joshdew she will learn the rules of the house and i agree on the gentle training house rules for Luna 1.stay out of the kitchen i believe dogs do not belong in there i keep her food in the living room 2.don't chew on or take stuff that isn't yours 3.no barking at the cats she does alright needs a little more work with the cats tho lol and if anyone else has any input please feel free to speak up.

I believe it was Suzanne Clothier on this subject: new dogs have three questions when they come into a new home:
1. Who is in charge?
2. What are the rules?
3. Where do I fit in?
And we need to answer these questions or the dog will.
Yeah she knows im in charge shes is a submissive dog shes doing better and is going inside and outside on her own and today she was kinda mad when i left i think because she moved both her water and food dish and spilled all the water and almost all her dog food but she is finally walking around on the hardwood flooring to i had some blankets for her to walk on until she figured out that it was safe to walk on the floor and when she grabs stuff that isn't hers. she keeps moving my wallet around so i had to put it in my pocket its leather she didn't chew it up while i was gone im thankful for that lol she keeps grabbing my shoes to and not any of the others

I might consider letting her bond with you for a week or two before you ask too much of her.

Toss food onto the new surfaces, put her food bowl on the next step up and push it farther with each meal.
