Please help! My husband and I just adopted a 6 or 7 year old collie mix a little over a month ago. We have designed our laundry room for her for bed time and when we're at work. Everything was fine, except a couple isolated incidents, where she would bark and jump at the door that leads inside. On those isolated incidents it had been windy or storming so nwe assumed she was scared and needed comfort. However, in the past week she has done it every night. On these nights my husband or I have to sleep in our spare bedroom downstairs as we have not had her go upstairs to our room due to the dog and our cat not getting along. The upstairs has become our cats safe place. I have tried letting her bark it out, but that gets frustrating to hear, leaving her outside for a longer time on her last potty session of the night, we just put up a doggy gate tonight and still that did not help the situation. Please please help. I really miss sleeping next to my husband. And mind you, she doesn't do this during the day when we leave for work or the store.
