    Do your pup (and yourself) a favor. Crate him/her while you are gone and at night. Things will go a lot easier.

    Yeah, I would but my partner thinks it would be "cruel" to crate her and not our other dog, who is 3 years old and no longer pees on the carpet. Here's a pic of the puppy (she's 7 months old). Normally, she doesn't pee on the carpet, but if we're gone for any length of time she just can't hold it. That comes with age, I guess.

    Like Bill Maher said the other night, everyone should have the right to marry, share expenses, and never have sex again, just like straight couples. :D

    It's not cruel. If she is 7 months it might be to late, she probably won't like being put in the crate if she is used to running around, but many dogs like the security of being in a crate. Our current dog got to the point she didn't like it any more, but our last dog would go into the crate to sleep and when things were just getting hectic. A dog will not mess in its own space (small space). It will almost always hold it. My secretary is currently training a 6 month old pup. I suggested the crate to her and the pup is doing real good. The first few days the pup peed as soon as it got out of the crate. Now it can hold it until it gets outside. Its the best way, and really the most humane way to train a pup.

    I agree. Our first dog (the 3yo) we crated when we left the house. Her crate was her security space, whenever she was frightened or we scolded her for something, she'd run to that crate. We didn't do that with Sammy (the pup) because she was already about 4 months old when we got her. She was less than an hour away from being euthanized at the pound when we rescued her. I'm hoping that as she gets a little older, her bladder size will increase. She can hold it all night just fine, but I think when we leave, she does it more out of spite than not being able to hold it, perhaps. <sigh> Children! :sure: She is half beagle and half Alaskan Huskie, an interesting combination, as you can see in the pic. She's not the brightest dog I've ever had, but she is very affectionate and docile. Jesse, our other dog, is part black lab and some kind of terrier. She looks like a lab. She is VERY smart, almost too smart for her own good :) She was a rescue, too, was about 6 weeks old when we got her, she couldn't walk, had no fur, had to have 2 blood transfusions because the fleas had drained her so badly. Not anymore!
