Voiding in the Kennel
Hey everybody. Cthulhu has been voiding in his kennel for the last two days. The first time, he just peed, and I partly blame myself because Erin and I went out for longer than we planned (about 5 hours). Today though, he went this morning on my carpet, then again when I took him outside, and then again in his kennel. I was only gone for an hour and a half, so basically he went three times in 4 hours. The time on my carpet was solid and normal, but the other two were liquidy, and so I wonder if he has diarrhea? I looked online, and it said a change in diet could cause that, I gave him some leftover steak last night so could that be it?
Anyways, I'm rambling. I feel like this is combination stomach trouble, and him having come from a shelter where the dogs voided in their kennels. How can I train him not to do that? His kennel is just the right size for him to stand, sit, and lay comfortably, but he can't void without laying in it. Will putting him in at night help? That way he actually sleeps there instead of just being bored while I'm at class?
Thank you all, I appreciate the help.
