I was wondering if your pup uses the potty in his/her carrier (i hear a pup usually would)? Can you send a picture of how you set it up. My puppy will be ready to come home soon & I am just checking a few things outI have a large one end for bed other for puppy pad.
I got big crate one side for bed other side for peeing, she very rarely does but if I am gone long time I will not make her hold it. She has to go she has to go.I have to disagree with you.
Putting a pee pad into the crate doesn't help with toilet training UNLESS you are training your dog to think that it's ok to pee in the crate.
Ideally you don't want them to pee in there, and shouldn't leave an untrained pup in a crate for so long that they need to pee.
Imo, a crate should only be used for sleeping, or for short times if you have to go out, never as a toilet.
