Hey there! I have a 15 month old neutered male GSP. His name is Luke and he's awesome! He's very well trained. He knows all of his basic commands and is pretty good with his out of sight sit and stay. He listens despite a lot of temptations. I crate trained him from day one when I brought him home at 8 weeks old. He's never ever had an issue with his crate until about a month ago. I used to work 3-12 hour shifts per week and he never had an issue. I recently switched jobs and now I work 9 hours M-Th and 4 hours on Friday. Since starting this new position, he urinates in his crate daily while I am at work. I tried taking the blankets out, and making his crate smaller. I don't give him access to water before I go to work. I let him run around and play for about 30 minutes before I go to work and I let him out right before I leave for work. I don't really know what else to try but I have gotten to the point that I dread coming home to a crate full of urine now. Please, any advice?
