My now 3 yr old hound rescue is not wanting to go potty first thing in the morning. She's been housetrained for 2+ years and still gets a small treat (used to encourage potty training in the beginning, but now given only for morning pee). She's crate-trained, so I say "no potty, no treat" and she happily re-enters her crate until I take her out 30-60min later to try again. In the past, having to re-crate right away made her compliant and she wouldn't do it again for weeks or months, but this week, it's been 3 days of this behavior and I have to get her to potty before going to work, don't I? Help please!
