Crate Problems

5 posts in this topic

So I have theis new hunting dog, it is a 3 1/2 month old English setter. Great Dog, house broke awsome, and listens great, but it rufuses to not stop pooping in its crate??? I have let it out throught the night, cut back its food, but it stills lets it fly in the crate. I have also made the crate smaller as I was told that this would do the trick. Any help would be great!!! Thanks!!!

My pup had problems last year as well when he was about that age. he did have the runs and I took him in and he had an infection. We got it cleaned up and after a week or two he was much better. Still had an accident from time-time, but got over the big early problems.

Keep doing what you are doing. Get up earlier and let him out later -- that is about all you can do.

I'm not sure about what your feeding schedule is, (the merge and purge schedule), but a barring medical condition I would start there. Feed earlier in the evening and make sure he has plenty of time to play and purge prior to the evening crating. My guess he will grow out of it shortly.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
