Crate training is an excellent way to provide your dog with a safe place to rest when you're not able to keep an eye on him, but dog pooping in a crate is a common problem many pet owners have. In this video I'll explain how to stop a dog from pooping inside a dog crate and what to do to prevent this from happening.

Read the full written instructions here:

A crate isn't a full time babysitter for your pet, but rather a tool that should be used until your dog has been completely housetrained. Learning how to stop a dog from pooping in a crate is an essential part of crate training your pooch.

"If you feed your pet at the same time every day, he's going to need to use the bathroom at about the same time every day. When you keep a consistent schedule, you'll be able to ensure that you (or someone else) are home to let your dog out when he needs to go."

    1. She will after she realizes her only choice is either go starving or eat the dry food. But, you will have to be patient though that’s the hardest part.

  3. What do you do if your dogs goes potty and still when you come home 2 hrs later there is still pee and poop in the kennel? She even lays in it and doesn’t care. Been to vet, healthy dog.

I thought it was just me I will walk her often she does it outside and come home she will do again in her cage house, I’ve lesson he food taken her vet vet say she healthy and that she will grow out of it she is 5 months but I never had this problem with my other two dogs I previously had. I’ve tried everything nothing seems to be working … please if anyone has any suggestion please let me know imma but to have a hero us breakdown with this pup, I also put her on treadmill which tiers her out as she has loads of energy which will burn that energy off, with also the 2 hr walks I do, lol she tiers me out, what I don’t understand is that even if she up at night she won’t poo through out the whole night so I know she fan hold it, I’m starting to think it a bahavioural problem but vet say she ok

  4. i got a 1 1/2 yr old from the pound…. the crate is the correct size, and he doesnt pee, only poops when i go out, i make sure he goes BEFORE i crate him, its happened 3xs in one week, im self employed so hes not left alone for more that 6 hrs max and hes been fine overnight. hes been pooping within 2 hrs or so…..i’ve successfully trained 4 dogs with crates, they were all puppies tho… stumped!!

  5. You don’t push on a dog’s rear end to get it to sit down, especially a Lab who is more prone to develop hip dysplasia.

  6. I changed the crate i pit her bowl to feed her in the crate and she pooped in the food bowl i am so done been goin thru this for 2 months i love her but i cant have her doing this

  7. Oh yeah and she gets up at 6am barking and goin crazy i take her out no noise at night but she pees by morning in the crate i clean it and with in 5 mins she pees in it again

  8. I took my puppy from a dog foster home about a year ago. I love him to bits; he has a great personality, and I feel that he loves our family so much. BUT, whenever I leave him at home he pees in the house: on the carpet, on the bed, on flowers… My husband and I were thinking about taking him to ‘doggy school’, but then again, it’s extremely expensive, and the nearest ‘doggy school’ is far away from us. Maybe you have some advice? THANK YOU!!!!

    1. Slammy Dunk same here I have the same issues I can take my dog out every 20 mins if I’m off work he still manages to pee in his crate he won’t use it on the floor only on his crate

    2. mine will poop in her crate even if the crate is not too big she will go on the pad in the bathroom or even on the carpet and hardly potties outside. She is almost 1 and I’ve had her since she was 5 weeks. Sooooooo frustrating!!!!
