8 month old who poops in crate
My 8 month old Puppy won't stop peeing/pooping in her crate. Help! This happens almost every time she is put in her crate and left alone. I switched her to a better food several months ago, which hasn't helped. I take her out all the time, which only slightly helps. Even if she has just pooped sometimes she'll still poop in her crate. If I'm in the same room as her, shes fine in her crate, for the most part anyways. As soon as I leave the room or house, she freaks out and craps and pees herself. It has happened in literally two minutes before, where I'll leave her and then she'll be quite for like thirty seconds and I'll go check on her and she'll have soiled herself. I'm home all day so she gets plenty of love and attention and exercise, but as soon as I leave she craps. I take her out all the time too. I don't know what else to do. Her crate is a carrier thats as small as I can get for her. Shes 12lbs and she has the second to smallest carrier available. The smaller one is waaaay to tiny, so its not the crate size. Does any one have any ideas on how to help???? I know a lot of it has to do with her anxiety, but I don't know how to show her I love her any more.
