Doggie door and well fenced yard. My old guy, Banjo(RIP) had life long bowel issues, he had to have outside access at all times. I have a great setup that in my mind is a huge de-stresser for dogs(in/out when they want or need), so I'm rolling with that.
Allie shows precursors for full blown S/A. Crazy greeting ritual and all manners go out the window when I get home. Cable sits and waits for me, Allie loses her mind. I'm walking a razors edge with her. I need to instill some boundaries while making sure I don't lose her to anxiety. I'm so so close to having her fully on track and I don't want to derail her with a bad decision. She is young and still puppy-brained, but oh-so smart and willing and incredibly focused on me. I see so much potential in her it's maddening.
