I have a 8 week old Mini Schnauzer. I bought and ex pen for her today for when I am not home. I know alot of people on this forum use them. So my qusetion is, how big should it be for her? I had it full size at first and it had room for her wire crate, toys, food and water bowls, and pee pad.

When I first put her in, she went right away and pooped and peed on the pad. Then, later, she peed right in front of her crate instead of her pad which is about a foot from her crate.

Should I make the pen smaller, or add something else, or give her time?
