I have a 14 week lab. Shes a fast learner and doing very well and I'm very happy about her progress. Expect she occasionally pees in the kennel (2-3 times a week). Often when shes alone for short periods of time 2-4 hours. But doing well over night and throughout the work day. Any suggestions?

do you have a pad or cushion or some kind of bedding in the crate?

make sure you air him out BEFORE any crate time!

yes she has a blanket in the crate.

I would remove the blanket. Also, If these short periods come shortly after meal time or a drink, she may not be able to hold it as well as over night when she hasn't had a drink for a couple hours.
