5 month old behavior changed...
I need some advice please..
3 nights in a row this week my puppy has pooped in her crate. We come inside for the last time around 11 pm. I wake at 6 am to her gagging/throwing up from eating her poop. Yuck. I've trained her to ring bells attached to my front door when she needs to go out. Last night I put them on the door to her crate and at 4am took her out. At 5 am she rang the bells and out she went. NO problems. Hoping this has solved the poop in the crate issue.
Next is her dismal recall. I haven't done a lot of ''Training'' on this. I just make it out to be a big party when she comes when called and she's been doing great! Until the last few days. I call her and she looks at me as she slinks away. Which really ticks me off. IF I beat her I could understand but since I don't.... anyway, I put her leash on her and worked on her recall today. Still having a party when she comes to me and have added small bites of weinie. Took her a few times to get better but she really acts like I've done her wrong and I can't think of anything I've done to make her behave this way.
If anyone has any other suggestions or, better yet, a possible explanation of why she's started behaving this way I would appreciate the help.
