So our little maltese, Sasha, has been pooping in the house more often. She HATES the cold & snow (and she has a coat). Forget walks, she won't go!!! Anyhow, we take her out frequently (either in the front or the back) and will stay out there until she does something.
Well, we have been crating her at night because she has a tendency to just poop near the door (without letting us know) in the middle of the night. I take her out for the last time quite late ~ 1am or later.
So, do you think it is ok to crate her at night to prevent her from pooping in the house? She really hates it & would prefer to sit on top of her favorite pillow on a bed, but I don't want to wake up to poop on the floor.
My husband gets up early with my son, so it isn't like she has to hold it for long...she just doesn't like to poop in the cold!
