because you did not let him out. Sometimes if the crate is too big for the dog they will still eliminate in it when being trained. As long as the dog was not left in the crate too long is should not go in it's crate.

How do you prevent a dog from defecating in it's crate?

First off you need to make sure the crate is not too big. If you have a small dog or a puppy and you have them in a crate big enough for a full frown German Shepard to sleep in you need to get a smaller crate. Dogs will not poop in an area they know as their den. When its too big for them they will separate it into two areas. One to poop in the other to lay in.

How can I effectively crate train my Chihuahua?

To crate a chihuahua you need to buy a small crate. This will prevent the dog from going to the bathroom in its crate (and save a lot of cleaning for you). Next, every time you put the dog in the crate say crate, or go to bed, so the dog knows when you say that it should go in the crate. If you give your dog a treat they will know that being put in the crate is not a punishment.

Your puppy is not doing well in potty training what should you do you are crate traing her now and all she does is pee and poop in her crate?

Either invest in a smaller crate, or block off a part of a larger crate to make the dogs space smaller. The dog will start the think of the crate as is bedroom, and it won't want to go to the bathroom in its bedroom. If there is room for the dog to go to the bathroom and then lay in another area where it can stay away from the feces, the crate is too big. Dogs do not want to lay in their own feces, so a small crate would help to curb this habit.

Yes, of course. Depending on the model of dog crate you have, there may even be beds which are specifically made for that model.

Another View:Yes, as long as the dog has room to move in the crate.

How do you crate train a puppy?

The first few days you put your dog in the crate, the dog will most likely bark and whine. However, after time the dog will get used to the crate and will stop barking and whining. You should get a crate that is just large enough for the puppy. If you want to buy a large crate because your dog will get bigger, then stick a box or some kind of separator in the back of the crate to make it smaller. This makes it so that the dog will not want to go to the bathroom in its bed.
