    Borders are high energy 'working' dogs. They need a job, and plenty of room.

    I honestly can't imagine keeping one in a 'crate', but then I can't imagine doing that with any animal.

    Yes, I have one.
    This is my third and I agree.

    She will never see the inside of a crate once she reliably goes (only) outside.

    Perhaps the crate is producing anxiety leading to her issue. Just a thought. All animals are different, but our border was very quick on the potty training. She made one mistake, a test I think as she did it right in front of us, and never again.

    On the other hand our golden retriever was very difficult to convince. And he's a very intelligent and obedient dog.

    Been crating her just at night the last couple days and it was encouraging.
    Until today.

    Switching her feed to grain free and think that helps.

    Have tried several spray repellents/enzyme cleaners.
    They don't work
