max.

    I will admit when we got Tubby we were clueless. Tubby was a Christmas gift from my fiancee and we winged it. We would put him in his crate when we knew he had to pee so I know we instilled that habit in his head. I'm just surprised at him because if he has to go out and I'm awake he comes to bark at me and its not like it was way past his bedtime walk

    HE JUST WENT IN THERE IN AND

    Ohhhhh dear! lol! Now...you can move forward! I have heard of people using crates or boxes to take up space in the crate. Personally..I think an entirely new crate is needed. You need to start from scratch and Tubby will be confused. But..we now know why! He will catch on..back to basics and treat him like a brand new pup! If you don't, you will have a very bad big Bully!

    I think a new crate is our best option. That way he won't associate the bad behavior we taught him with this new crate. I deserve a million for failing this poor guy in his early months.

    Well...don't be too hard on yourself! We all make plenty of mistakes and thankfully, these wonderful bully's..don't hold it against us! Get your crate...give him a tiny area..NO bedding...and we will start over! I bet he gets it pretty quickly. I wouldn't give him free access to the new crate either. For awhile, it should be his resting place..NOT his bathroom! Lol

    He is really thriving. We are feeding him in there as well so I think he's starting to like the crate. I on the other hand feel horrible seeing him in that tiny little crate.

    Thanks for checking on us

    Don't feel bad. The crate is not a bad place. Think of it as safety insurance for both his well being and a saving grace for your cabinets and sanity. They really do get to love it.

    ooooh we are right there with you! Daisy is horrible. She will just say ohhh I have to pee right now and go where ever! And with the 5 am thing that is what we do. I get up then and take her out and feed her breakfast. Then at 8 my bf will be doing the same thing. If I let her go with out taking her out within those hours she will poop in her crate. But I think we are gonna have to go back to the basics too. No blankies in her crate. She still pees in there on a regular basis... Its tough to deal with!!!

    Its so tough. Tubby hasn't had a blankie or bed since February. It just breaks my heart but I'd rather us suffer now then for the next 10 years.
