Puppy Poops in Crate

I just got a 7 week old Pit Bull puppy. I crate trained my Cocker Spaniel, so I am trying to do the same for my Pit. She is messing up the crate and when I put her in the kennel she did the same.


When I am at work during the day, I think she has separation anxiety from her mother. She whines, cries, and she poops all over the crate. It is all over everything, even outside of the crate. When she is in the crate at night in my room, she doesn't do that. However, when I come home from work everything is a mess including her.

How can I stop her from putting poop all over the entire crate, outside the crate, and on herself? She gets so fussy and upset until she destroys the crate with poop. Even if I put a toy or blanket in there it gets destroyed with poop, too. Please help.

Puppy Poops in Crate

You are not supposed to start crate training until around 16 weeks of age especially with a breed like a Pit Bull that needs a lot of stimulation. I have been training dogs for 5 years and I specialize in power breeds and bully breeds (Bulldogs, Pitbulls, Mastiffs, Boxers, Rottis, etc). (04/16/2010)

She is in the crate too long. Puppies can have a bowel movement a lot when they are young. Your baby is also bored and needs more human contact during the day. (04/20/2010)

Please listen to JelloPudding! A Cocker Spaniel is a much different breed than a Pit Bull! Perhaps you could find a puppy sitter until she is potty trained and until obedience trained after that! Whatever you do, please do not punish him because that will cause more problems! And also check in to what time to feed and how long before a puppy needs to poopy after eating! (04/20/2010)
