gsp peeing in crate

3 posts in this topic

i picked up a new gsp pup 12 days ago, she is 8 weeks and 2 days old. the problem i have been having since friday night is she pees in her crate. she was fine sunday thru friday, but saturday morning it was wet. i blocked off the back half of the crate with an adjustable wall that i can move back as she grows, but this didn't seem to help. the area in there now is only twice as big as she is, just enough to turn around and lay down. i took out the towel we had in there for her to lay on tuesday, thinking that it was soaking it up and not making it seem wet to her, but she still goes pee in the crate. she won't poop in there (not yet anyway). she is let outside every day to go to the bathroom and play every three hours, day and night, whether we are there or not, (i have a good friend that i am going to owe alot of cases of beer to for letting her play during the day wink.gif), plus any other time we are with her and she starts sniffing around. i don't think she is nervouse when she is in there, she hardly makes a peep anymore and sometimes she is sleeping in the middle of the night or the morning when we go to let her out. she has only gone in the house a couple of times when we weren't watchting close enough, she sure is a quick little squirt that can be hard to keep track of. grin.gif i don't mind cleaning it up, but i really don't want her to get used to sitting in it. i'm afraid that if that happens, we will never get her house trained and she will be a very dirty dog. frown.gif she won't be in the crate during the day very much longer, i am building a kennel as soon as the ground thaws for her to be in during the day, but i would like to have the crate problem fixed before it is too late. i know this is getting long but i wanted to include as much info as possible. any advice would be greatly appreciated as i have no other ideas on how to fix this. confused.gif

I pretty much just went through that with two pups. Sounds to me like you are on the right track. Rememeber, she is only 8 weeks old. She'll figure it out in no time. stay the course.

I've had pups with bladder or vaginal infections do this. Watch puppy when outside to see if she countinues to try and pee numerous times after going the first time, with little or no discharge after first time. If that is case take urine sample and have vet test it. Vet may want to see dog too.

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
