Newbie (1/14)

  1. She's been tested for everything and she's perfectly healthy! I would crate train her by making her go in the crate about thirty minutes before I left so she'd be comfortable, and then I'd leave. She's fine in the crate when I'm there, but as soon as I close the apartment door she starts barking. I usually let her be free when I'm gone, I'm in a studio apartment (1200 sq ft so it's still pretty big), but there aren't any bedroom doors or anything.
  2. Hey guys! First time post here so I hope this post is in the right place! 2 years ago I adopted my wonderful Border Collie/Springer Spaniel mix from a family who was moving and wasn't able to keep her. She was 6 months old at the time. Her first owner said she was fully housebroken, but I quickly learned that was not the case! I went through the basics of potty training, and she was okay being alone in my house as long as I blocked off the upstairs. (She seemed to think that going on the hardwood wasn't okay, but it was okay on the carpet) I had a fenced in yard, so I could let her out whenever I wanted. Now, I just moved into a brand new loft complex. I don't have a private backyard, but there is a fenced in dog park on the property. I take her out four times a day, but if I leave her alone for even just an hour, I'd still come back to various pee and poop spots. My day is usually: wake up, take her out, feed her, wait an hour or two, take her out, then take her out before I feed her dinner, and then an hour after dinner. Thankfully, I work from home most days so I can keep an eye on her. I tried crate training her, but as soon as I leave the house and she's in the crate, my neighbors say she'll bark consistently until I get home. I love her so much, but I need your help!
