My puppy is 9 weeks old. He sleeps in a crate at night. Even though we take him outside to use the restroom, he waits until he comes back in the house to poop. Why is he waiting? He never uses the restroom in his crate.
He thinks he is doing the right thing b/c you have allowed him to go in the house. I recommend that he go outside every 2-3 hrs ( only in your yard b/c he does not have all his shots yet ). Reward him every time he goes outside. When you see him going in the house quickly bring him outside and show him the right place to go. Give it time and be consistant and persistant. vetcare
