Imagine an x-pen with a crate inside. Inside the crate is sheep skin and suade.

Peepads in the x-pen, water and food bowl along with some toys.

Day #1 slept in crate pees on peepad small poop on floor of x-pen but he slept in
crate all night long
Next poop I caught him just getting ready to poop in the crate on the sheep skin grabbed him up to go outside and poop fell of in the crate.

Day #2 does not let us know when he wants to go out. Will still pee on pads
pooped in the xpen again. Did not sleep in his crate on night of day 2

Day#3 got up this morning and there are 3 poops in the CRATE. I took out the
sheepskin and am washing it. crate is also out of the xpen. I need to
wash xpen floor with something that won't hurt him but so he won't go
poo in the xpen again. Not sure what to do with the crate

When we go out, I don't play or talk to him so he will poop and pee but he keeps trying to get me to pick him up and just either stands on his hind legs for me to get him or will lay at my feet. He has only peed outside twice and no poops.

Need suggestions PLEASE

JMM I have already fixed the pen to one panel wide and two panels long. I put a dab of poo on the pee pad. Pup went on the pen floor and decided to walk in it. I have been here all day with pup but seems the min. I leave the room he goes poo.

Actually the first night he slept all night and didn't get up except to pee on the pee pad. He goes out often but it's so hard to tell if he is even squating. I have a spot in the yard with poo on it too.

I have the panel down to one panel by one panel and a peepad on most all of it. He doesn't mind walking into pee or poo.

In all my years of having dogs I have never see a dog that would walk through poo. Something makes me wonder if the puppy was allowed to poo and pee anywhere. How do you feel about tiny bits of cheese as a treat?

I know it has only been two days and he needs to learn. We do not let him run the house.

Thanks for the reply. I have been a dog trainer for twelve years on obed. Never had any potty issues so this is a first for me.

I think your right about him going whenever he wanted to at the breeders. I just blocked his crate to make it much smaller. It's a small crate as it is but now he has very little room.

He is in the pen now with peepad at one end. It amazes me how the little guy can hold it all night and during the day goes when and where he wants to.

Actually hubby was in the room when he pood, hubby was facing him and reading an article looked away long enough to read a paragraph and in that short time he pood. He didn't scold at all just got paper towels and cleaned it up.

We don't scold for those things at this age. He is learning and we know that. I do believe the breeder just didn't care about it like we do.
