    Hi all
    Would really appreciate some advice.
    Bear with me, might be a tricky one to explain.

    we have a border terrier who is about 14 weeks old. He is great when we are around, goes to the toilet outside and his poos are perfectly normal however when he is left in his crate/ pen over night he makes such a mess. He leaves little crumbs of poos everywhere! I can’t explain i, it’s literally like a poo explosion of tiny poos.
    Sorry if too much info! and sorry if it’s not explained very well.

    I can send pics if needed haha!

    Is he happy in his crate?

    Yes, he only goes in there when it’s bed time and when we are at work, but he isn’t limited to it, we have a little pen around it so he can have a little run and play instead of being confined to one space. But never had any problems before, it’s only within the last week this has happened.
