    The food thing continues to work.

    I swear these little piggies.

    Today, for the first time (wheres the drum role and marching band?) .... he whined a little, then headed for the sliding glass door.

    Then he pee'd by the door. He actually tried to go outside to his grass patch but couldn't. I was elated. That is a first for him!

    Another first:

    We were outside, and I waited for him to go potty. He went pee, so I turned around to come back inside.

    This time he stayed outside looking at me anxiously. I said "Not coming? Okay im going back in".

    I went inside and did my thing.

    I then saw him turn around and go back to his grass patch.... and does a # 2 ....

    Seriously wow!

    Same dog who came inside and crapped 3 inches from his potty pad only three days ago.

    The food reward thing truly works. And the hourly trips outside while awake.

    So proud of him.

    Kevin, he IS young (just keep in mind) and not to rain on your parade but with bullies
    it isn't uncommon for them to finally 'get it' do wonderfully a long while then out of the
    blue, regress! Not all do but don't want you to be blindsided IF it happens & think you're
    doing things wrong. EB's are not dumb nor do they do things to bug us purposely, they
    are just not as motivated like most dogs are to PLEASE us, they please themselves~altho
    in this case, your 'lil guy is just a baby & still learning! Food IS their prime motivator so
    use it Patience, consistency, schedules, calmness & lots of praise & love shown will work.

    whenever out of the crate. Also many bullies will pee if anything other than plastic tray is
    in their crates, both of the bullies I've had, a male & now, a female...will always pee if left
    a cushion or towel in crate. Just hand in there, lots of EBs once potty trained stay trained!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Yes, I have found that just when you think you've got it made, and they are potty trained-they regress for a bit. It seems like it happens about 4/5 months old. Hang in there-we (I'm guessin') have all been there!! Keep on keepin' on!

    I've heard of this occurring in pet store dogs who are accustomed to peeing where they sleep on account of being locked in a cage 24/7. Being raised in such a condition causes them to ignore their natural instincts to not make a mess where they nest and can be extremely difficult to correct. When you take him out to pee be sure and praise the hell out of him when he goes where he is supposed to. Same thing with the pee grass setup you have inside. Also would take away his water a couple of hours before bed time so as to reduce the likelyhood that he will need to go overnight in his bed.

    If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.

    We had this issue with Brutus! We decided to take everything out except his toys and it worked perfect! No more accidents! I did feel back leaving him on the bare crate but he learned his lesson after a couple months (10 to be exact) and now he gets his blanket which is usually put into a ball that he sleeps on! At one point he was even eating the blanket

    I still have a dilemma with the whole night time crate thing.

    If I close the crate (divided into a potty area and sleeping area inside) he literally will scream and yell for 10 hours straight. He even stuck his leg through the crate hole then got stuck, tried to yank it back, started yelping in pain. He's seriously a mental wreck when the crate is closed even though its a wide open wire/metal crate. Not an enclosed feeling plastic one. He will bark and yelp for hours, and hours and hours nonstop and look like a train wreck in the morning. It does not improve with time.

    On the plus side, he will poop and pee almost totally in the potty area, though he rips up the potty pad and crap is smeared all over there.

    So I tried leaving his crate open last night, allowing him to play in his playpen area, and (hopefully) poop in the potty area of the crate.

    Woke up today to total slilence and a happy puppy....

    With 4 (yes four) huge poop piles ....

    But they were outside the crate, smeared all over the floor of the playpen.

    And 3 more (yes a total of seven) poop piles in the potty area of the crate.

    his stuffed animal was laying in two poop piles. it was smeared and covered in crap.

    It took me over 30 minutes to clean up this mess.

    This is what happens when i leave the crate door open. He isn't breaking his arm or vomiting from stress or barking all night.
    But he craps and pisses everywhere anywhere.

    @Baxter Tiberius It is not normal for a puppy to poop so much in one night. Something is very off with his digestive system. What time do you feed him? Try dividing his feeding in 3 servings one early morning, then noon, then 5 pm. Take him for a walk about an hour after eating his dinner. Walking helps with the after dinner poop. This should help with the night time poop issues.
