So of course when I have to go places such as school or my job, I have to keep Chilli in his kennel so he won't mess up anything while I am gone. I keep a little pee pee pad in there for him, just in case if he has to go potty while we are out of the house. When I get back home, he has torn his pad up and has peed all in his cage, making him smell quite bad. Does anyone know or have any tips on how to train him not to chew up his pad while I am out? I make sure that I keep plenty of toys in there while I am gone, and I try to make it as less boring as it can be for him, but he resist and tears it all up, and when he has to go use the potty, he doesn't know where so the ether uses it in his bed (which makes me have to wash it around 2 times a day) or just out in his kennel. I aways make sure that he gets out all of his energy before I leave too. I jump around and play with him for around an hour every single morning to see if he will get tired and lay down for a bit while I am gone. He goes to bed when it is time for me too go, but I find him everyday when I get back with his kennel covered with the shredded pad. All of my family members are out of the house, and I can't just leave him out since we really have no fence. Does anyone have any ideas of how I could get him to stop chewing up his pad, or is it not really preventable, because that it what your puppy is going to do?
