Hi everyone , I could really use some pointers. I got a bichon who is 3 1/2 months old. I am out of work until June so He will be about 4 1/2 months when I go back. He is fine at night using the crate and sleeps through the night. I am trying to get him used to being alone during the day for when I go back. I tried the crate for an hour and he pooped in it and it was everywhere. I bring him out before he goes in. I also tried using a spare empty bedroom that we have and he has his crate with the door open , food water toys and puppy pads. He pooped everywhere , walked in it , got it all we the walls when he was scratching .. it just nervous that when I start to leave him he will do it and I will be gone for 8 hours. I can have a walker come 2x a day, but that still won’t stop him from pooping when he is nervous. Any ideas??
