Help with my 1yr old poodle?

I've had him for about 3 days i do not have a problem with him during the day,
i take him out to potty in the day after he eats and he does great. but at night he does his business in the house. I know it's going to take a while,but do you think i should get him a crate for night time? will he cry and potty in the crate? he it's my first dog and i really want to keep him. My kids love him. I do not give him anything after 7:oopm Help please..

  • You should try a crate. He might cry for a while but if it's the right size he wont go to the bathroom in it. if it's too big he will.

  • Don't give him anything to eat after 5pm and take him out last thing before you go to bed at night. Make sure he poops before you bring him in.
