OK I've had him for 4 days now. Buddy is 8 weeks old. He's the cutest thing in the world but OMG! I'm trying to do everything correctly, I put a treat in the crate, I don't leave him in here for too long, I'm trying my best to give positive reinforcement. BUT he hates the crate, I feel awful when he cries and scratches to get out (yes I look the other way). Today I must have taken him outside 9 times to "do his business." Yet at the end of the day, he got away from me and went straight for my $800 rug and peed on it. How do you tell if your puppy is scratching and whining in the crate because he needs to go pee, or if he is just trying to get out? Any answers will be appreciated, I'm sleep deprived and desperate.
