My puppy keeps messing in his crate! help!!?

Question by I ♥ Penguins: My puppy keeps messing in his crate! help!!?
My puppy has been in “crate training” for about 2 weeks, and NEVER had an accident. All of a sudden he’s had 4 accidents in the last 2 days. His crate is small enough so that he can turn and lay down, nothing more. We give him plenty of toys/things to chew on. I just don’t understand how he can go for 2 weeks without a problem and all of a sudden be crapping in his crate! OH and he won’t pee in his crate, only crap. Any advise? Thanks!
no, I give him SO much praise when he goes to his little “potty spot” in our yard, I probably sound rediculous to my neighbors lol.
I understand that he needs to go out at least every 2-3 hours, and that he’s only about 9 weeks old…but I just don’t understand why he would all of a sudden start doing this, esp. since nothing changed…

Have you stopped praising him for doing his business where he’s meant to?
