I have had her tied to me and kenneled a little if needed. I usually keep the dogs with me when I go places. The wether has been good enouph that I could leave them in the car here and there while doing my run arounds. She never goes in the car. My neighbors dog (a basset named Zelda) is her best friend. She never goes potty in their house no matter how hard those two play. I got her a tie out that is only used while we are out with her, it seems to give her a bit more room to sniff and go, rather then staying right by us while doing our own thing. She tends to stay by us anyway, but thought that might help. I gave her an arms leangth of room on her leash when I tied her to our bed post so she could sleep with us and can't get down to potty. That seems to work. Hopefully, things are getting better. Im so happy, I was so affraid that my husband might take her back if something didn't happen quick, Im so glad this seems to be getting somewhere. I really wanted to keep her and it looks that I may get what I wanted.
