Well bane is getting big and is doing great at potty outside (still can't stop him from eating it). However he ALWAYS pees in his crate the second you put him in their for any reason.  He doesn't seem to care even at night and will curl up right next to it and go to bed.  We take him out before he goes in it every time and no longer has accidents in the house. I'm willing to try anything as he loves to cuddle and smells like pee every morning.

Oh my haha I really don't know what to say ! That's different lol well Ares used to do that and never could figure out why he would to do that but he hasn't done that in a long time ! I guess how I got him to stop is male diapers. He still is only allowed to snuggle with us on the bed if he's in his diaper lol he's  cute but i still don't trust that puppy bladder ! So I think maybe he connected the dots himself cuz sleepy time is not go potty time ! Of course we take him potty before he goes to his crate and we never have a diaper on him in his crate ! But that's what worked for us! 

Every puppy is different ! Maybe give it a try and see how it works for you cuz it worked like a charm for us lol I ended up buying regular diaper though cuz the other ones were so expensive. I buy the luvs night guard unscented :) but like I said that's only when he's on our bed snuggling not in his crate!

For the poop eating my boy has never done that but have you tried those treats that make them not want to eat the poop ?

Well we clean up right away and don't give him the chance anymore but we gotta b quick :) lol. And so weirdly when bane sleeps in the bed with my husband ( I sleep in couch from back problems). He doesn't EVER have accidents.  I agree pet diapers are way to spendy when child's diapers do the same :) we used them for lex when he was down with a slipped disk (still wobbles and taking it day by day). Banes a crazy boy, so many weird quirks :)) lol

Thanks :). I think I've figured out part of our problem...  When we go out to go potty we go in our "kennel". All potty is done there and then they can play in the yard.  Last night when I crated bane (lex doesn't crate at all anymore :)) I noticed we tell him "kennel" for the crate too.  I think he is trying to do good by pottying in the "kennel".... Man how we didn't miss that!!  Also I woke early this morning and was really quiet and seen that just after bane wet in his crate, dear sweet lex came and marked on carpet and edge of crate!!!! I think the peeing is a big territory thing!! Bane pees lex marks over and the cycle continues! Today I will vinegar spray and baking soda around kennel and maybe put lex in a diaper overnights and if banes in his crate.  Just like brothers huh :))

Lol well at least now you know what the issue is you can at least solve the problem :) Im happy you now can start to work on a solution!!!! 

Ya I think I would use the diapers for both till they learn the difference :) maybe use a different word for bed time :) I use go night night lol and Ares will give me this look like but your bed is so much better! Makes me laugh every time ! I love the dobie expressions he has one for everything Hahahaha
