Hi! I have a 4.5 mo old Chi mix who is about 5 lbs. I have been crate training her since we got her at 3 mo. She does well at night in the crate. I get up to take her out after about 5 hrs and then she goes back in. During the day I take her out when she wakes up, after eating, after playing or about every 1-1.5 hrs. If I can’t watch her she goes in the crate. She has peed twice in the crate. Both times I was near by and she only whined after she had peed. I have blocked the crate off so she only have room to stand up and turn around, but she will pee on one side and move just next to it and cry to be let out. Both times it was just over two hours. I keep reading the puppies should be able to hold it for the number of months old in hours - is that only at night? Also, is there anything I can do so she lets me know when she needs to go vs doing it in the crate and letting me know after? Thanks!
