Angel: How do I stop my puppy from peeing in her crate?
I have had my puppy for about one week. The first 3-4 nights she had peed and pooped in her crate. I thought that they don’t pee or poop in their “safe place”. I am feeding her two times a day at specific times, 10 minutes at a time. She seems to be healthy. I don’t feed her 6 hours before we go to sleep. I have changed her bedding at least once a day, and sometimes twice and it is wet with urine.
She has not pooped in her crate for a few days. She just keeps peeing. I take her out to go potty shortly after she eats and when she wakes up, and before I go to bed. What am I doing wrong?
Its the smallest crate I could find and she will fit it when she is grown.
She is a Palmerainian Chihuahua

Her crate may be too big. It needs to be just big enough for her to turn around in . If it is too big she can urinate in one spot and sleep in another. Good luck. don’t forget to praise her when she goes outside
