No but there arent any crates in the wolf pack either. And on top of that there arent any carpets that people have spent thousands of dollars on, hardwood floors that cost about the same, people who have to get up and goto work at 8 a.m. and cant wait the hour outside to calmly wait for their dog to drop a duece while the 3 kids are inside needing help with homework, need dinner, showers, work that has been brought home.
true, no wolf packs have crates , they have dens in woodpiles and caves..
however, if you have to get up and leave by 8 to go to work, then i say get up an hour earlier to work with your dog on going potty... i have to be at work at 8:30 yet i am at work every day by 8 in case i need to take time off i have already have time saved, i get up an hour earlier then i have to so that all 3 of my dogs and the foster dog go potty , exercise and eat breakfast, but not in that order...
if you are complaining about the cost of your carpets and hardwood floors, then dont have a dog. ,or , properly crate train the dog to go potty accordingly.. as far as kids, showers, dinner goes, i clean my house, take care of all 4 dogs for food, training exercise and potty, cook dinner for my husband, take care of whatever has to be taken care of, answer the phone for when the cops call for tows, etc, yet i have only had a few accidents from foster puppies in my house, and my fosters are tied to my hip with a long line so that i know where they are at all times..
if the dog is having the runs then something is wrong.. if the dog is just pooping regular poop in the house that is because he is not on a schedule.. no routine = no potty schedule... if you put your dog on a schedule/routine it will come easier.
for example i am up at 5:30 all 4 dogs go out for potty.. they all usually just pee. back inside 15 minutes later to feed them.. all 4 eat, and right after eating they are all outside again for poop. now, the puppy cant hold it like the adult dogs do, so he must go out for poop after eating.. the adult dogs usually just pee, and they dont poop until an hour after they eat.. so i know their schedule. , they are all on a routine.. i also threw them a party and treats the minute they all pooped as puppies growing up, so that they know.. i still to this day praise them for going pee and poop outside.. and they are 5, 4 and 12 years old..
