GSDmom87 Hollywood, SC 1/27/2015 6:56:38 AM I am taking in ALL of these housetraining articles! My 2½ month old GSD has a thing about pooping in his crate, and then managing to cover himself in it. On the upside, he's very soft from his baths... This opened my eyes to how long it really takes to potty train a puppy, and that I'm not even close in age to expect him to be able to "do better" with it - I've only ever had already-grown dogs & was worried I was doing something wrong. Thank you for the article!
