I have a neutered male chi that is 6 months old. I had so much trouble trying to potty train him when he was little. It has started getting better, however I still can't get him to stop going in the crate completely. My other chi had one accident in the crate at 6 mos and has never had another. I have tried smaller crates and he doesn't care, he will go and lay in it. It seems he can't/or won't hold it any more than a couple hours. The pooping has gotten better, now he only does it if I don't wake up precisely at 6am. However he is still peeing in there and I don't know what else to do.
