Scott Friday, your namesake pooped in his kennel three times today.
Dogs should not be pooping in the house, let alone their kennel.
Rule of thumb: take the dogs age in months and add 1 - that’s how often they can hold their pee/poop. So 2 months + 1 = 3 hours. 3 months + 1 = 4 hours. Take the dog out every X hours. S/he will let you know at night if they have to pee/poop by whining. As soon as they start, take them out let them do their business and give them a treat/praise so they learn that this is the behavior you want. And, yes, you will have interrupted sleep for several months as they grow. This is what you signed up for when you got a dog. This is what you have to do to have a dog that doesn’t poop in his kennel - or the house! - because they haven’t been taught that pooping is for OUTSIDE.
