Apollo is proving to be a wonderful puppy in every respect but one...potty training!I need some expert advice please! I am getting desperate, I don't know what I am doing wrong. Apollo is getting so he will potty outside after much playing and running about, but I can never get him to poop outside when I take him out--I have spent all day outside with him waiting...and waiting..nothing! He seems to be holding it until after everyone goes to bed. I have tried staying up sometimes until 2 in the morning and he will not go..I got to bed and wake up to a mess-I can't catch him in the act! The crate just doesnt seem to be working, he seems to think he is supposed to poop and peein there, and every morning I wake to a smelly pup who doesnt seem to mind laying in it! I tried making it smaller with the partition so he only had room to lay down in there but that doesnt work either. So any ideas about now would be great! Why isnt the crate working? Should I try a different approach? He's only ten weeks old, is this something common with his age or am I just failing terribly? I know he's still a baby, and I'm not angry with him just baffled. What to do?
