Puppies Pooping in Their Crate Every Night?

I have 2 Newfoundland puppies that are 11 weeks old. They are brother and sister. I have a large crate which I divided into 2 sections. I put the puppies in the same side so that they are together. I feed them supper at 5:00pm and take them out until 5:30pm. They always poop and pee for me. The I take them out again at 7:30pm and 10:30pm. Sometime between 12:00am and 2:00am they are pooping in their crate and we get woken up by the smell. I have been trying everything, please help.

This is a common problem an can easily be rectified with a few tips and steps to follow.

Step 1
Time is important. This will determine how long a puppy can hold it before having to go outside to the bathroom. The general rule is the number of months the puppy is plus 1 will give you how many hours your puppy will hold it before going to the bathroom. When the puppy is taken outside make sure you give him enough time to finishing going to the bathroom.

Step 2
Keep your puppy on a schedule for meals. This way you have an idea when the puppy will go to the bathroom.

Step 3
Use a smaller crate. The crate should only be big enough for the puppy to turn around and lie down. Your puppy shouldn't be in their crate for longer than a few hours. Make sure you take the puppy out and give him walks and play time.


Step 4
If you have bedding in the crate, remove the bedding. The puppy can learn to soil their crate and cover it up with their bedding. By removing the bedding this teaches the dog to not soil their crate. The dog doesn't want to lay down in the mess.
