I am crate training my 10 week old Husky. She finally is not shy with us anymore. WHen I put her in her crate at times she will howl, moan, bark, and make all sorts of noises. I have to keep her in there at times because she'll poop and pee on the carpet. I don't let her out when she cries at all, I'll wait until she stops and lies down. She stops after while but sometimes it takes like 20 minutes and it gets really irritating.

She is starting to poop and pee outside at least half the time, but sometimes I have to take her outside for a long amount of time for her to do it, which is something that I can't always do. When she uses the bathroom in the house I tell her bad dog and No, and then I put her back into the crate. If she won't use the bathroom when she goes outside, then she goes back into the crate as well.

I know that I'm probably not doing everything right because this is my first time crate training, so I'd like some advice on this and some tips. I am learning in the process and I am doing everything I can to have a good dog. Any feed back would be helpful.

Thanks for the reply. I'm still learning on the job. It's just hard to work right now, because I have to watch her like a hawk either to make sure that she isn't using the bathroom or to make sure that she isn't chewing on something she isn't supposed to be touching. She is starting to get into everything.

SHe has her bone in her crate and some toys as well. I am certain;y trying to make it a positive experience for her for sure. It's just that the minute I take my eyes off of her there is pee on the carpet somewhere. ALl she needs is a few measly seconds and she'll do her thing. I'm just really really trying hard to get her to understand that "potty time" is outside.

We've only had her for like 3 days and she hadn't had that much human contact at all and had never walked on a leash either. She is walking on a leash very well right now I must say. She is just afraid of the stairs where I live, so I have to carry her up and down the stairs and what I'm doing now is putting her like 4 to 5 steps to the top or bottom and making her do small distances at a time to build her confidence up. She seems to love going outside to play though.


I just hope that she'll stop the constant howling and barking. It's to much at times and I really don't want her to resort to that when I'm gone and she is in her crate.
