I don't know what could've happened. Training wise, she gets the same treatment Finn does; 45-60 minutes a day of one on one OB training and then periodically through the day we work on little things.

It's possible her hormones are running wild. How long does it usually take post spay for them to calm down?

Counter surf is maybe the wrong word. I have two end tables that are next to my couch and a coffee table. There's about 18" between the couch and the end tables and about 24" between the couch and coffee table, but she is notorious for jumping off the couch or ottoman and onto the end table. I keep joking she needs to be an agility dog because she will practically kill herself trying to get to something she wants. Maybe the better phrase is "Table Surf".

I had a Schipperke mix that was off leash 2x in his life - one he ran into a corn field, the 2nd time was on a long drag line and he went 40 feet to the car. I did tether him to another dog who was trusted off leash and that was all the freedom he could ever have. He didn't mind/know any different. Fenced yard.

It sounds like she is sensitive and trying to offer behaviors to you based on what you are doing - stop with the NIlif and instead do something to engage her, reward her, and tell her what to do. She's confused. She needs you to interact with her in a positive way, reinforcing what you want to see.

Check out Dr. Sophia Yin's website. She has people tether the dog to them, keeps it upbeat and uses the sit a lot.
I've never had a Pom before, but I have had dogs from the Spitz family in the past. The house we are moving to has a fenced yard. She was doing so very well off leash. The last time she bolted was about three months after we brought her home. I moved way too fast training wise and it was my fault. Since she was 100% when it came to recalling (100ft long lead, so she never felt like she was on one), I figured it was okay to just let her out to potty without one. Needless to say, she's always going to be tethered to something when outside.

I will have to try that. I've been trying to engage her and it seems like she's just on shutdown mode; she'll just sit down and stare at me. I've never been a fan of the tether method, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

To each their own, I guess. I could leave anything in front of Finn and I can expect that he won't take it. It's something I train from the beginning as it keeps them from picking up something potentially harmful during walks. I don't think it unreasonable to be able to expect a dog to leave something alone, no matter where it's at.

Shaolin Unsure of exact age, but her Gotcha Day is in April, so just about a year. She's spayed, but she did go through a full heat prior to spaying.
