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.

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
