I've raised 4 puppies in last 2 years and this one has me baffled.

12wk old can sleep 10pm to 6am without a problem, but can't go from 7:30-11am without peeing in crate. At lunch, she will go outside and potty, but pee's again in crate from 12:30 to 3:30 when daughter gets home from school.

See is fed in morning, but water is very limited. (this morning none)

The amount in crate is very small but still get's her wet. The crate is small also. She can not stand at full height.

Do I go to even smaller crate? Thanks Warren, forgot to mention $144 later no UTI everything normal.

It's like she gets out and starts hunting worms or playing and forgets to take care of business

Baffled in least about the puppy, but not about the coach.

Hey Jeff,

The males dont seem to have this problem.....i've got 3!! However, I will say give her some time. In my experience, the females ALWAYS take longer to potty train than the males...I don't know why. I just accept it for being what it is and make sure I am putting forth the effort!! I know you are doing the same! Has she seen pigeons yet?? Mine are crazy for them!!
Thats awesome!! Mine are bold and fearless as well...good luck with the crate training!
