pooping in crate

How do you successfully crate train when the puppy doesn't seem to mind pooping in it? Yesterday was difficult after a nearly flawless day before. I just finished cleaning out his crate. He went out a little while ago and pooped, then came in and did more half hour later in the crate, then on the floor. GRRRR. The good news is that the poop is at least a bit more solid. I think he has had a tummy ache.

He is a small baby and he has gone through a lot during last week - separated from his canine family, traveled to your home, met Gryff, your family... Plus tummy ache! Give him time (and peace) to settle down adn get accustomed to the new situation.
Litte Jonx looks so much like Roki whe he was a puppy!
Lot of hugs and kisset to all of you

Couldn't agree more. Since this is my first puppy I don't have too much in terms of advice, but try to not compare Jinx and Gryff, which might be why you're frustrated. Timmy is about 16 weeks now and I can finally say I'm getting his signals to go out to potty and we haven't had an accident in over a week. Since you're a dog veteran with having Gryff you know if will turn out fine, but I understand the need to vent.

I saw a create that had a divider with a door way from the bed area. I think that seemed like a good idea. It also had two exterior doors so the potty area door can be accessible from out side too. If I had to do it again I might think of this system. Although I'm a cheep scape and would try to make my own.

Try to only give him his meals and training treats. This way you have a better idea of when the poop comes and it becomes a schedule for you both.

He is having some really nasty explosive diarrhea. I'm on my way to the store for some canned pumpkin. He is mostly on a good schedule and going outside, but he can't quite hold the runs.

Poor baby. He seems quite happy, but I'll bet internally he's still a bit stressed out.
