Thanks for the advice I got in the toilet training section where I went through what I had been doing and whether it was right or not. I think we will get there with toilet training eventually! I feel less worried about that now........
However, my two issues now are separation and sitting down on walks. I have read everything I can find on separation and I am convinced that is what Bebhinn has. I try to leave her in a room and she howls, cries, whines, barks, scratches the door and urinates and all of that was in 15 mins.
I have tried leaving treats in there, a stuffed kong, chew toys. I have tried going in and out of the door many times and increasing the time but it doesn't seem to be working. I have only had her 4 days, but still........
I haven't been crate training her as she is calm in the bedroom, sleeps etc. But I think now I might start. I have set up the crate in the living room and will try to use it over the next day or two by giving her treats every time she goes in, along with a kong and chew. And she won't get any of these if she is out of the crate. Then I will try disappearing.
My other issue is sitting down on walks. When we leave the house she sits down in the drive and does not move. I have tried bribing with treats but I know that is not meant to be good - they are meant to be rewards. She is generally OK once she is out on the walk, but she does the same on the drive on the way back and doesn't want to go in the house. Any suggestions?
