My male schnoodle puppy will be 1 at end of month. We have crate trained him since we got him from breeder on May 4,2008. Last night, we took him out twice about 8:00 and 9:00 PM (he went pee) but then went poo on our living room carpet. Shouldn't he be trained by now? We did have 4 inches of snow though which is the most we have had this winter. Do you think that could have something to do with his accident? Also, when will he stop chewing shoes, beanie babies, paper towels and other trash? I thought when dogs get older that they don't get into as much mischief. Is it possible that he'll always get into stuff or is it more common for dogs to slow down on chewing things after 18 months or 2 years old?
