Alot of show people before they enter the ring want their dog to "empty out" for obvious reasons. They stick a unlit matchstick up the but a little bit which stimulates the dog to drop a duece.
Granted that isnt going to make her stop but at the end of the night or right before work if you have to crate her and leave or want to fall asleep peacefully that can be a lifesaver for you.

i agree with A-bull.. just some basic training to poop outside.. while some dogs after eating will go right away, some wont.. it all depends on when the dog will poop after eating.. right away or a few hours later..
consistant training the old fashioned way of taking the dog out on leash and throwing a party as soon as the poop is done is the way i go.. and i stay outside for as long as it takes, and if its too long back in the house on leash attached to me so that i can stop an accident from happening, but usually if the dog sees how happy you are that he/she pooped, they usually catch on quick

So we would match her inside, then go right outside and wait.
The important part was I clicked and treated while she was pooping. I named the behavior "poop". I praised her, and I ignored poop in the house, firguring it was my own fault for not watching her enough.
She now will poop on command, and is not afraid to poop on leash. Took a month, she had MAJOR trust issues.
For whining in the crate, I use a half a glass of water. I yell "That'll Do" while throwing the water in her face, then fill up the cup again and place it near the crate entrance.
If she started again, I stomped to the crate, yelled "That'll DO" and picked up the water and threw it, then refilled it and put it back.
I now do NOT have to do this more than once, and usually if I say "That'll Do" she shuts up. However, I try to make sure she is exercised, physically and mentally, and she has kongs, bones, etc in her crate. My dogs do not chew on kongs either, the point is to suck out the middles.
My dal/whippt mix has to run before he can poop. It took me a year of him pooping in the agility ring to figure out that the running in the ring made him need to poop, so now we run on leash for a few minutes several times a day at trials to make sure he empties before we go in the ring!
Be patient with her, treat her for pooping outside, use the crate paired with lots of outdoor exercise and training. She'll get it.

Maybe i should have clarified that you dont stick the side that gets lit in there the sulfer may have a damaging effect. but otherwise a little bit of cardboard is really doing them no harm. And personally even if it only take 3 days off the re-housebreaking. 3 days of $h1t spots on my carpet and smelly house is HUGE...

Passing stuff and putting things in a dog's rectum are a bit different.
Maybe the dog doesn't necessarily need to go when you want them to. Aren't there a bunch of people on here who feed raw because dogs are like wolves and that's how wolves eat? Does the alpha in the wolf pack run dog to dog with his matchstick after they all eat??

throwing a glass of water at a dog in a crate could be akin to a squirt bottle disipline.. however, the glass of water is more messier then just ignoring the dog while barking, and then immediately rewarding for being quiet..
everyone has their own way of training, but what works for one wont work for another..
if you dont want your dog to poop while being in a show, dont feed the dog before the show, feed after...
or, get a warm handcloth and rub the dogs butt.. that will stimulate them to poop..
