I rescued and 11 yr old male min pin last Friday. I'm accustomed to larger dogs . . . but we're going to be just fine, eventually. I've got a crate question. I've never crated my dogs but was told at the shelter that he was accustomed to being kenneled at night (and, as I work nights that's not a horrible thing). Every night though, he is urinating on his blankets or kennel pad (he doesn't defecate in the kennel). We'll see my vet on Thursday, and I'll probably ask for a urinalysis just to be sure nothing's wrong (but the vet at the shelter didn't think that he had any issues in that area). He is older, and has anxiety issues. He got some anxiety related behaviors that they (shelter director and vet) felt were from being in the shelter with all the related noise / activity. We'd all anticipated that they would resolve in a quieter environment, time will tell (fly catching ~ snapping at the air). He takes some CBD oil to help with anxiety (prescribed by shelter vet). I'm looking for advice on how to break this urinating in his kennel. I do take him outside immediately before putting him in the kennel when I leave for work and give him a small treat. I leave for work @10:30, and am home between 7:30 / 8 am. He did pee inappropriately the first day home from the shelter, but not since -- with the exception of night-time / on kennel bedding. No other dogs in the house at this time (my last senior rescue died at Christmas time, after 17 months here), I do have two adult cats - and was told that he's lived with cats previously (and they don't seem to bother him at all). Thanks for any input / advice.
