Crate Training

I have a twelve week old Vizsla. After the first week she started peeing in her crate. Not all the time but at least once a day. The crate is the right size, we give her a kong to keep her busy, she gets lots of exercise, she spends most of her time out of the crate. We have had her urine examined for infection twice and both times it has been clear.

All my research and everyone that I talk to, including our vet and our breeder keeps telling me that dogs do not mess where they sleep. Well it seems that someone has forgotten to tell this puppy the rules.

This is not the first time I have crate trained a dog and I have never run into this problem before. I really am at my wits end as to what to do so any suggestions would be appreciated.

have u had her checked for a track infection? also you need a lot of patience with puppies, some dont learn on the first attempts

sometimes when they have been raised in a crate and trained to pee in the crate its hard to have them unlearn that. With persistence and patience you should have success if that is indeed the problem.

Vistlas appear to be difficult to potty train. At work most of our vistlas are there because of it. It takes longer with them. Limit water before bed, and take out after eating playing and sleeping

Potty training a dog is not as easy as it looks. I agree that learning is a long way to go and it cannot be achieved at the first trial.
