Our 15 week old HWV girl is such a gorgeous, clever girl. She had adjusted so well, gets commands so quickly and is super affectionate. We have had her for 6 weeks now (feels so much longer!)
We have crate trained her from the start, setting her up in the kitchen / living room area which will be her permanent base and with me sleeping next to her the first 3 weeks. She has been doing very well and got down to sleeping through the night OK a few weeks ago (I am now sleeping back upstairs in our bedroom). She generally doesn't bark anymore at all when put to bed at bed time and throughout the night. 5am is another story though...
However, the last week - maybe 10 days we noticed that every morning we let her out (bedtime is around 9pm, wake up around 6.20am), her vetbed is wet so she had a wee. It's pretty much a daily thing now and I am washing these like there is no tomorrow...She doesn't make any noise / sound when she needs a wee and just does it.... We just think and hope that she will grow out of this in the next couple of weeks (her crate is set to right size with a divider, not too big).
The much bigger concern is that last two nights she had a big accident in her crate and woke me up at 2 - 3am on both mornings to find her in a crate with poo all over...Now, I have made sure she went out to potty before bedtime / after dinner, etc. So I am a little bit concerned about this as obviously, she is distressed by having that kind of accident in there and I'd like this not to become a daily occurrence as with the weeing vetbed is currently...
Any advice will be hugely appreciated!
