    Hello! And kudos to Hugo for being an assistance dog!

    Since he is crated daily , how many times a week would you say he pees in there? Does he ever have accidents in the house?
    Do you ever leave him alone un-crated? Does he chew/eat whatever bone you leave with him? Is there bedding inside the crate?

    It’s possible that he is urinating in the crate due to separation anxiety. My suggestion would be to crate him occasionally during the day when you are home. Remove any bedding from crate so that peering in there would have a negative consequence for him.

    How is your pack structure with him? Who initiates attention? Is he allowed on furniture?
