We have a 6 month old male jrt. He is full house trained in the day and always asks to got (apart from the odd accident that has been down to us not being vigilant) at night is sleep in his crate with a puppy pen around it. We put a puppy pad in the pen so if he needs he can go to the toilet in the night. We are trying to faze this out but it is not working. We have been taking him out for a really late work and closing his crate door (as we were advised he would not mess his own crate) for the last 2 nights but when we have woken in the morning him and crate are covered in poo. So we are going to have to go back to leaving the door open as I don't think this can be a very nice experience for him. Is this about right for his age and dose anyone have any idea when he will be able to go the whole night?
