Dog Pees in Crate When Left Alone

I have taken in a now 1 year old pup. When I got her she was maybe 8-9 months. She was not crate trained correctly. The owner let her pee on the pee pad in the crate all the time. And she would not pee outside when taken out, she thought it was play time. She would only pee when she wanted to outside. I have since trained her to pee outside right away. But now I have the problem of her peeing inside the crate when I'm not home. How do I stop this?

This isn't going to be easy:

  1. The dog was trained to pee in her crate from the time she was a small puppy.
  2. You didn't get the dog until it was almost 9 months old.
  3. Your dog now has the habit and believe it is fine to pee in the crate anytime it wants.
  4. You will need to remove everything from the crate.
  5. Before you put the dog in the crate and are ready to leave the dog must go outside and pee.
  6. Before you leave I wouldn't give the dog any water and make sure she pees outside several times before putting her in the crate.
  7. Each time she pees in the crate tell her she is a bad dog and this isn't acceptable.
  8. If she doesn't pee in the crate then you can reward her with a treat.
  9. Be patient, this will take time because your dog feels it is fine to pee in her crate.
  10. You will have to let her know this isn't the correct behavior.
