Puppy Pooping in Crate?

I have a 13 week old Rott. She is overall pretty good. She sleeps in her crate at night without having any accidents. If she has to go out during the night she whines to wake me up. 3 times a week I have to take my four year old son to preschool, I am gone no longer than ten minutes. I make sure she eats around 7am and take her out frequently during the morning and then right before I leave I make sure she poops. I leave at 11:50am and am home by 12pm. Every time I come home she has pooped in her crate, then plays in it and it is all over her, the crate, and sometimes even outside the crate. I feel like I have tried everything and do not know what to do. I have had 2 other Rottie pups in the past and they never did this. Any advice anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated!. Thanks!

  1. Normally you don't leave her in the crate during the day because you're home.
  2. She is doing this because she is angry with you for making her stay in her crate.
  3. Maybe next time you have to leave give her a chew toy to play with when you are gone.
  4. This way she will have something to play with and won't poop in the crate.
  5. I normally use the big rawhide bones and they are wonderful to keep a puppy busy for a few minutes.
  6. You should put her in the crate about 10 min or so before leaving and make sure she is having a good time with her bone.

  8. Then sneak out of the house so she doesn't miss you.
  9. When you come home check on her and see if she has pooped again or not.
  10. She just needs a toy to keep her busy.

Dogs usually do not mess where they eat or sleep. I would call the vet on this one.
